Where has she been..?!
Well that’s a great question friends, and so sorry for bailing on ya’ll for the start of this week…
But unfortunately, I’ve been a bit under the weather 😦
And as such, the eats around here have consisted of gourmet items such as chicken soup, ice cream, cereal?… you know, the typical “sick foods” 😉
But before things took a turn for the worse, I did have a chance to whip up a decent meal using a fun new kitchen gadget I won a few weeks back from my girl Erica!
I present to you: the Tofu Press
This thing is a dream in the kitchen, I couldn’t believe how much easier it made my tofu cooking experience!
And if you’ve ever cooked with tofu before, perhaps you can relate to the “2 plate pressing method” I may or may not be referring to 😉
Check out how much liquid this sucker pressed out in just a half hour’s time in the fridge!
Then I used the same container to marinate the ‘fu — it comes with a perfect lil’ lid for doing so.
I simply cubed the pressed tofu and let marinate in the following mixture:
- 1 tblsp coconut oil
- 2 tblsp soy sauce
- 1 tsp grated ginger
This is a recipe “theme” that I use often on tofu, but tweak depending on my mood / what I have on hand (check out the original tofu adventure here!)
Once it had marinated for about a half hour, I simply placed it on a baking sheet and put into a 400F oven for 30 minutes – flipping halfway through.
Every time 😀
Served simply with brown rice topped w/ buttah and steamed broccoli, this was the last “normal” meal I have had in the recent past 😛
But it sure was a good one!
Now I’m out, there’s lots of sleeping & resting to be done so I can get back to work tomorrow… and perhaps some more ice cream eating since breakfast and lunch may have not been enough?! 😉
