Tofustix *

(zucchini, tomato, onion, garlic, salt, pepper

Farmer's Market Score! A whole case of squash blossoms for a relatively inexpensive price. Now the quandary, what to do with them in the next 36 hours?

First up, our standby of stuffing them -- this time with a slightly different filling, including roasted corn. It was so incredible that it may become a permanent fixture.

As for tomorrow? hmmm... we'll see.

* OK, I just made that up -- Tofu Fingers or Tofu Frites were the other options... ;)

A little experiment involving tofu strips marinated with tamari and pepper, rolled in flour seasoned with smoked paprika, a cornstarch slurry, and finally breadcrumbs with a little nutritional yeast. Served with a vegenaise and smoked pepper dipping sauce.

Liz made a couple of ciabatta loaves, so we made a quick bruschetta, trying however in vain, of using up some of the basil from the garden.
