My little brother had so much success with his first attempt at cooking -- risotto and carrot soup -- that he wants to try again this weekend. Again, a dinner party to please a girl. Not the girl the first dinner party was aimed at, not the other girl he wound up kissing that night, but a third girl.
He wants Asian. Easy, right?
Well, there's a catch. She's vegan with wheat and soy allergies. Beyond summer rolls wrapped in rice paper, I'm stumped. Taking miso, soy, tofu, meat, fish out of play sorely limits my normally abundant Asian playbook. Ideas?
(He must REALLY like her, because he's somewhat obsessive about his carnivorism.)
