Scribbles and Scrambles ~ Avocado Ahhhh


Last night we had Tempeh (fermented tofu)...so so. I marinated and served it in chunks. Not very appetizing picture, word or otherwise, I know. You'd think it would be overpowering tastewise with the whole fermented part of the process...but it's not. Very, very bland. Next time I will stick to it as a ground hamburger or crumbled meat substitute, especially with plenty of seasoning, because it worked pretty fabulously for both of those uses.

But. We had the best avocado dressing. 24 found a recipe for a kale salad that had sliced beets and walnuts. An...interesting texture-rich taste sensation...but the modified dressing was amazing.

Avocado Dressing.

1 avocado spooned into a bowl.
2 tsps of spicy brown mustard
2 TBSP apple cider vinegar (or lemon juice)
3 TBSP walnut or olive oil
Mash and blend. We left chunks. It's thick and would make a delicious dressing for a taco salad....especially if you changed the lemon juice to lime and chopped up some cilantro and tossed in peppers/onions. Oh, that's guacamole. Never mind.

Today will be a farm visit. Report to follow.
