Weeknight slop. That caught your attention didn’t it? Yes, you read that right. It’s my go-to weeknight recipe. Faithful, tried, and true. This is not a recipe that is search engine optimized.

Dry Pot Cauliflower is a restaurant favorite that we’ve had countless times in China. It’s our vegetable of choice when eating out. You might think it sounds boring, but we discovered that cauliflower can be amazingly delicious with a little spice, saltiness and the addition of pork belly. There is a reason why this dish […]

While it’s not quite as easy as some of our other tofu dishes (like this simple beef tofu stir-fry for instance), it […]
