Leilani, a reader and friend has an interesting blood mix in her family: Filipino/Hungarian/Chinese/American/Syrian
To accomodate the various tastes, by necessity she must be creative. Here is one of her concoctions.
Slice a head of onion
8 or more gloves of garlic, in chunks
2 med sized tomatoes, chopped up
6-10 anchovies from a jar or can
Fresh & thin asparagus. cut up
Slice grilled tofu into strips
Extra virgin olive oil or vegetable oil
Saute the lst four ingredients, adding the anchovies when tomatoes
are nearly cooked. Add the tougher end of the asparagus to allow it
to cook sufficienty. When halfway cooked, add the top part of the vegetable. Add the tofu slices and spinach, fold in gently with the mixture. Allow spinach to wilt, keeping its bright green color...Serve up with rice or potatoes.
