COLD CUCUMBER- CHILE NOODLES
Makes 4 to 6 servings  

1 pound thick flat rice noodles 
2 English cucumbers 
2 green onions, white and green parts, finely sliced diagonally 
2 tablespoons toasted sesame oil 
2 tablespoons sesame seeds 
1⁄4 to 1⁄2 teaspoon sea salt 
4 tablespoons chile oil 

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. If your rice noodles already contain salt, do not add salt to the water. Cook the noodles until al dente, approximately 6 minutes. 

Meanwhile, cut the cucumber into ribbons using a vegetable peeler or slice very thin using a mandolin. 

Drain the noodles, rinse under cool water, and place in a large bowl. Toss with the cucumber ribbons, green onions, sesame oil, sesame seeds (reserving 1 teaspoon for garnish), and 1⁄4 teaspoon of the salt (more to taste, if necessary). Divide among serving plates. 

Drizzle each portion with 1 tablespoon of the chile oil (or use more sesame oil if you don’t want spice) and garnish with the remaining sesame seeds. You can also toss the noodles in only the sesame oil, salt, and sesame seeds, leaving the cucumber ribbons and green onions to place on top of the noodles in each serving. I think this looks prettier! 

If you have leftovers, soften the noodles by heating them with a bit of water in a covered pan or heat in a microwave. Drain any excess water before serving.

Canadian media personality Toyota, creator of the vegan Hot for Food blog and the YouTube channel of the same name, presents satisfying recipes for “indulgent, delectable, gourmet vegan comfort foods.” Toyota refashions classic stick-to-your-ribs fare with vegan substitutes such as nuts, tofu, and friendly fats. A chapter titled “Badass Brunches” showcases buttermilk biscuits, waffles with berry syrup and cream, and six plant-based variations on bacon. Finger foods presented here include crispy crabless cakes and party-friendly jalapeño poppers. Soups include a tummy-warming one made with wontons, and mains include deep-fried avocados stuffed with jackfruit. The Mozz, a meltable cashew-based mozzarella replacement, can serve as a topping for onion soup and gyros. For lighter fare, Toyota suggests Thai-inspired roasted green-curry cauliflower, and though salads and raw-veggie dishes are not Toyota’s focus, there are recipes for rich aiolis for sandwich spreads and dressings for salads. Desserts contain gluten, sugar, and shortening and offer “framework recipes” for customizable chocolate/vanilla cake batter and dough for apple fritters or cinnamon rolls. Some recipes require high-speed blenders, food processors, or a deep-frying setup. In this excellent book of hearty, bold recipes, Toyota makes good on her promise to offer “indulgent, not pious” vegan fare. (Feb.)

I received this book in exchange for an honest review which has not altered my opinion of this book. Alright, this YouTuber is one of my favorite when it comes to her vegan food videos. I absolutely love her! This cookbook is a wonderful example of what she has created in the vegan food world. This book has recipes that go all over, and she starts of by telling you that it’s not meant to be a healthy food cookbook, which the majority of vegan cookbooks are. This one is comfort food, so it’s delicious food that isn’t concentrating on calories but on health. The recipes in this book are delicious and I’ve even got my omnivorous boyfriend to proclaim that the pea pesto linguini is a classic that he will eat whenever I make it. I’m excited about that. I highly recommend this cookbook for anyone interested in the vegan lifestyle and doubts that it can be tasty, it’s delicious!! 4.5 out of 5 from me, I do wish there were more pictures.
