Tofu

Spiced Tofu and Carrots

Sometimes I just can't. I've worked a full day retouching images in the dark. The bus was way too packed, which made an odd odor. And I forgot to eat breakfast, so I had an early lunch and now I'm starving for dinner. I think about takeout, or a burger. Or better yet! Order a pizza because I can use the app so I don't actually have to talk to someone. 

Then my stomach reminds me that I need to put that phone down and march into the kitchen, because she feels queasy every time I go down this road. After a quick argument I agree - she's always right - and look for something quick and easy. That's usually when I use lots of spices, put everything on one tray, and pop the food in the oven so there's the least amount of fuss possible.

And we have now concluded what the dickens you should do with tofu. But no need to fret over the end of this series! I enjoy putting tofu into a lot of what the hubby and I eat, so you'll be seeing this ingredient often. I promise to do it justice.

We've marinated and barbequed, fried them into nuggets and now we will be baking tofu. Out of all three ways, baking the tofu is the easiest with the most texture change. She might've gotten a new outfit, but her delicious soul is still the same.

Tofu Nuggets with Chipotle Mayo Dip

And here we are again. Talking about tofu. Prepare to have your taste buds blown.

My vegetarian husband and I have tasted our fair share of fake meats. It's not that the item has to taste like meat, but I thought it actually tasting like food shouldn't be too much to ask for. Apparently, that can be a tall order to fill. Here come the "fake chicken nuggets, with no chicken, that still taste dern good!".

Grilled Tofu with Soy Sauce and Lime Marinade

That's right. Part one means there will be a second and third way I show you how to make tofu into something delicious, that proudly can be served as a main dish.

My husband has been a vegetarian for many years now. This is after I decided we were going on a whole foods cleanse with advice from the Oprah show, and he realized his body was meant to be vegetarian, and I realized my body needed Korean Short Ribs STAT.

I grew up eating tofu, but never thought about making it a main dish. In desperation to make something for the vegetarian hubby other than a salad, I starting experimenting with different options. This is perfect for a summer barbeque where hot dogs are usually king.
