Valentine’s Dinner 2006

Valentine's Dinner 2006

I was much more time-efficient this year, but still just as messy as in the past. The menu:

  • Butternut squash soup, with fresh sage
  • A loaf of heart-shaped whole wheat raisin walnut bread from Amy’s
  • Mashed Jersey sweet potatoes, with garlic, paprika and crushed almonds
  • Fresh baby pea shoots, served with slices of organic tomato and a fig viniagrette
  • California olives, hand-stuffed with almonds
  • Marinated artichoke hearts
  • Shitake mushrooms, saute├ęd in three wines
  • Lightly crisped tofu with orange cranberry agave sauce

I didn’t use any recipes, but major props to What the hell does a vegan eat anyway? for inspiration. And even bigger props to the true inspiration, my wonderful wife!
