Excellent and Quick Meatless Monday Option for dinner tonight!
I am not quite sure what makes me crave caramel this time of year. Perhaps it is because fall was always caramel apple season when I was growing up.
In addition to making a lot of pumpkin recipes leading up to Thanksgiving, I also find myself experimenting with caramelizing.
If you are not a fan of eggplant, you can always substitute zucchini or broccoli rabe.
I love Chinese cuisine and have been experimenting with using tofu instead of animal products in some traditional dishes. This recipe was inspired by the lettuce wraps from PF Changs but I added my own touch and ingredients that vary from the original. Plus, this dish serves as a main entree rather than an appetizer.
The taste is tangy, a little bit sweet with undertones of spicy goodness.
I really love experimenting with a variety of unusual ingredient combinations! Sometimes my trials work out and sometimes they do not!
I created this dish based on items I needed to use up before they expired and the outcome was delightful!
This recipe makes enough to serve 8 people and goes great with a side salad.
