here i go again, eating more rabbit food. you know, if rabbits could reach the stove top. to cook a pot of brown rice. and fry some tofu.
i like my salads to have some heft to them. this one is chock full of delicious and hearty things but you still feel really virtuous after eating vast quantities of it, because it's salad. it comprises: a head of romaine lettuce, a block of cubed tofu (dry-fried in a non-stick pan), brown rice, toasted black and white sesame seeds, raisins (not pictured. but i put raisins in mine. so good), orange slices (which max spent a lot of time cutting perfectly so that ALL the pith was banished. this makes them into little explosions of pure orange-ness). and it is dressed by toasted sesame oil (1 Tbsp), soy sauce (1-2 Tbsp), and seasoned rice vinegar (2 Tbsp), a very simple dressing that i first saw in veganomicon (in the corn-edamame salad) and now use all the time.
orange and sesame are a lovely couple. the lettuce and oranges are local and organic and that makes all the difference in a simple prep like this. so tasty.
