i have a yummy dinner for you pears out there. i’m a pescatarian, meaning i don’t eat meat except for seafood, dairy and eggs. it’s not for an animal rights thing – i just don’t like the taste. plus, it’s more environmental friendly to not eat as much meat. do you even know the carbon footprint of meat processing plants? gah!
so, long story short – i eat a lot of tofu. which is really yummy, i promise. even the boy likes it! of course, he eats meat though and will be making commentaries on this blog about his side of our meals.
moving on, this is what you need for the magic to happen.
first, soak the tofu on a folded paper towel for about 10-20 minutes to soak up excess water. to make the sauce, add sesame oil, sesame seeds, light soy sauce, green onions, red chili flakes and garlic powder in a small bowl. mix well.
we also made healthy brown fried rice, but failed to take a picture. do not fret, twas’ good and will be made again soon.
2 tsp sesame oil
2 tsp red chili flakes
1 tsp sesame seeds
2 T light soy sauce
1 green onion
1 package noodles
1/2 cup carrots
1/2 cup green onions
1/2 cup mushrooms
1 can of baby corn
extra-firm tofu – 1 pack
1 pack steam veggies of choice ( i used snap peas and broccoli)
probably serves 4-6 people, but with the way the boy and i eat, we were fine with just us!
p.s. my post-half marathon race recap is coming soon! so much to tell you little pears!
