Gado Gado

I am addicted to this Indonesian place in my town. I don't think I'll be able to figure out the recipe for green papaya and Indonesian stink beans in a candlenut curry sauce (hell, I won't even be able to find the ingredients) but my other favorite, Gado Gado, was easy peasy lemon squeezy to make.

I took several shortcuts and came up with a recipe that takes just 10 minutes. The best thing is you can make it with just about any vegetables, so if you are exhausted and starving, you'll probably have all of the necessary ingredients around the house.

Gado Gado - a.k.a. Indonesian dish with vegetables, tofu, and a yummy peanut sauce

Looking for a Miso salad dressing recipe

Hi there,
I'm looking for a miso salad dressing recipe (couldn't find anything in the memories...)
I have a giant bag of miso - the white type, and I'd love to use some of it to make a dressing like they sometimes serve on the salad at Japanese restaurants.
If you have any other kick ass miso recipes I'd love to hear about those too!

Protein

Hi all. I just recently joined this group. I am very allergic to all dairy and am looking for vegetable protein to add to my diet. I am specifically looking for breakfast foods. I would especially like to know if there is anything I could add to my oatmeal (my favorite breakfast) to boost its protein levels. Do you have any suggestions for me?

Thanks in advance.

Chocolate goes with everything.

I'm interested in cooking savory dishes with chocolate.

I was thinking of using this recipe:

I'd like to use tofu in replacement, but do you guys think that seitan would be better?

Should I marinate the tofu in something first? Any ideas what?

I just got a fancy new camera phone, so if it turns out nicely I'll post some pictures!
