Now, Jim isn't a lover of greens. He will eat spinach if it's in a curry or a soup where the flavour is masked by lots of spice. I give him credit though, he will always try it, but he's just not too fond of kale. I remembered a recipe that I had seen in VWAV for Garlicy Kale with Tahini Dressing. Now, garlic, we love, so I thought I would try that and see if I could win Jim over to the "greens" side.
Isa warned in the sauce recipe that it made a lot, so I halved it & still had a lot. It was delicious and complimented the kale wonderfully. Alas, Jim still isn't a fan. He did enjoy the rest of what was on his plate though.
Some brown & wild rice, baby carrots and TA-DA!! another dish from ED&BV. When I first got my book and excitedly browsed through it, I knew I had to make this - Cumin Lime Tofu. I used frozen tofu because I have quite a few bricks frozen and I want to rotate them out. It worked great!
HOLY CRAP!! This is soooo FREAKIN' good I wish I'd doubled the recipe. Like the chimis I made, this took no time to throw together. There was not a lot of fussing with preparation or cooking, yet it tasted like I was slaving in the kitchen. Now, I'm a lover of lime, so pretty much anything lime flavoured has me liking it even before I eat it, but Jim gave this a "two thumbs up" as well. The dish is finished with crushed pumpkin seeds on top which give it a little crunch and pulls it all together with a little something extra.
We were pretty full, so we just finished the meal with a nice dish of rainbow sorbet.
I almost always buy this one. Some sorbets contain milk, which I don't care for. I prefer ones that are just water ice & fruit.
So, my second offering from ED&BV is also a hit and if you haven't tried it yet, it's a must. Dreena strikes again!
