Vegetarian Barbe-Fu

Vegetarian Barbe-Fu

This was a new one for me, trying to create something delicious for a team member’s going away party at work. Most of my meals/dishes are very meat forward, but she’s vegan so we tried to make her a meal she’d remember. This tofu recipe blends the flavors, techniques, and style of a normal barbecue, but replaces the meat with extra firm tofu.

Roasted Mushroom Pho

This is a hearty broth made with slow roasted mushrooms and has very deep and developed flavors. I had some mushrooms to use and wanted to try something different with them. This is a recipe for someone who wants to spend the day making the house smell amazing!

Alternately, keep it light with a simple and delicious slice of crusty sourdough.
