I had a mizuna breakthrough this week! I decided I would bring it to a gathering last night (along with other stuff) since I figured just because it's not to my taste doesn't mean other people wouldn't enjoy it. So I looked around and found a slightly different preparation than what I'd done before, and the most amazing thing happened: I LIKED IT! So no more mizuna madness for me. Woohoo! My inspiration was this recipe, except I used bottled lemon juice and veggie fish sauce (and much less of it!)

Last week's tomatoes turned into an insanely great roasted tomato sauce (DD said it was probably the best he'd ever tasted), inspiring me to get a case of tomatoes this week to make more. These are all San Marzano whereas last week's were partly those and partly orange ones, so it'll be different, but hey.

It's definitely soup weather (and soup veggies!) so my plan is to start with some celery root soup, since the one we had at True Bistro a few weeks go was so good. Of course I have no idea what was in it, but I'll see what I can do. I'm thinking I'll make a big pot of veggie stock first, though, since the last of my frozen stash just went into a Leek and Bean Cassoulet with Biscuits on Sunday.

Do you recall the name or location of this place?

Sorry, no. This was years ago (the stuff lasts a while). It was on Dot Ave. I was driving back with clients from a showing and we noticed the place when we passed (they were veeg, too) and all decided to stop and check it out.
