Refreshing Summer-time Drinks: Lemonade
What says Summer more than freshly made lemonade? Do you know how to make a great lemonade? Here's a quick and easy recipe to make fresh lemonade exactly the way you like it.
Cooking Vegan for Lent: Eggplant Stew
While cooking professionally I worked in plenty of kitchens where meatless Fridays were observed. Friday Fish Frys and tuna salad were items that were prepared in huge quantities. Not being Catholic, I never quite understood the ritual of not eating meat on Fridays, but as a cook, I made the food that I was directed to prepare.
At the Deli, vast quantities of Tuna Salad were consumed. We were located in a catholic neighborhood and owned by Catholics. When working at the Brewery we could count on the owner, glass of beer in hand, laying down battered fish in the fryer. He was also a staunch Catholic.
While I've remained confused and uneducated about the abstinence and fasting rules, I am now cooking for people who observe the Season of Lent. This is a perfect opportunity to introduce them to 100% vegan food, and learn more about this religious observance.
Beware the heat! Tomatillo Sauce
Sometimes I like to add a bit of heat to my dishes. If I'm making Sonoran Quinoa cakes, or Tofu Chili Tacos, I like to have this tomatillo sauce ready on the side. It's great with rice and beans, or mock chicken fajitas, and other delicious dishes you can think of.
UPDATED: India Spiced Tofu Bites
These Tofu Bites are a great make-a-head snack for the family. They last up to a week, and puts a smile on everyone’s face. They are delicious in salads, stir fry, and even Pasta sauce if you are willing to be that bold. Send the kids to school with them, they’ll ask for more because they shared with their friends.
Make the garam masala ahead of time. It has a long shelf life and it is a spice that can be used for many other dishes.
Remember, the spice mix is a suggestion. Experiment and come up with your own. You can also use different citrus juices. I haven’t tried it yet, but I bet pineapple juice would be excellent.
