Vegged Out (Episode #215H)

KQED 9: Sun, May 11, 2014 -- 2:30 PM

Flavorful, rich, satisfying vegetarian food? It seems impossible, but when you try these heart veggie entrees, you won't even miss the meat. Sara's Rustic Potato and Green Bean Pie couldn't be more filling - and versatile too. There's nothing bland about Spicy Mushroom Enchiladas, cooled off with a blanket of sour cream and avocado. We're devoted to Mu Shoo Vegetables in Pancakes with crunchy cashews and creamy eggs. Sure, vegetarian food is good for you, but who knew it could taste so good too?

It's Super Bowl time, and for the big game try appetizers - simple foods you can eat with your hands. Sara's got Chorizo Chicken Wings with a secret ingredient - guys will love 'em! Asian-Style Pork Sliders combine juicy pork with the cool crunch of fresh veggies. Beer Batter Shrimp is super crispy yet light and marries well with a zesty Asian dipping sauce. These simple foods deserve a classic drink, Old Fashioned Egg Creams, straight from the deli and into your home.

Carnivores Unite! (Episode #217H)

KQED Life: Thu, May 1, 2014 -- 12:30 PM

We get it: most of America runs on beef, pork and chicken. So today, Sara's got meat and lots of it. Sara marries the juicy burger marries with Korean barbecue for her special Korean Burgers. She'll even show you how to grind your own meat, no special tools needed. Hey "porkitarians," Buttermilk-Fried Pork Chops have two great things going for them - they're super juicy on the inside, extra crispy on the outside. And you'll love Sara's Polenta Lasagna - with crispy polenta cakes in place of traditional noodles, it's even easier and much quicker to make.
