Fig and Walnut Pasta

The Chef: Elizabeth

The Menu: A hearty pasta doused in cashew cream, chopped walnuts and figs, salt, and a touch of nutmeg. To add to the carby goodness of the main course, Elizabeth prepared a panzanella-style salad of bread, avocado, and cherry tomatoes. Carbs on carbs? It appears we've answered the "to eat or not to eat" question from yesterday.

The Goods: The main course here was inspired by a meal Elizabeth made way back during cookbook week when we tried recipes from 1,000 Vegan Recipes by one of our fantastic columnists, Robin Robertson. This is the best kind of recipe: the kind that you make one time and can then improvise for years to come. And yes, we could totally eat this pasta every day. Remember, we'll be eating in LA this Friday and Saturday and reporting live from Expo West!

Hi There!
May I make a suggestion that this would be a MUCH better blog if you posted the recipes rather than just the pictures. It's disappointing to see a nice photo and to NEVER show any recipes.

I agree with Cindy. It's cruel to us to tell us about and show us yummy food without the recipes.
