a.k.a. Tapas 2: Electric Boogaloo
Soyrizo in Puff Pastries
(olive oil, onion, garlic, soyrizo, smoked paprika, soy cheese, homemade puff pastry)
Grilled White Asparagus
(white asparagus, blanched and then marinated with olive oil, salt, pepper, smoked paprika, then grilled)
White Bean and Mushroom Stew
(olive oil, garlic, onion, cannellini beans, oyster mushrooms, salt, pepper... and smoked paprika)
Steamed Artichokes w/ Saffron Aioli
(garlic, olive oil, saffron, vegenaise)
Vanilla Cake with Pink Frosting
The cake was adapted from the "More From Magnolia" cupcake book -- flax seed (eggs), soy margarine (butter), soy milk (milk) pretty much in a one-for-one substitution. The coloring comes from a beet extract and is vegan...
We had picked out a bunch of recipes to try with our tapas dinner yesterday, but we couldn't get to all of them -- hence tonight's repeat theme -- Tapas 2: Electric Boogaloo... it's -- ah, just google it already ;)
Liz made the puff pastry in the morning and the layers came out very delicate and flaky -- they sort of reminded me of spanish gyoza's...
As for the cake, well, the cake came about because our kids are in their obsessing-about-cake phase and we're indulgent parents ;)
