    1. It’s one of those “banned” words that editors circulate and food writers are supposed to avoid!

      1. Not yet! I find silken tofu a little hard to come by. I made some homemade soy milk in early pandemic days and in turn used that to make homemade silken tofu, which was really good. But a lot of work, and it didn’t keep well. I wonder if firm tofu would work almost as well?

  1. I know you are both fans of his book, but if you haven’t yet tried Joe Yonan’s recipe for black bean chilaquiles, I highly recommend. I am not a food writer so I can say it: Yummy! Also, from the list of black food experts referenced, one vote here for Bryant Terry’s book published earlier this year (Vegetable Kingdom) – it’s excellent

    1. Thanks for mentioning that–I must have sort of skimmed over that recipe when I was going through the book! But now I am going to seek it out!

  2. Joy I just bought ingredients for the chilaquiles sauce in Almost Meatless, it looks fantastic!

    1. I haven’t made that in so long I kind of forget what it tastes like 🙂 Let me know how it goes!
