That’s what I learned this week. The mangoes at the grocery store were looking a little funky, so I scanned the produce section for something–anything!–that I could use instead. Cantaloupe! Cantaloupe will work! Because it’s soft! Also, it’s orange!
Israeli Couscous with
Mango Cantaloupe, Cucumber & Cilantro // No, cantaloupe won’t work. At first, I thought, “Hey, this isn’t too bad!” But then I got to the last few bites and started feeling a little queasy. It’s a nice cold salad to have for lunch though, so I’m going to try it again when I can find decent mangoes.
Sweet Potato Stacks with Crispy Sage Leaves // I love sweet potatoes! I decided to make this recipe again because I have lots of sage growing in the garden.
Chili Garlic Long Beans // This is what I did with the long beans I wrote about earlier this week. I guess they made less than I thought they would, but that’s okay! They were good. I sauteed them in a little oil and added chili garlic sauce and ginger sea salt.
Beer Barbecued Tofu // Beer and tofu, together at last! After taking this photo, I decided to make sandwiches with the tofu and grilled Vidalia onions. I had to add a little extra barbecue sauce, but the sandwiches were delicious!
Spicy Sesame Eggplant // We were not crazy about this. I think it would be better with a tad less lime juice.
