Vegan Mofo Day 16: Stufado to the Pesto to the Asparagus

with 2 comments


See a continued theme from a couple of days ago? Cooking for one person, whatever I make I usually have leftovers, and then make something else to use up the leftovers, and then have leftovers of the thing I made to jazz up the leftovers. A chain reaction of cooking, if you will. Below, we have the Stufado, or Basic Italian Stew, from Nonna’s Italian Kitchen. This dish is itself made from leftover reconstituted soy chunks I had in my freezer from the day I made Scaloppine Alla Marsala! Anyways, a delicious “brown-tasting” stew, if you know what I mean. Umami up the wazoo. Calls for parsley, which leaves a 3/4 bunch of parsley in the keeper…


Which calls for parsley pesto to jazz up the leftover stew! I also used some of the parsley pesto in some vegan mayo I whizzed up to take along to Breakfast Club (yeah, this entry is one of those “waiting in the wings” ones, I have to admit. So much cooking recently, so much backlog!) But I had lots of pesto…


So I spread it over some asparagus fresh from the Hamilton Farmer’s Market and broiled it for lunch!
