Well, here we go to two great recipes that I learned from my husband and from his mother.
This peppered pumpkin is one the my husband's favorite way of eating pumpkin. I've never seen pumpkin prepared this way until he cooked it, and I instantly fell in love as much as I fell for him. Uhm... maybe I'd choose the pumpkin. *evil laugh*
I've heard about tofu burgers before but my first time to cook it was after I actually watched my mother-in-law prepare her own version. Which was also her first time. It was good and I loved it but it was quite thick (about an inch) so the non-vegs in the house didn't appreciate it as much as I did.
Then the next day, before lunchtime, I was looking for it. And found out that my sister-in-law ate all the remaining 3 and a half burgers while drinking non-alcoholic beer the previous midnight.
So I guess this dish passed with flying colors! ^_^
For the peppered pumpkin, I'd like to mention a very important comment from my husband: sweet pumpkins work wonders in this recipe.
A vegetarian for 12 years and a kitchen warrior since I moved in to Japan, my favorite battle has been winning over my husband's interestingly complicated taste buds.
