Lettuce Wraps With Hoisin Mustard Tofu, Unfried Fried Rice, 5 Spice Butternut Squash

Dinner 9/29

Lettuce Wraps With Hoisin Mustard Tofu

Unfried Fried Rice

5 Spice Butternut Squash

We picked up some beautiful lettuce from Farmer Jones over the weekend, so that meant the wraps (which were supposed to use iceberg) are not a true representation of the test recipe from Isa. Not being a big fan of iceberg (having lived through the 70's), it might have actually been better. ;)

While we were busy substituting with the lettuce, we also tested the baked squash dish, which was supposed to be a delicata. Lacking that, we went with the back-up butternut squash, with the always aromatic Chinese Five-Spice Powder which paired nicely with the hoisin/mustard tofu.

Surprisingly, we did manage to make the tofu and fried rice dish according to the recipe...

These are test recipes for Isa Chandra Moskowitz's next cookbook. As part of the testing agreement, we can't give out the recipe.
