Pan-Fried Spicy Szechuan Vegan Shrimp

Mock seafood. It can’t actually be like real seafood, can it? Yes. Yes it can. I am actually still in awe over how cool this vegan shrimp is. I’m not sure if there are other brands, but this one is Sophie’s Kitchen. I saw it at a health food store last week and thought I’d…

Rice Paper Salad Rolls

Rice paper is truly a unique ingredient. When soaked in hot water, it becomes clear and flexible allowing you to make transparent wraps.
