Life In The Cave

While we were at SXSW, a good friend of our manager was kind enough to lend us his apartment and kitchen in Austin for a week. While we were there, I made many many many meals…French bread, cinnamon raisin bread, peanut butter bread, chickpea salad, onion socca, fried okra, fried plantains, hushpuppies, pancakes, corn donuts, roasted asparagus and mushrooms, among other meals, but I think my favorite meal of the week was spinach tofu curry, or “mock palak paneer” ..Cubes of firm tofu are used here instead of paneer cheese. It’s creamy texture and mild flavor make it a perfect compliment to this rich curry. Made in the punjabi style… Here is my recipe…

Decided to make some muffins! Southern style, with corn flour… And fresh strawberries from just over the border.

On the drive to San Antonio, among the 4 of us, there was an almost spontaneous and mutual expression of excitement for lentil soup. After a stop at the market for some dry lentils and a large carrot, I was prepared to make our gastronomical dreams come true.

On the way to Covington, KY, we made an overnight stop at my parents’ house in Cleveland, OH. While my mom and I hung out in the kitchen, I got busy with some rolls for the car trip ahead. My mom had a nice looking bunch spinach in the fridge, and was happy to let me use the whole bunch for the rolls. These rolls have a subtle spinach flavor, and a lovely doughy and fluffy texture. Best when served warm. Enjoy!
Makes 28 rolls
