|Now that's a big lunch! (And I ate it all!)|
Vegan MoFo gave me the kick in the butt I needed to cook more from this cute little book. Last night I made the above meal, which I loved. It contained four components:
The tofu was wonderful! I don't know why, but I've never done the "shake 'n bake" thing which involves throwing the ingredients for the breading in a baggie, tossing in the cubed tofu, and shaking it up. It worked out so well. I did stray from the recipe just a bit by baking the tofu at 350* for 40 minutes (flipping half way through) instead of pan frying it. The result was crispy-on-the-outside, soft-on-the-inside, peppery goodness.
This was pretty straight forward- just green beans, carrots, and onion.
Again, pretty straight forward.
Deeeelicious! Again, I sort of strayed from the recipe. Instead of using the exact dry ingredients listed in the recipe, I just threw in what was leftover in the baggie from the tofu. This was a really, really good gravy. There was almost this mustard taste, but there was no mustard in the recipe! (Please excuse the 'gloppiness' in the photo- these were my reheated leftovers, which I was too lazy to heat separately.)
Also, I wanted to extend a big thank you to the lovely folks that honored me with a Liebster Award last month. I'm going to be playing catchup in the weeks (months?) to come and will be sure to post links to some "under 200" blogs that I love.
Thank you so much:
