Well, not this week. Enough is enough. I boldly pounce on the most beautiful head of cauliflower in the stack and set it my cart.

Phat Thai (Stir-Fried Rice Noodles with Tamarind Sauce, Peanuts & Lime) http://thelunacafe.com/phat-thai-stir-fried-rice-noodles-tamarind-sauce-peanuts-lime/ http://thelunacafe.com/phat-thai-stir-fried-rice-noodles-tamarind-sauce-peanuts-lime/#comments Mon, 30 Jan 2017 04:00:14 +0000 http://thelunacafe.com/?p=18016 Phat Thai is a symphony of harmonious flavors. It’s a simple dish really--thin, flat, chewy rice noodles, stir-fried with a salty, savory, sweet, and sour sauce that gives the dish its distinctive flavor. This recipe covers all elements of this delicious Thai noodle dish.

Thai Red Curry Soup http://thelunacafe.com/thai-red-curry-soup/ http://thelunacafe.com/thai-red-curry-soup/#comments Wed, 25 Jan 2017 00:00:43 +0000 http://thelunacafe.com/?p=16686 This is one of those soups that everyone raves about for days after eating it. You will have to make it again and again–so luckily it’s easy to make, especially if you have the Thai Red Curry Paste on hand in the fridge or freezer (which I highly recommend).

Spicy Korean Noodle Soup (Jjambbong) http://thelunacafe.com/korean-spicy-noodle-soup-jjambbong/ http://thelunacafe.com/korean-spicy-noodle-soup-jjambbong/#comments Mon, 23 Jan 2017 23:00:47 +0000 http://thelunacafe.com/?p=16074 Korean soup (Jjambbong) is a spicy, red-hued, infinitely variable, magically comforting noodle soup. Jjambbong is one of the most popular Korean dishes. It's great with prawns and other seafood, but also delicious with vegetables only. The soup broth is clean and bright and only moderately spicy as prepared here.

Dreamy, Creamy, No-Bake Pumpkin Butter Cheesecake http://thelunacafe.com/no-bake-pumpkin-butter-cheesecake/ http://thelunacafe.com/no-bake-pumpkin-butter-cheesecake/#comments Wed, 14 Dec 2016 05:00:22 +0000 http://thelunacafe.com/?p=15937 I have developed dozens of cheesecakes over the years. At one point, I even launched a cheesecake company.

But a recent request from a reader made me realize that my focus has been almost exclusively on baked cheesecakes. A quick scan of my files shows only two no-bake cheesecakes. This post is one small and very tasty step toward correcting that omission.
