Sesame-miso vinaigrette

This vinaigrette can serve double-duty as a marinade. I added a few tablespoons to some firm, cubed tofu overnight and grilled it (along with some veggies) the next day. I drizzled more vinaigrette over everything and a little brown rice — simple and de-lish.

Avocado, tofu and spicy peanut rice spring rolls

Adding the sauce straight to the rice — rather than serving it on the side — make these spring rolls great for one-the-go action. It may take you a few tries to master the spring roll wrap, but it’s a really fun way to interact with your food. Just be sure to put the herbs down first so they can be showcased through the translucent rice paper.

Miso and maple-glazed roasted vegetables

A simple, flavorful dish that can be served with a salad? On a weeknight? So easy that you can watch multiple animal GIFs while you make it. (And I KNOW you have leftover miso from my recent orange-miso salmon recipe.)

I made this salad for lunch one day and it hit the spot. Tahini, which is sesame seed paste, has a very nutty taste that incorporates itself especially well on the chicken. Another little hint — I tried putting a few drops of sriracha on my leftovers the next day and it would out of this world.

We ate this after (stupidly) going grocery shopping on a Saturday. It was basically the best reward ever and didn't take long at all.

If you cut these spring rolls in half, they would make an awesome appetizer for a party. Nearly everyone (well, meat-eaters specifically) loves a BLT, and this spring roll version is a pretty unique spin. Plus the aioli is out of this world.

  • 4 rice papers
  • 2 cups cooked rice or bean noodles
  • 3-4 large leaves Swiss chard, roughly chopped
  • 1 regular tomato, cored and sliced thin (using just the flesh will allow for a less runny spring roll)
  • 4 slices of thick bacon OR 8 slices of thin bacon, cooked

Dip one of the rice papers in warm water for about 10 seconds, getting both sides wet. Place the paper flat on a cutting board, allowing

I retained the traditional tomato and bacon for these rolls, but chose Swiss chard as my “lettuce.” Another good green would be spinach or even bok choy – which would make it a little more Asian-inspired.

about 1/2 – 1 inch to hang off the edge so it is easier to grab.  Layer the noodles, chard, tomato slices and bacon on the lower one-third of the roll. Use enough of each ingredient to evenly distribute everything among all four rolls – NOTE: You may not use all the noodles.

Starting at the bottom, pull the flap up and over the filling, tucking it underneath the ingredients. Fold the left and right sides over and continue to roll the paper and ingredients. Here is a helpful video if these directions are not clear.

Continue for all four rolls.

For the wasabi aioli

  • 1/2 cup good mayonnaise
  • 1-2 teaspoons wasabi paste or powder
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1 small clove garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon light soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon rice vinegar

Whisk all ingredients together until smooth. Serve as a dipping sauce with the spring rolls.

Makes four spring rolls and a little more than 1/2 cup aioli.

I try very hard to eat salads for lunch – and then I eat so much hummus instead. But because there is so much flavor in this slaw, you can easily get by on a cup of this and a small carb.

  • about 6 cups snap peas
  • 2 large carrots, julienned (or shredded, way easier)
  • 1 clove garlic, finely minced
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons light soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 teaspoons fresh cilantro, minced
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds, toasted if you please
  • sriracha chili sauce, to taste (I think I went with a few teaspoons and could have done even more)

Clean peas and snap off both ends, being sure to pull off the string along the back. Slice the peas thin (about 1/4-inch thick) on a diagonal.

Whisk together the garlic, olive oil, soy sauce, vinegar, honey, cilantro, sesame seeds and sriracha. Toss the dressing with the peas and carrots.

Serves about 6-8 as a side dish.
