What is pasta? whatever you make it to be. Rethink what we have been socialized and taught to believe is "food" - eat organic, freshly picked and live foods - nourish and honor your body, the earth and the spiritual and healing energy our Godly garden gifts have to offer us. I am currently eating mono meals to simple raw meals. All meals are based on intuitition and what I am growing myself or have on hand from my farmer's market. The least complicated the meal the easier it is for the body to digest so I am mixing no more than 3 things (max) per meal... Mono or as close to mono is my current best bet. So let me share simple recipes that are redesigned deliciousness, nutritious, easily digestible, tantalizing to the taste buds and quick to make (my meals take 5 minutes to make or under...) - Give your body a break, eat a simple, non complicated, raw meal today!

Traditionally this is a spicy sauce containing preserved vegetables, chili oil, Sichuan peppers, pork, and scallions served over noodles. Apparently, there are as many versions of this as there are Chinese cooks! This one is based on one in 'Authentic Chinese cuisine for the contemporary kitchen' by Bryanna Clark Grogan. The addition of sesame or peanut butter is a modern one.
