Spicy Lemongrass Thai Rice

Jesse requested a rice recipe last weekend. He is away for a few weeks this summer working on his masters and has been subject to bad college cafeteria food; I told him when he came back to visit I would make him whatever he wanted. Apparently the dining hall doesn’t have any “fresh food” or “vegetarian options” and “all their salad dressings are nasty.” Lucky for him I made a ton of food as usual and sent him back with leftovers!

Tofu Satay with Peanut Sauce and Pickled Vegetables

We’ve been wanting to make this FOREVER and I finally got the stuff together to do it the other day. It’s a great complete meal but it’s not an authentic Southeast-Asian satay seeing as how we didn’t grill it or even use skewers. We did marinade the tofu in a pretty typical marinade and serve with the sauces and accompaniments you would see in a Thai restaurant. This makes plenty of food and the prep can be done ahead of time; I did the pickled vegetables the night before so they could really soak up the flavor, and you could do the same with the tofu!

Red Sauce

This is a slight variation on my mom and grandmother’s pasta sauce! It takes a while to make so start it the night before, but you’ll have plenty of leftovers that you can freeze to make meatball sandwiches, pizza, eggplant parmesan, etc.
