Dinner 11/18

Alder-Smoked Grilled Tofu

Alder-Smoked Roasted Fingerling Potatoes

King Oyster Mushrooms

Mushroom Gravy

White Asparagus

Fusilli Pasta

Welcome to "beige" food night... ;)

The smoker box got quite a workout with both the Russian Fingerling Potatoes and Spring Creek Tofu getting a turn with the alder wood. The tofu was then marinated with a little tamari, salt and pepper and grilled, and the potatoes tossed with olive oil, salt, pepper and herbes de provence and roasted in the oven.

But the key to tonight's meal was the gravy -- and it all started with the King Oyster Mushrooms (again). The roux was formed from the mushrooms drippings, fond and flour -- then the addition of shallots, rosemary, veg stock and wee bit of tamari... and it tied all the food together on the plate.
