Vegetarian Indian Curry Tofu Pot Pie Recipe

A pot pie is a medley of vegetables and meat in a thick sauce, wrapped in a pie crust. I love chicken pot pie. Unfortunately, I can never share this meal with my hubby Lulu since he's a vegetarian. I always try to adapt what i eat to Lulu's dietary restrictions. Today, I tested a fusion pot pie based on the sauce from my Ma-Po tofu recipe and a curry sauce. I added fried tofu for the protein, and included shitake mushrooms with the vegetables that traditionally go into this English dish.

Of course, if you love meat like me, you could substitute cooked chicken for the tofu.

Savory Goat Cheese Panna Cotta with Beluga Lentil Relish (Panna Cotta au Chevre et sa Macedoine de Legumes) Recipe

Panna cotta de chèvre frais et sa macédoine de légumes is a summery dish. It was such a sunny day today in the Bay Area, so I decided to make something refreshing and light.

In case you don't know, panna cotta is a firm jelly. It can be either be savory or sweet. Instead of using gelatin, I used agar for the vegetarians in the house. I paired the panna cottas with mixed vegetables and lentils to get a balanced meal with proteins, dairy and veggies.  

I served them in little verrines. Verrine is just a fancy word for glasses but they are the latest trend in French cooking. If you host a buffet-style dinner, it's the ideal way to run a stress free party as this dish can be prepared in advance.

Creamy Gorgonzola Ranch Salad Dressing Recipe

I had some gorgonzola left over from the cheese soufflé I made yesterday, so I decided to make a salad dressing out of it. Instead of going for the obvious choice of making a bleu cheese dressing with the gorgonzola, I opted to make a ranch dressing. Ranch salad dressing is a blend of mayonnaise, sour cream, buttermilk and spices. Traditional mayonnaise calls for egg yolks but my 9-year-old- sister-in-law is deathly allergic to eggs so I substitute it with homemade vegenaise made with silken tofu.

This flavorful salad dressing meets everyone's diet restrictions in my home while still being delicious. I hope you will enjoy it as well.

Gorgonzola Cheese Souffle Recipe

Gorgonzola Cheese Souffle

04.04.09 by Jackie

A cheese soufflé is basically a roux folded with egg whites. A roux is a combination of cooked butter, flour and milk. It's the same preparation used for making a bechamel sauce in the Le Mac and cheese recipe. The addition of the gorgonzola cheese is a way for me to cover the "egg-y" smell for the vegetarians in my house.

Gorgonzola cheese soufflés are a perfect meal served with an arugula salad. It's a healthy way to have a light lunch and finish with a much heavier dessert. Fancy some tiramisu parfait afterwards?
