Tofu for Almodovar
Deep-Fried Baby Artichokes
(from Jamie Oliver -- celeriac, capers, cornichon pickles, veganaise, vinegar, olive oil, salt and pepper)
yes, a it's an adaptation of a Rachael Ray dish -- sub out for the tofu, soy margarine, and veg stock one-to-one, otherwise it's the same -- and yes, we make fun of her just like everyone else (i.e. evoo, the giggle), but this is a good quick dish. Usually we break this one out when there's a new Almodovar DVD out, but there's been nothing new since "Bad Education"...
The deep-fried baby artichokes were a bit of a revelation -- we weren't expecting much, but they really were crunchy, crispy and tasty... sort of like potato skins.
