For this week’s organic farm to table vegan menu for my regular personal chef client, I made:
- Cold Sesame Noodles with Cucumbers
- Massaged Kale Salad with Dried Cranberries and Pumpkin Seeds
- African Spiced Lentil Soup with Summer Vegetables
Since I had made Cilantro Mint Peanut Sauce for summer noodles dishes, and only used my spicy oil with tamari over noodles for quick and easy noodle and rice dishes.
So I consulted the NYTimes for a recipe and found one that I could adapt. One of the ingredients was chili pepper paste, which I did not have. However, my spicy oil could substitute.
Making other substitutions to create my own variation included using organic maple sugar instead of sugar. Using more peanut butter, tahini and in general bigger quantities of the other ingredients. And I am glad I did since I was using organic thai black forbidden rice noodles instead of white noodles. I imagine these noodles soaked up more of the sauce than white ones.
