Sloppy Yoshis, Brown Rice, Root Bake, Salad

Dinner 10/14 by Juan and Amy

• Sloppy Yoshis

• Brown Rice

• Root Bake

• Salad

Tonight Juan was inspired to make a variation on sloppy joes. But since his was made from soysage which is made from okara (soybean pulp leftover from tofu making), we thought a Japanese name was more fitting. It was basically the sloppy joe sauce recipe from The New Farm Cookbook but instead of TVP, he threw in chunks of soysage (also made from that cookbook). Somewhere along the way, the soysage all broke down and though no soysage was visible, the sauce was infused with soysage flavor.

The root bake was made up of onions, garlic, potatoes, turnips, okra and a big yellow sweet potato. All of the veggies were cut into big chunks except the garlic was left whole and the okra was just cut in half. Then it was all tossed with oil, salt, pepper and rosemary and put in the oven for a few hours at 400-some odd degrees. Hard to know since our oven dial doesn't match the temperature gauge inside and I never looked inside. :)
