My parents are coming to visit soon as are some long-time friends of the family. My dad’s always a good sport about eating vegan when they visit, but he decided to have a little fun by creating a mock menu for this weekend to scare the family friends a little bit. Here’s my dad’s vision of a vegan menu. What a funny guy. :)
A delicately seasoned leek soup served with a lemon grass gently dusting its surface.
A vegetable bouillon flavored soy emulsion lightly seared in a non-dairy substitute and then boiled to perfection in a lite vegetable stock.
In addition, a mouth watering turnip, okra, brussel sprout medley seasoned and marinated in a clear vegetable broth partners with the above entree to form a light but satisfying repast.
Just when you think things couldn’t get any better, the meal is topped off with a dessert that will be long remembered:
A delicate watercress souffle topped with a drizzling of non-dairy pan drippings.
I particularly like the idea of using watercress for dessert.
