Linguine and clams, mapo tofu, and the glory of green papaya
It’s inevitable: Some days you haven’t planned anything to cook, the afternoon sneaks up on you, and all you can do is throw your hands up and say, “Gahhhh! What’s for dinner?” For those times when you need something fast, easy, and tasty, we’ve got you covered. We’ve got three super flavorful dishes here that decisively do not go together but will satisfy you for three different meals this week.
Steamed Clams With Pasta
Whether it’s the cacophonous word ‘clam’ or that you have to eat a pile to feel satisfied, clams are underrated. I’m on a mission to help change it — especially since they’re super affordable and as sustainable as you can get.
We produce reported pieces, profiles, interviews, and rants about what’s broken in the food world (there’s a lot) and how to change things for the better. People sometimes tell me to just keep politics out of it. Respectfully: No. Food is political. We can’t and won’t ignore that.
