$37.53 at HEB
Here are the eggplants, sliced and ready to roast. We get soooo many from our CSA that baba ganoush is a great solution for using them all up. These roasted for about 25 minutes before I scraped the meat out of the skin and put it in the cuisenart. I put about a cup of raw tahini, 5 cloves of garlic, juice of one lime (we are out of lemon), olive oil and salt.
Tomatoes, Yellow Squash, Green Zucchini going into a 400 F oven to roast for about an hour.
Lee! funnels the batter and Grace watches.
Grace makes the funnel cakes sweet with powdered sugar.
The entire spread.
Our inspiration for this dinner was carnival food since it is just about the time for the state fair. We thought long and hard about making Fried Vegan Twinkies but time did not permit. We cut up about two cartons of strawberries and cooked them in Turbinado. We drizzled the strawberry sauce over the funnel cake.
