Menu: Curried Tofu and Avocado Dip w/crudites, grilled portobello burgers, corn on the cob, sweet potato fries, and a blackberry, nectarine crisp for dessert
I know, you’re thinking, another tofu recipe?!? Well, we had a good friend of ours over for dinner last weekend and we had been talking the last time we saw him about eating vegetarian (even though we obviously are not). He mentioned that the next time we did dinner together we should cook him a veg meal. I always like to try to introduce people who don’t eat vegetarian to new foods, meals, and ideas. So, I thought this was a good intro to tofu.
The recipe was good, but I found it need a bit more seasoning – I added another garlic clove and a bit more curry powder and I feel it still could have used more. Other than that, it was a great and light appetizer to a wonderful evening 🙂
