This vegetarian stock uses kombu, dried shiitakes, leeks, ginger, garlic, and soy to recreate the deep flavors of the decidedly un-veggie friendly inspiration.
'Michael Natkin' on Serious Eats
Michael Natkin, author of Herbivoracious, is an outside of the box kind of thinker. And it's precisely that kind of thinking that gives his meatless creations so much style. Take this Peppery Absorption-Cooked Red-Wine Capellini for example—but first take everything you know about pasta-making and throw it out of the window.
It is officially potato salad season. And while we're all for the all-American mayo dressed version, sometimes we like to mix up our picnics and barbecues with something a little different. Adapted from Michael Natkin's Herbivoracious this Potato and Green Bean Salad with Arugula Pesto is gorgeous and green, with snappy green beans and tender new potatoes tossed in a peppery pesto.
