We (a handful of people of different divisions) made different kinds of typical noodle and potatoe salads and heated up about 140 bigger Wiener sausages in a huge electric soup pot.
I made a potatoe salad (with lots of roasted vegetables and sour cream dressing) and also prepared a plate of fake meatballs for collegues with "no meat pelase" attitudes. I served some home made sweet chilli sauce too. So happy they ate up and not one fake meatball was left! Some even asked for the recipes.
Those fake meatballs are basicly made from part steamed millet and part tofu.
- 1 cup millet
- 2 cups water
- pinch salt
- 340 g firm tofu, cut into cubes
- 1 tablespoon flour
- 1 tablespoon red miso
- 1 tablespoon mushroom sauce (thick chinese soysauce)
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce
- 1 teaspoon sesame oil
- salt to taste
- 1 big egg
- 1 minced onion
- chilli flakes
- black pepper
I purred the lot with an immersion blender until I got a slightly coarse paste. Afterwards I added 1 finly sliced and chopped spring onion, mixed it in and formed small balls. I deep fried the balls (which I flatted a bit into a perfect hamburger shape) in oil about 3 minutes on each side until golden. Flipping the balls is not that easy - they are soft and may break quickly so I took two spoons to support the flipping. After cooling down on kitchen paper the "no meatballs" will become much firmer.
