Sister Visits & Souen Suppers

My sister came to visit me this weekend.

I had to work yesterday, but after work we all convened downtown (me, Julia, and Bobby) near Bobby’s office to get something for dinner. Bobby suggested Souen, and who am I to disagree! Julia also enjoys Souen though she says it’s a little bland sometimes 😉

So let’s see, what did we get…

Julia ordered the cornbread with a side of miso-tahini spread. (But we all shared it.)


I got Squash Tofu – my absolute favorite dish at Souen. (My other favorite is the macro plate.) Squash Tofu is a sauteed mix of fresh vegetables – broccoli, napa cabbage, onions, soft/medium tofu, carrots, kabocha squash, and probably more that I am forgetting. The sauce is of the miso/tahini variety (a common theme at Souen).

Julia opted for the Inspired Vegetable Curry – a delicious mix of broccoli, carrots, squash (kabocha), cauliflower, mushrooms, and more + a savory Indian spice-inspired sauce.

And last but certainly not least, Bobby got Souen’s Stir-Fried Noodles with soba noodles as his entree. Tons of veggies including lotus root and snap peas, topped with some seaweed flakes. It’s in a mushroomy-gingery sauce.

After dinner I got a macrobiotic scone. Here a recipe for macrobiotic scones that I have been meaning to resurrect – it’s from 2009. And I found this Eden Foods recipe for Cranberry Walnut macro scones too.

Do you like macrobiotic food? Which dish would you pick at Souen? Do you like math?

  1. You and CD both majored in math and economics. So, apparently, I’m into nerds, b/c I love you both. 🙂 I also love me some macrobiotic food, and I WILL eat at Souen someday!

    So cool about Julia. A wolf sanctuary out in Colorado?!? Hope you get to visit!

  2. I hope you have enjoyed a wonderful time with your sister!

    The food looks wonderful, and what makes me like the place immediately is that they serve *reasonable* amounts of vegetables! 😀 I’d take the squash dish if it was with fish, for sure!

    Macrobiotics fascinates me, although the grain-heavy version doesn’t work for me, and also the soy. But I very much like the idea of a nutritious, mostly vegan diet with fish and Japanese-inspired flavors.
