What's your Templefood?

porceluna | Mar 18, 2008 08:08 PM

I think Nigella's idea of Templefood really encapsulates what we all need sometimes: that dish that soothes both the body and the spirit when we've overindulged and are perhaps a bit down. At this time of year, when it's too late for heavy soups but too early for a nice crunchy salad, I turn to Asian-inspired dishes. Tonight I made a tofu-shiitake soup with cellophane noodles and a ginger-garlic-five spice broth. (The exact recipe is at my blog if you're interested). It was satisfying and comforting, but not overwhelming, just what I think Templefood should be.

What is your templefood for those low and overfed times?
