Last fall I picked up and left for a journey out to California. I checked into the Sivananda ashram in Grass Valley for a weekend of chanting with Jai Uttal. The experience was unreal. Anyway, that was where I met and connected with Wendy! Please check out her recipe below and look forward to a few more in the future. Thanks, Wendy!
About Wendy: I’ve been veggie on and off all my life but recently moved more to plant based whole food (of Forks of Knives, etc.) diet. Cooking is a meditation for me…chopping and dicing and experimenting with flavor and texture.
I’m a nurse practitioner in Campus Health at NAU (Northern AZ Univ) and constantly appalled at the poor diet of my students…. So I’m teaching a lot of this to them as well.
My quilt quild has a huge potluck holiday party every year. Last year I was signed up to bring a salad. I hadn’t been to the grocery store in almost 2 weeks (I had been busy!) and so my challenge was to make something out of what I had on hand. I didn’t have a lot to work with, but I did have some frozen edamame. I found an edamame salad recipe that I thought I’d try, but when I made the dressing I just didn’t like the smell or the taste. It was time to create something myself.
