Okra and Tomatoes with Hoecakes
Tofu wrapped in Spicy Grilled Eggplants
We mixed the hoecakes (1 cup water, 1 1/4 cup fine cornmeal, salt to taste, let sit for 5 minutes before cooking in a cast-iron skillet with a little oil), so we broke out the cast iron...
The tofu/eggplant combo was sort of decided at the last moment after I had finished grilling the eggplant (Japanese eggplant, olive oil, salt, pepper, smoked paprika) and decided the spicy/pseudo-blackened tofu (tamari, smoked paprika, cayenne) looked naked... but now I'm not sure if the eggplant looks too much like bacon to be disturbing. ;)
