Mango-Ginger Tofu and Sesame-Ginger-Miso Dressing
I never thought I’d say this, but there is such a thing as “too much mango”. I’ll go head and admit it, the Mango-Ginger tofu from VwaV was too much mango for me. I could only handle a small helping of this stuff because it was just so overpoweringly sweet and mango-ey. There was no sugar or anything added, it was all from the mango. There’s just not a whole lot I can say about this beyond holy mango! but it was pretty, so take a look:
I did an additional twenty minutes in the oven once the mango and pepper had been added, and I stand by that decision, because everything was cooked to perfection, and not overdone. Still too much mango. I can’t seem to get past the mango…I mean, really. Great idea, but it’s just not my thing.
I don’t usually picture a simple green salad, but the dressing on this was pretty different. I got the Sesame-Ginger-Miso recipe from The Passionate Vegetarian, and used it to top a quick salad of greens, pea shoots, and mushrooms. I’m not normally into raw mushrooms, but I dressed this in advance, and the dressing actually did a great job of marinating those shrooms so they didn’t taste raw in the least.
I must admit that I also rather like the colors of the salad, wich was added reason to take a picture and post it. What can I say? Sometimes I’m a bit vain.
