Recipe of the Month: JoJo’s Gluten-free Peanut Noodles

It was love at first sight.

We were pretty sure this recipe was going to be a winner when we first saw it in the submissions for our comfort food recipe contest, AMLI EATS. Well, we were 100-percent right. Joanna (JoJo) and her peanut noodle recipe would go on to snag the regional prize for the Chicago region.

Now, let’s talk food.

Gluten-free noodles are never an easy task—especially when you’re making them from scratch. What this recipe does right is it looks to the produce aisle. Rather than going through the hassle of using a noodle maker, Joanna here has us simply cooking […]

Recipe of the Month: Melissa’s Beef Bulgogi Bánh Mì

The bánh mì sandwich is a splendid union of French and Vietnamese cuisines. Resulting from the French Colonial period in Vietnam, most renditions include French contributions like pâté, jalapeño, mayonnaise, and the baguette that encloses the sandwich, while incorporating Vietnamese ingredients such as coriander, cucumber, pickled carrots, and specially marinated meats or tofu.
