Dinner 10/28

Miso-Glazed Eggplant w/ Sesame Seeds
(long eggplant strips, seared, then baked -- finally brushed with a mixture of sake, mirin, agave syrup and red miso, and finished under the broiler for one minute)

Peanut and Sesame Glazed Sweet Potatoes
(baked, then brushed with a mixture of peanut butter, sesame oil, tamari, garlic and ginger, and finished under the broiler for one minute)

Fried Tofu over Jasmine Rice with Scallions (additional pic)

Gyoza (additional pic)
(stuffed with button mushrooms, scallions and napa cabbage)

Sesame Asparagus Vinaigrette (additional pic)
(recipe from Ming Tsai)

obviously, I was obsessed thinking about the broiler and sesame seeds today. ;)

we sort of adapted the usual miso-glazed sliced eggplant for strips of eggplant (a late season roadside stand pickup this week) as well as the strips of sweet potatoes -- very form-based food choices. Here's a before broiling picture of both of them.

and, yes -- gyoza's again -- no shiitakes this week however, Miriam ;)

also, there was an early mist coming in off our little lake in the backyard that framed the table shot, it's a little clearer in the big verson... very Halloween-esque ;)
