Thai Curry With a Side of Bananagrams

The Chef: Joni and Osha Thai restaurant
The Menu: I ordered a side salad, samosa, and yellow Thai curry with onions, potatoes, tofu, and red peppers.

The Goods: Thai food: the can’t-get-enough-of-it, punched with coconut-curry flavor, best-leftovers-ever cuisine. Seriously, Asian food is probably the best stuff on this earth and I would love nothing more than to have masala dosa, ginger-garlic stiry-fry, and Burmese veggies in my life every single day. While some of our staff are getting to dine on authentic Thai cuisine on the VegNews Vacation in Thailand right now, the rest of us are finalizing the details of the articles to appear in our January+February issue. But, not until we duke it out in a mid-lunch Bananagrams competition. Editors playing word games—that should count as work, right?

Pan-Asian Stew and Slaw

The Chef: Elizabeth and Joseph

The Menu: A variety of Asian-cuisine-inspired vittles. Joseph had prepared a mixture of red quinoa, red Bhutanese rice, and jasmine rice, which Elizabeth used as a base for a Thai-inspired curry with sweet potatoes, tempeh, bell peppers, and coconut milk. On the prettier side of the plate you see a Napa cabbage slaw, which was literally just cabbage, red bell pepper, mirin, agave, a little apple-cider vinegar, avocado, black sesame seeds, and salt.

The Goods: OK, you caught us. Maybe Elizabeth was inspired by today's Recipe Club to make this Thai-ish stew. Maybe the fact that we had a leftover grain blend sealed the deal. Maybe we'd be remiss, considering that it's now October if we didn't share this joke with you: What do vegan zombies eat? Graaaaains. Feel free to leave your favorite vegan jokes in the comments!
