King Trumpet Mushroom and Tofu Dinner Salad with Peanut Dressing
(red leaf lettuce, shredded carrot, tomato, red cabbage, tofu, king trumpet mushrooms and peanut and cilantro dressing)
Tonight was one of the
dreaded after-school child expo nights, where you wander aimlessly around starving, talking to the different teachers and you see your child's latest schoolwork/artwork/projects/slideshows.
Thankfully I fed the kids before we left, so no low-blood sugar issues there, but Liz got home just in time to change clothes and get back in the car to go to the school. I had prepped most of the food for our dinner, so when we finally returned home, this dinner salad seemed like a gift. ;)
The mushrooms were just sliced horizontally and fried up with a little olive oil and a splash of tamari at the end to "up" the umami profile.
