if you don't eat your vegetables, it will come back to haunt you

Ever since our Hellen-Kelleresque breakthrough with the Ouija board, ghost Marley has been a lot less agitated. Communication is dial-up-modem slow, nay, clay-tablet-cuneiform slow, which is a bummer, but I prefer to focus on the positive -- Oedipus is finally learning to spell. Plus, it turns out Marley is like a monkey with a typewriter -- he's reproducing the works of Shakespeare, in the form of vegan recipes. He named this one himself:

Mock Ham(let)

1/2 lb dried bean milk sheets (aka tofu skins)
3/4 cup water
4 T soy sauce
1 T cider vinegar or wine vinegar
1 t raw cane sugar
1 T sesame oil

1. Break the sheets into small pieces.
2. Combine the water, soy sauce, vinegar and sugar in a large saucepan. Add the bean milk sheets and turn them into the sauce. Bring to the boil, then lower the heat and simmer for about 20 minutes until the sauce has been absorbed. Add the sesame oil.
3. Turn out on to a large piece of muslin and roll up the cloth into a sausage shape. Tie it up securely with lots of string. Steam it over hot water for 2 hours.
4. Remove from the heat and leave it to cool then chill it thoroughly before unwrapping and slicing it.

Unfortunately, just like any other vegan recipe, this is closer to tragedy than food.
