Weekly Food: Samosa Filling and Mango Ginger Tofu Sandwiches
This week we’re eating two recipes from Isa Chandra Moskowitz’s Vegan With A Vengeance, plus some extras.
Meal number one is my all-time favorite food ever: samosa filling. The recipe is actually for samosas, but after making them a couple of times I figured why bother with cutting out dough when I can just skip to the best part? I feel similarly about pie crusts/filling although I’m beginning to appreciate crusts more as I age get better at making them. Served with rice and kale mostly because I felt a little guilty about calling a bowl full of potatoes a complete meal.
Second up is mango ginger tofu. You can find the recipe for this over at the Post Punk Kitchen.
The marinade took some extra time, and doesn’t have quite the flavor I’d expected (it lacks the salty flavor I like in a baked tofu), but paired with some simple cabbage slaw (cabbage + oil, vinegar, lemon, salt, & pepper), and delicious bread from the New French Bakery, it makes a very good and filling sandwich.
Time: 2 hours plus 40 minutes in the morning to prepare tofu marinade
