Main Dishes for Mom

These main dishes include two brunch staples usually made with eggs: frittata and Strata. Both feature magical tofu and an array of flavors to make even strict omnivores to fall in love with the wonder of soy. These take a bit of time to prep, but can be made a day ahead. The Chicken Salad and tuna salad are great light dip or sandwich items that are perfect for this time of year. And polenta, heck, that’s ALWAYS a winner.
