black-eyed pea fritter and miso soup. I got the miso soup ingredients, hon-dashi and miso paste, at an Asian grocery store recommended by my Japanese colleague. He's also the dude who found the recipe for me.
It turned out great, but I can't say the same for the fritters. You're supposed to fry them up in balls in a big ol' pot of oil. I wasted half the batter trying to use my deep fryer and a pot on the stove, but they wouldn't stay together. If you check the ingredients, there isn't enough dry stuff to hold everything together so I formed what was left into patties and baked them. The taste is good, but the recipe gets the bozack. Maybe I'm just inept.
I think I got plenty of protein from this vegetarian meal which is always a good thing. I'm not the biggest tofu fan, but I think I just need to try some more recipes.
I banged out two new recipes and am now up to 55 on my challenge. Just 45 to go.
