The Chef: Jenny
The Menu: A delicious soba noodle stir-fry punctuated with fresh, chopped swiss chard and artichoke hearts, and accompanied by a nice salty, curry-flavored tvp. For anyone who isn't necessarily "hip" to the vegan-101 "jive," tvp stands for "textured vegetable protein," and is often the first meat replacement that new vegetarians try out.
The Goods: After this weekend's hot, hot heat, we are blanketed in a thick fog today. Is there anything more warm and comforting than a hot plate full of noodles? We think not.
