3. Spaghetti with Classic Marinara

Many of the recipes in this book utilize packaged products like pasta sauce, chicken broth or ramen that we combine with fresh ingredients to make something quick and delicious. This is more of a made-from-scratch dish that takes some time but is totally worth the effort. You can really taste the difference between this marinara and the ones that you pour out of a jar. This sauce bursts with bright tomato flavor and the fresh basil really gives this Spaghetti with Classic Marinara by Tiffani Thompson and Larone Thompson a boost. A pinch of red pepper flakes provides a subtle kick, but you can omit it if you prefer. Credit: Reprinted with permission from Noodle Worship by Tiffani & Larone Thompson.

4. Orange Chick’n

This tofu chick’n has a crispy exterior with a divine sticky orange sauce coating. This Orange Chick’n by Llyod Rose is sweet and spicy and very addictive. The orange zest is truly the ingredient that makes this dish special with high notes of citrus. I remember when I created this recipe, I made it for three days straight for others to try because it was just too good. I promise if you made a top five list of all the recipes inside this book, this Orange Chick’n would make the list! Reprinted with permission from Crazy Good Vegan by Lloyd Rose.

Aside from showing you my favorite way to make pulled jackfruit come so close to the “real thing,” I’m letting you in on a secret ingredient many cooks use to create the sticky barbecue sauce you see on ribs—Coca-Cola®! Or, any similar dark sweet cola. I wish you nothing but absolute satisfaction as you bite through the bun and into this smoky, sweet, savory and absolutely succulent jackfruit. Enjoy this Pulled Barbecue Jackfruit by Llyod Rose! Reprinted with permission from Crazy Good Vegan by Lloyd Rose. Page Street Publishing Co. 2022. Photo credit: Sarah Kermalli.

8. Garlic-Chili Noodles

This Garlic-Chili Noodles by Tiffani Thompson and Larone Thompson is all about the chili oil, that fire engine–red elixir that’s a permanent fixture on the tables of every Sichuan restaurant. You could certainly buy a jar of it, but making it at home is surprisingly simple and the results are worth it. This chili oil is bold, fragrant and balanced—hot, but not blow-your-top hot. One of the best ways to enjoy freshly made Sichuan chili oil is, naturally, over noodles, in this case those great knife-cut wheat noodles from China. All it takes is some sliced scallions and cilantro (if you prefer) to complete the dish. If you find that you enjoy the chili oil as much as we do, consider making a double or triple batch to keep on hand; it lasts for weeks at room temperature.
9. Moroccan-Spiced Vegetable Stew with Lemon Almond Amaranth
