Yakisoba is a delicious Japanese stir-fried noodle dish usually served on a plate as a main or side dish. This Yakisoba (Japanese Stir-fried Noodles) by S.C. Chuang is made with bouncy noodles, colorful vegetables, and protein.

I use a lot of fatty ingredients in this vegan cake, and I make no excuse for that. After all, it’s for St. Patrick’s Day!

Pot roast used to be a regular guest on the dinner table when I was growing up. I vividly remember my mum preparing the roast in the morning and it sizzling away in the oven for a couple of hours before it was served with potatoes and veg. This vegan version of a German-style pot roast is loaded with umami flavor and gives home-cooked comfort food a whole new meaning. This German Pot Roast by Romy London has a soft and succulent texture and is slow roasted in the oven, giving it the ultimate depth of satisfying flavors. To prepare this recipe ahead of time, stop after the flour washing process and rest your dough ball in a colander in the fridge. You can hold it there for up to 3 days before incorporating the seasoning and roasting this bad boy.   Reprinted with permission from The Ultimate Guide to Vegan Roasts by Romy London, Page Street Publishing Co. 2022.
