Lay out tofu cubes on dry towel, cover with another towel, and press lightly, to dry. 

Lay tofu cubes out onto a large cookie sheet, covered with parchment paper. Drizzle tofu cubes with olive oil, 2 teaspoons of minced garlic and 2 teaspoons of minced ginger, and 2 Tbsp of Tamari. Using a spatula and your hand, so you don’t break up the tofu cubes, turn the cubes of tofu so they are evenly coated with the garlic, ginger, oil and Tamari. Bake at 400 degree oven for 10-15 minutes, until golden brown, turning halfway done.

 

Meanwhile, Cover bottom of wok with oil. When oil is hot, add the onions, carrots, garlic and ginger. Continue cooking at med. high heat, stirring constantly for 5 minutes. Then add the green beans and mushrooms. Steam the eggplant for 5 minutes, until soft, before adding to the stir-fry. Add more oil or a little water if needed.  Add the kale and the cauliflower, stir for a few minutes, then add the peppers and summer squash. Again add more oil or water if necessary. 

Add the Bok Choy and cook for a few minutes more, than add the mirin and tamari. Add the cooked tofu to the stir-fry, and toss together. When vegetables are finished (they should be cooked, but not too soft), add the dark sesame oil, hot sesame oil and more tamari if desired.

Rice Paper “Bacon”

4 servings
Ingredients
 10 sheets of rice paper
 2 tablespoons olive oil
 3 tablespoons soy sauce (or tamari for gluten-free)
 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
 1/2 teaspoon liquid smoke
 1/2 tablespoon maple syrup (this only gives a slight sweetness to round out the flavors, but
you can feel free to omit or reduce it)
 ¼ tsp. onion powder
 ½ tsp. garlic powder
 generous pinch of ground black pepper
 pinch of paprika (I used hot Spanish paprika)
Procedure
1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
2. Whisk together all of the ingredients for the marinade in a wide bowl until the nutritional yeast is incorporated
well; prepare a second wide bowl filled partway with water.
3. Prepare a metal, oven-safe rack with a sheet of parchment paper.
4. Cut rice paper into thick strips, or to the size that you want. Note that the strips will shrink in size a little bit
when cooking. Some brands of rice paper will crack a little bit when you cut them; Use a large, very sharp knife
to minimize this.
5. Take two strips and stack them. Holding them together, dip them very quickly into the water. (UPDATE: if you
have kitchen scissors, try dipping 2 whole rice paper sheets stacked together into the water, then cutting them
into strips instead. I don't recommend cutting wet rice paper with a knife, it's not as easy as it seems). They
should then start to stick together on their own. Gently squeeze excess water from the fused pair of rice paper
strips.
6. Dip the fused pair of rice paper strips into the marinade and coat it fairly generously; place it onto the
parchment paper.
7. Repeat with additional rice paper/rice paper strips until the rack is filled. NB: Periodically stop to whisk the
marinade again and re-emulsify it; the oil will start to separate over time.
8. Bake for about 7 to 9 minutes, or until crisp. If your oven has hot spots, rotate the tray partway through. The
strips can burn easily, so keep an eye on it and take them out as soon as they're done. The end result will be
mostly crispy with some slightly chewy parts.
9. Once fully cooled, store leftover rice paper bacon in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days. It
will stay pretty crispy.

Vegan Vegetable Frittata

4-6 servings
Prep time: 30 minutes
Cook time: 35 minutes
Ingredients:
1 Tbsp ground flax seed
2 Tbsp water
8 oz firm tofu
1 cup coconut milk
Juice from 1 can of chickpeas
¼ tsp turmeric
1/8 tsp paprika
8 oz vegan cheese (optional)
1 lb chopped frozen organic spinach
¾ tsp salt
¼ tsp ground white pepper
3 Tbsp freshly chopped parsley
1 Tbsp freshly chopped dill
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 medium onion (about 1 cup)
1 large potato or 2 small potatoes
2 large garlic cloves, minced
2 Tbsp white wine
1 tsp dried oregano
1 cup cherry tomatoes
¼ bunch of broccoli (about 2 cups of florets)
6 mushrooms

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
2. In a small bowl mix ground flax seed and water, set aside.
3. Chop onions, and cube potatoes into quarter-inch cubes.
4. On medium heat in 12 inch cast iron pan, sauté onions and potatoes in olive oil, until potatoes
are soft. As needed, add 2 Tbsp of water at a time, to deglaze pan and prevent potatoes from
sticking. (I usually add 2 Tbsp three times, for a total of 6 Tbsp of water). Keep scraping the
bottom of pan periodically as needed. This will take approximately 10 minutes.

5. While the onions and potatoes are cooking, run frozen spinach under hot water until
defrosted. Drain and then squeeze out extra water. Set a side.
6. Drain tofu and press between a towel to remove excess water. Crumble tofu into food
processor and pour in coconut milk. Pulse until mixture is fully pureed. Scrape down sides and
bottom of food processor and pulse again. Pour pureed mixture into large mixing bowl.
7. Next, using a blender, nutribullet, stand up mixer, or immersion blender, beat the juice from 1
can of chickpeas, also known as aquafaba, until thick and frothy.
8. Fold the frothed aquafaba into the tofu and coconut milk puree. Then, fold in the ground flax
seed mixture, ½ tsp salt, pepper, 2 Tbsp chopped parsley, dill, turmeric, and paprika into
mixture. Once thoroughly mixed, set aside.
9. Cut broccoli into small florets. Then cut mushrooms into thin slices. Add broccoli, mushrooms,
minced garlic, and white wine into pan. Let cook for 5 minutes.
10. Cut cherry tomatoes in half and add into pan along with spinach. ¼ tsp salt, and oregano.
Continue cooking and keep scraping the bottom of pan as needed for a few more minutes or
until all liquid is evaporated.
11. Pour tofu mixture into pan so as to cover vegetables. Smooth out with spatula so everything
is evenly covered and then put into oven.
12. Bake in oven for about 20-25 minutes, until it is starting to set, and puff up.
13. If adding vegan cheese, remove from oven now and sprinkle on top. Return to oven, and
continue cooking for 10 more minutes, until cheese melts and frittata is firm and has golden
edges.
14. Remove from oven. The pan will be very hot. Serve with oven mitt over handle.
15. Cut into wedges and serve. Garnish with 1 Tbsp chopped parsley.

Barry Estabrook – Author of TomatoLands: How Industrial Ag Destroyed Our Most Alluring Fruit Landline number- 

Bio: Youthful stints doing slug labor on a midwestern dairy farm (hot!) and being tossed about on a commercial fishing boat off Nova Scotia (frigid!) taught me that writing about how food is produced is a hell of a lot easier than actually producing it. For several blissful years, I received a steady paycheck from the late, lamented Gourmet magazine. Now I write for the New York Times, Saveur, Epicurious, OnEarth, AtlanticLife.com-- pretty much anyone who will pay me. I also blog at www.politicsoftheplate.com, which received the 2011 James Beard Award for best food blog. I live on a 30-acre plot in Vermont where I putter around in a large vegetable garden (a great place for a procrastinating writer), tend a small flock of laying hens, make maple syrup, and brew some of the vilest hard cider on the planet.
