Have you seen the cookbook challenge over at PPK? People are cooking from a different book each week. I was inspired by Sara's blog to make this delicious sandwich from Veganomican. It is the Po' Boy sandwich with chili cornmeal crusted tofu. I thought I made this tofu once before, but I don't remember liking it so much. Maybe I didn't make a sandwich with it that time? It has a nice cool slaw and chipotle mayo. I used my regular tofu marinade (equal parts tamari, nooch, EVOO, and water) to make the breading stick instead of the soymilk/cornstarch mixture in the recipe. Worked like a charm and added an extra layer of flavor! The fries are Trader Joe's frozen garlic fries - happily vegan and even the carnivore loves them!

By the way, the mystery item is a gnocchi board - for rolling the formed gnocchi on to get the little ridges. Will I ever use it or will it be relegated to the unused kitchen gadget drawer?

Way to get around not being able to think of a post title;-)

I want to try that Tofu PoBoy, but it seems more laborious than I'm used to. Maybe one day.

A 'Gnocchi Board'? Well now I can see why you just had to have it.
