A belated thanks to Rena, Craig’s friend (and now my friend) from Seattle who stayed with us a few weeks ago and made us a delicious dinner of Otsu from Deborah Madison’s Vegetarian Cooking For Everyone. I made Heidi Swanson’s Otsu last May (click here) and really enjoyed my first Otsu experience. Deborah Madison’s otsu is sweeter than Heidi’s and also features black sesame seeds, a more racially sensitive choice than Heidi’s. Rena also made us a terrific salad with avocado, orange segments and carrots.
Rena can probably tell you how she made it in the comments. (Hey Rena, are you there? TELL US!) So thanks to Rena for a lovely dinner–you can cook for us anytime.
