Spring Peas Chinese Broccoli Stir-Fry

Welcome, Spring! When the days get longer, I always look forward to visiting our favorite Saratoga farmers market for fresh local produce then make healthy and delicious dishes out of it.

This dish today is similar to Snap and Snow Peas Stir-Fry. The snap peas and snow peas are still the "star" here while the broccoli and shiitake mushrooms have been switched to Chinese broccoli and oyster mushrooms.



Gluten-Free Bean Pasta with Veggies Kale, Zucchini, Green Beans

Beans on beans, pulses or more pulses. What do you say? Plant-protein power! Made from organic edamame and mung bean, Explore Cuisine's gluten-free fettuccine* carries the leftover bean "sauce" very well and makes a nice warm veggie pasta lunch on a cool breezy day. Alternatively, make a quick chickpea salad, toss it with pasta and save this pasta salad or Edamame and Mung Bean Fettuccine Veggie Salad Bowl for the hot summer days.


This bean fettuccine* on its own tastes very flavorful, warm or at room temperature (cooked and allowed to cool a few minutes). Personally, I enjoy the natural bean flavor of this pasta as it shines through without any sauce, just like this Edamame and Mung Bean Fettuccine Veggie Salad Bowl.


Jackfruit Tofu Green Curry 菠萝蜜绿咖喱

The lazy-cook's idea simply popped when I saw Thai Green Curry Simmer Sauce, placed beside canned Green Jackfruit at my local Trader Joes store. Good thinking, Trader Joes!

One-pot vegetarian jackfruit green curry, why not? How about adding quick, easy and delicious to it?

That will sit alongside my other one-pot dishes such as One-Pot Tomato RiceOne-Pot Pasta and One-Pot Beans and Lentils.


Before I conceived this one-pot idea, I have not even browsed Trader Joes Fearless Flyer! But coincidentally, while I was flipping the flyer book one breakfast morning, that ambitious goal to make a quick, easy and delicious one-pot vegetarian green curry seems not that far off. The Fearless Flyer actually had a write-up for Thai Green Curry Simmer Sauce and Green Jackfruit on the same page, and as recommended combo for cooking.
