Mardi Gras: Hickory Smoked Tofu with Mustard Cream Sauce, Wilted Spinach, Red Beans and Rice, Eggplant Frites

Mardi Gras 2/05

Hickory Smoked Tofu with Mustard Cream Sauce

Red Beans and Rice

Wilted Spinach

Eggplant Frites


Bread Pudding

We've made variations on this before (recipe), this time adding the red beans and rice as the base.

We tossed a serious amount of hot sauce in with the beans and (leftover) rice which was a really good idea, as it helps contrast the cream sauce and the smokiness of the tofu and eggplant.

The eggplant frites were also smoked along with the tofu, rolled in flour/salt/pepper/smoked paprika and pan-fried in canola oil. Delish...

Dessert was a traditional bread pudding with a Jack Daniels sauce (jack, tofu, sugar, cornstarch, vanilla). And maybe a little on the side, if you know what I mean. ;)
