When cooking a stir-fry, you must have everything prepared before you begin. The process of stir-frying goes quickly. Once your protein of choice starts to cook, there won’t be time to continue the preparation of slicing vegetables. You will need to slice the protein, combine the marinade ingredients, chop/slice the vegetables and, finally, mix the finishing sauce all before you begin to cook.

With a little practice, you’ll get the hang of both very quickly. This recipe will make four individual servings.

Jackfruit is a plant that can mimic the texture of meat. A large, greenish fruit, jackfruit has become increasingly available at U.S. grocery stores in the past 10 years, both whole (it's that spiky orb that's usually larger than a football and smaller than a watermelon) or cooked (sold in a…

When August hits, I make a point to enjoy summer like it’s going out of season. Some of my favorite ways of doing so involve tomatoes, and I treat it like my job to eat a year’s worth of the ripest, juiciest, most delicious tomatoes I can get my face on.

We all know that foods rich in omega-3 are good for us. “Oily” fish is a simple way to incorporate that goodness into our diets. By regularly including these types of fish into our meals, we can help reduce the risk of developing cardiovascular disease and lower cholesterol levels.
On the edge of a field on the outskirts of town, a small roadside farm stand does a brisk business. Display coolers keep herbs, greens and other sensitive veggies properly chilled, as tomatoes, potatoes, onions and other room temperature produce sit there looking pretty in crates. The polici…

Wraps were all the rage in the late 1990s and early 2000s, when Americans took the basic idea behind a burrito and expanded it to include a flatbread wrapped around a salad or a mix of complementary fillings. Those wraps had a heydey until the deconstructed wrap - or bowl - came around. That…

The brief, glorious moment when tomatoes are everywhere marks the culinary apex of summer. This solstice is especially fleeting for heirloom tomatoes, the high-maintenance wing of the tomato clan. Too watery and delicate to preserve, heirlooms can only be enjoyed raw. Which means they must b…
