I agree with Benny on this one. I often make warm roasted veggie salads with a simple vinaigrette. On top of some lettuce and with a little goat or feta cheese, it's sublime. You can also do a grain salad--take wheat berries, brown rice, or even quinoa and combine with vinaigrette, feta, panfried tofu or tempeh (or chicken), some dried fruit chopped up, and you're good to go. It's delicious and filling.

If you want a warm salad, there's nothing wrong with an assortment of roasted or grilled veggies tossed in a simple vinaigrette.

In a Japanese restaurant, they call that Tempura Ice Cream. It's pretty amazing, but I won't make a habit of it.

You could make fried iceberg lettuce with a ground meat or some tofu, I flavor mine with soy sauce, fish sauce and a little sesame oil. Also warm wilted spinach salads are delicious with a couple eggs.

Baked Alaska?

Good one!Thanks Ophelia!I once saw someone do fried ice cream on TV,an ice cream scoop,coated on beaten eggs and then corn flakes,put on the freezer and deep fried.And it looked amazing!
