VEGAN COOKING IS EASY
One of the themes of this book is that cooking is easy and that vegan cooking is easy, and that men and boys should be able to cook for themselves and for the goddess in their lives – whether it is their busy, over-worked mother, their girl friends, or their wives.
Women like vegan food because they are always thinking about controlling their weight.
Women and girls like men and boys who can cook. Compatibility in the kitchen may indicate compatibility in other rooms. Cooking together makes a perfect first date.
So, boys and men: Learn some vegan recipes and cook them up for the goddess in your life, and they will love you for it.

¼ cup bean sprouts
2 tablespoons coconut oil
2 shiitake mushrooms, sliced
1 tablespoon dried, pickled Chinese radish
1 package (16 ounces) extra-firm tofu, cut into cubes
1 tablespoon shredded carrot
3 ½ ounces flat rice noodles, cooked according to package directions
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon vinegar
2 tablespoons light soy sauce
1/8 cup water
Lime wedges for garnish
2 to 4 tablespoons roasted peanuts for garnish (to taste)
Wash all vegetables well and remove hulls and root tips from the bean sprouts. Set aside.
Heat oil with 1/8 cup of water in a wok. Water added keeps the oil from burning. Add shiitake mushrooms, radish, tofu and carrot and stir-fry several minutes. Add noodles, sugar, vinegar, soy sauce and water and continue to steam stir-fry until done.
Serve pad Thai with lime wedges, peanuts and the bean sprouts. Makes 3 to 4 servings.
