Tag Archives: Cilantro

1 large head cabbage, human head sized, chopped
2 carrots, grated
Bunch red radishes, chopped
2 Serrano chilies, minced
2/3 cup cilantro, minced
1 1/2 cups Mexican mayonnaise
1/2 cup coconut milk
2 tablespoons garlic powder
Salt & pepper to taste

Cut up the stuff. (A Cuisinart is good for the cabbage. So is one of those handheld cabbage choppers.) Put all the vegetal things except the chilies in a big bowl. In another bowl, mix together the mayonnaise, chilies, milk, garlic powder, salt, pepper, and what ever else you think tastes good. Incorporate with the veggies. Stick the slaw in the fridge, and put a note about it on the kitchen mirror for your roommates to see.

10 servings, give or take

1 package extra-firm tofu
Green beans, enough to fill a soup bowl
1/2 onion, minced
1/4 cup cilantro, minced
1 large clove garlic, minced
1/3 cup sesame oil
1/4 cup sesame seeds
1/4 cup soy sauce or Bragg’s
Salt & pepper to taste

Rinse tofu and crumble into a colander. Let this sit on a plate or a bowl or in the sink while preparing the rest. Chop green beans horizontally so that they are no bigger than a pencil eraser. Press excess water from the tofu and turn into a mixing bowl. Add the vegetables and seasonings and mix well. Serve on rice cakes with Sriracha or other favored hot sauce.

2-3 servings
