What are your favorite foods? Seriously--when all is said and done, what will you make for yourself and know that NO RESTAURANT will ever make this dish as well as you? We were on a sandwich kick this weekend--here are our favorites.
BBQ Tempeh and Slaw sandwich
Not that I've actually seen this advertised at restaurants, but this is one of my favorite go-to sandwiches. I don't remember what book I scrawled the tempeh recipe out of--so I don't think I should post the exact recipe. Basically, it's a mix of oil, soy sauce, maple syrup, cumin, and garlic. Marinate for a few hours to overnight, and bake at 350 for 30 minutes. I bake it right in the marinade. These little tempeh nuggets are great on salad or in sandwiches.
I make somewhat of an Asian coleslaw mix--still your basic mayo, honey and vinegar (I use rice vinegar) but add some ginger, sesame oil and sesame seeds to the mix. Yum!
Tavo also leaned towards cabbage this weekend, but he chose the fermented type. A Reuben, with so many substitutions that I'm not sure if it can even be called a reuben anymore.
Ham Reuben with Havarti on Wheat -- blasphemy or delicious?
Tavo declared it delicious.
Pizza is another one that I make very well--but I love it so much I will try it from pretty much any reputable pizza spot. This pic is obviously homemade, though ;)
So--what dish do you make better than the restaurant?
