>Some new foods. and maybe a recipe

>I love summer fruit.

I also love to taste the plethora of melons available in my area. Last week, I tried a melon that seemed to just be called Orange Flesh. It was good. Like a sweeter cantaloupe. I’m not a huge cantaloupe fan, so I wasn’t super excited about it – good, but don’t go on a hunt for it.

This week, I got a Golden Dewlicious. It was kind of boring. Until I tossed it into a blender and made a frothy Dewlicious drink. Its sweet and mild – I recommend it.

Now, today’s lunch. Its really simple, and I can’t even call it a recipe. It was just a sandwich. But, it was one of the best damn sandwiches I’ve had in a very long while.

Tofu
Nutritional Yeast
Salt
Pepper
1 very fresh tomato
mustard
veganaise
bread

Easy enough?

You wanna bake the tofu – I usually press it, then slice it into thin(ish) strips – in whatever direction you choose. Today, I made four thin slices (keeping them a very large rectangle)

cover a baking sheet with some tinfoil. Spray some Pam on the tinfoil. Place Tofu on tinfoil. Sprinkle salt, nooch, and pepper on tofu.

Bake at 350 for 15 minutes. Flip. Bake 15 more minutes.

On bread, spread veganaise and mustard (I used spicy brown). Pile high with tomato. Add baked tofu. Eat.

This would be fantastic with a plethora of other veggies/fruits, but I like to keep it simple. Really, it needs only the tofu and the tomato. In fact, I ended up eating a slice of the tofu, sans bread, topped with tomato and I was in heaven.

  1. >The co-op I used to go to had a similar recipe that they called "magic tofu," probably b/c it was so delicious. And for some reason if you do it right, it tastes like chicken nuggets.

  2. >yum! I never thought of it as chicken nugget-y. I may have to make it into nuggets next time I do it.
