Veggie Stirfry with Tofu

It was a hot and cold thing going on with this lunch. I had a hot stirfry with bokchoy and leftover roasted asparagus and squash. Then I had a cold tofu that I just cut up into small cubes and pressed for a couple minutes. I seasoned both components with just teriyaki sauce and sriracha,…

Sweets and Beets Bowl

I love fall. I love root vegetables. And roasting them is the best. We went to the farmer’s market last weekend and picked up some pretty beets – golden and candy cane. I roasted them up with some sweet potato with oil, salt and pepper. Even though the pieces were kinda small, they did take…

Mexican Tortilla Lasagna

This recipe is definitely one to keep. It’s layers of tortillas with quinoa/corn/spice mixture (salt, pepper, oregano, cumin, chili powder) and veggie meat/onions/tomatoes/ peppers. There’s also a but of cheese too. Really good meal and even though it’s the same ingredients as a burrito, eating it as a “lasagna” is much nicer. Super filling and…

Tofu Fajita(ish) Bowl

I don’t know why but I love eating food in bowls instead of on plates.. anyone else feel the same? Anyways, this was the perfect meal that was made for a bowl. Dinner tonight was a quinoa based bowl with baked tofu (oil, salt, pepper, chili powder, oregano, cumin, paprika), sauteed peppers and onions, and…

Peanut Tofu Bowl with Carrots and Couscous

I just submitted my last assignment for my university undergrad so I am unofficially done school (yay!). I decided to treat myself to a nice hot lunch. I had made this awesome peanut butter sauce that I was gonna use for coleslaw the other day but that never happened so I used it today instead….

Early Cinco de Mayo Dinner

Making mexican food the day before Cinco de mayo was a great way to show my rebellious side. I was originally going to make chili cheese fries but it ended up just being a bowl of chili with some fries on the side. Now that I think about it, it ended up being pretty much…

Baked Tofu, Roasted Vegetables and Asian Coleslaw

This dinner started off my having an asian theme but then it kinda turned I guess a little american. Either way, it all tasted pretty good. For the tofu, I just cut one block into thin-ish squares and laid them on paper towel just to dry off a bit. Then I put them on a…

Crunchy Tofu

If you’re like me, you always try to make new things using the same old ingredients. So yesterday, I made these crunchy tofu sticks and they turned out fantastic. All you need to do is cut a block of FIRM tofu into sticks and press it for about 30 minutes (just put paper towel and…
