Manresa Bread Project

14501111646 21b7c946c5 o Manresa Bread Project

Is it bad to eat nothing but bread for lunch? And for dinner too? This is what happens when you get a loaf of bread from Manresa, a Michelin two-star restaurant in Los Gatos, California.

Dubbed the Manresa Bread Project, they’ve been selling their restaurant bread at the Campbell farmer’s market. And they recently opened up a booth at the California Avenue Palo Alto farmer’s market. I’ve seen the long lines and thought “What’s that all about?” But loaded down with fruit and veggies for the week, I had no desire to wait in line to find out.

Teriyaki Roasted Tofu

14269952297 2eff560500 o Teriyaki Roasted Tofu

Roasting is still my favorite way to prepare tofu. It’s super easy and relatively quick as there’s no need to press the tofu before using it. I’ve already combined it with buffalo sauce, pesto sauce and black bean sauce. Today, it’s teriyaki.

Before doing anything else, get the rice going in the rice cooker (if serving with rice and if you have a rice cooker otherwise ignore this part). While the rice is cooking, prep the tofu for the oven.

Voodoo Van

While there’s been an increase in the number of food trucks near me, I haven’t seen all that many with good vegan options. Some have nothing at all, some are so close with a vegetarian option but it might as well be nothing.

Then there’s Voodoo Van with their Mister Sister vegan seitan sandwich – spicy sweet jerk marinated seitan topped with red onions. It’s tangy, meaty and filling, I washed it all down with a cucumber soda.

Relax, Isa Does It

I’ll been eating well lately. Really well. Yup, I’ve been living the good life trying out recipes from Isa Chandra Moskowitz’s latest cookbook, Isa Does It. Everything I’ve made so far has been either super easy or easy enough and delectable.

Starting with the first meal of the day, Muffin Pan Mini Omelets (page 247), served with giant strawberries and homestyle potatoes. Aren’t those the cutest little tofu omelets?
