This Week's Menu

As we prepare for Connecticut's first hurricane in 26 years, the theme for the week has become comfort food.  Really though, you know I could use any excuse for this theme since it always amounts to my favorite foods.

But there's still time for a cookout!  So our first entree features outdoorsy Barbecue Tofu with Garlic Mashed Potatoes and Chili Lime Corn on the Cob.  I love the way the spicy BBQ sauce and chili powder contrast with the sweet corn and mashed potatoes.

Our second entree is a simple standard I don't often feature:  Sesame Ginger Tofu Stirfry.  I sauteed some lovely broccoli, snow peas, and carrots in this mix, and the colors and flavors go together nicely.

The third entree uses a creamy vegan bechamel sauce to bathe savory chunks of seitan.  It's paired with quinoa and fresh asparagus.  This is a lovely meal any time of year.
