How do you eat your avocados?

Besides avocado mashed on toast for breakfast, I like to make this creamy avocado pasta:

New to eating veggie - need hearty dinner ideas

This soup is delicious: http://www.101cookbooks.com/archives/...

Even my dad who is staunchly anti-vegetarian and hates lentils likes it.

What was the worst food you HAD to eat as a kid?

A concoction of chinese herbal medicine for breakfast. basically a super bitter and pungent with sticks and stuff that looked like dirt. It didn't help me grow taller like my mom claimed. Not really food, but pretty awful.

Also root beer float day in 2nd grade was pretty horrible. Root beer tastes disgusting to me.

I just had an amazing lunch in Richardson

Agreed! I like buying their frozen dumplings and cooking them at home for an easy dinner.

Scallions: my favorite "new" ingredient

Here's the recipe (I got it off SeriousEats, but for some reason I can't seem to find the original article):

Thinly chop one bunch of scallions. Heat 1/4 cup of canola / vegetable / any flavorless oil in a pan. Cook 3/4ths of the scallions in the oil on low heat for 10 minutes until scallions are soft and golden brown & the oil is fragrant.

Take pan off the heat & add 1 Tbs of soy sauce, 1 tsp of roasted sesame oil, hot chili flakes to taste.

Mix the oil in with cooked noodles (I use any long, thin noodles I have on hand). Top with remaining raw scallions, chopped fresh cilantro, and toasted sesame seeds (I sometimes use pine nuts because I love the flavor). Salt to taste.

I sometimes cook some bok choy or Chinese broccoli to go along with the noodles and drizzle some soy sauce paste or oyster sauce on top of everything. Makes 2 servings for people with big appetites.

Not the healthiest meal, but so delicious and easy. Enjoy!

Yes, all the time. I cook a lot of Asian food and I use them in almost everything.

I make scallion oil noodles at least once a week - uses up one bunch of scallions. So good.
