Let me preface by saying I absolutely hate podcasts- I listen to audiobooks when I drive on my hour long commute home but today I did not time my books correctly and was left without one- hating the same songs over and over on the radio (except 7 rings- that one can be on repeat all day) I plugged my phone in and headed to the apple podcast app and found “over my dead body”by wondery in top played- I am HOOKED… so much I couldn’t stop when I got home and I blew through all 3 episodes when I was cooking and boy did that go fast. Todays ingredient of the day is tofu- and I will mention I don’t (well at this point it was “thought” I didnt) like tofu but the recipes I found today changed my mind.
Browsing through Pinterest I found a scrambled tofu with brown rice, turmeric, and replaced the soy/ maple/ chili garlic sauce with coconut aminos/ maple/ chili garlic and honestly I was so surprised how good the tofu was with the spices and nutritional yeast and then with the rice and veggies. I can cook almost anything… besides rice- I absolutely suck at it so I just use the precooked frozen packs from trader joes if I don’t feel like doing it in my instant pot. I just forgot about the carrots but you can add any veggies you like!
I found another recipe for fried tofu with jerk seasoning, baked broccolini and pineapple salsa. I couldn’t find jerk and amazon wouldn’t one day ship and trader joes is out of jerk chicken skewers until late spring- I just opted for pre-marinaded teriyaki tofu and sliced it up, threw on pan, broccolini in oven but it was weird with pineapple salsa and I was just trying to get rid of things from my freezer and pantry and took out TJ madras lentils and malabar paratha bread (omg I am OBSESSED with this bread).so theres that- quite an odd combo but the tofu and broccolini just seemed so sad by themselves. Any thoughts where to get a good jerk chicken seasoning?
Finally threw together “taco” salads with rice, black beans, tomatoes, corn, and green goddess salad dressing (on the side) my avocados aren’t ripe enough so will add that in during the week.
