Whew! It's hard to blog during the holiday season, isn't it! I keep meaning to do it... and end up doing something else instead. But not to worry... we are still eating, and taking pictures!
Inspired by Chris & Darlene and Bazu, I decided to try making some calzones. I haven't ever made them before - even in my prevegan days. They were pretty good, but a bit dry on the inside. I sauteed up some garlic, onion, and fresh herbs. Then cuisinarted some firm tofu, lemon juice, tahini, miso, and salt... and mixed it with the onion mix. Then I chopped up a couple heads of broccoli into tiny bits, and mixed that in, as well as a handful of pinenuts. Finally I made a bit of tomato sauce (I should have made a bit more). I made 4 calzones with the crust, spread on some tomato sauce, and then glooped on a bunch of tofu-broccoli mix. I've still got one half of one left... they do make great leftovers! Thanks for the good idea Bazu and Chris!
I had some left over broccoli-tofu mix to put to use, so I mixed in a decadent little jar of tomatoes from my friend Jane's farm, along with some leftover cooked brown rice, a handful of bread crumbs, and a bunch of chopped up beet greens. Wow, these were GREAT! We've got happy bellies tonight.
Our oven is a bit on the fritz, but still managed to bake these little babies. We've got someone coming out tomorrow to give it a check-over, hopefully it will work with all the cooking I've got to do for xmas!
