“Steakhouse” Dinner

Playing with the idea of a “steakhouse” dinner with the bounty from Chinatown, we made some mashed Japanese sweet potatoes, smoked tofu “steaks” and a side of greens (in this case, not spinach, but bok choy).  Delicious!  Japanese sweet potatoes are definitely sweeter than the usual yams and almost taste like chestnuts.  I’m very excited to try using them in a sweet potato pie for Thanksgiving.

    I am in The Woodlands, TX. We have a great market down the street called Hubble and Hudson. I know the owner so I thought I’d give it a shot and ask him to carry it. They already have loads of vegetarian items..just no smoked tofu. We’ll see! 😉
