Dinner 10/22

Tofu Paprikash over Pumpkin Noodles

Roasted Butternut Squash Soup with Toasted Seeds (additional pic)
(a variation on this recipe from Emeril -- we subbed with veg stock, skipping the wine and cream)*

Seared/Steamed Green Beans with Shiitake Mushrooms


Chocolate Espresso Spelt Cake (additional pic)
(from Gourmet October 2005)

a very tasty cake -- and a bonus, we used spelt flour ;)

for the cake we subbed 1/2 box of soft tofu for the 2 eggs, and unsalted soy margarine for the unsalted butter. The topping was from the ganache a few weeks ago, as we had plenty of leftover, so we froze it to see how it would hold up. We stuffed into a pastry bag and piped it on top with the cacao nibs -- it only lasted until the shot was taken, and then melted ;)

* We were looking for a different version of the butternut soup and happened to catch Emeril this morning -- the orange and the roasted seeds were nice additions...
