Potato-Leek Soup, Carrot Salad, Soysage & Greens

Dinner 6/30 by Rachel

  • Potato-Leek Soup

  • Cabbage & Carrot Salad

  • Steamed Greens

  • Soysage

  • Home-baked Bread
Rachel's dinner was "inspired" by several recipes in the Soul Vegetarian Cookbook. The Potato-Leek soup started there, as did the salad. Both were very tasty.

The potatoes were another delivery from our neighbors the organic farmers up the road. It's times like this I'm envious of their greenhouse. Maybe next year ours will be in place.

Every time someone makes tofu, lots of okara is left over. With a little help from The Farm's New Vegetarian Cookbook, soysage is made. It's the fake meat that I find to taste the most like the meat it's supposed to replace - great if you're a vegan who liked sausage.

The bread was one of many many awesome recipes in The Tassajara Bread Book. As far as Bobolink is concerned, it's the end-all be-all book on bread. I've heard the expression, "They should make a Tassajara Bread Book on this" used to imply that the vast complexity and variety of a food could do with a compliation.
