Yum, yum, yum – it’s a vegetarian, gluten-free Menu Plan Monday!


Whee! It was a pretty nice week! Some delicious things were cooked and eaten and even occasionally photographed!

I invented one of my new favorite dishes, Sunrise Noodles with Gingered Greens and Tofu. I keep dreaming about that incredible pink color and that soft rice noodle texture and that piquant lime flavor. Duck discovered our new favorite broccoli recipe ever, Roasted Broccoli with Pine Nuts and Lemon Zest (oh man I can’t wait to try it with Meyer lemons). I rescued myself from a cold with improvised Tom Yum soup. And I had my first BLT (gluten-free and vegan, of course) in maybe ten years.

I hope your week to come is as satisfying as mine just was! Enjoy the menu!

Monday: Sunrise Noodles with Gingered Greens and Tofu (Gingered chard and baby bok choy with lime-pink rice noodles and broiled tofu)

Finally, if you meant to participate in this month’s Sugar High Friday but know you won’t make today’s deadline, I will still be accepting entries for the next few days! So just try to get it to me by oh, let’s say, Wednesday evening or so.
