Garlic Tofu and Yellow SquashPosted: August 28, 2010
Thank you all for the best wishes at my new job. I’m terribly excited!!!
Dinner in ten minutes? Yes please. Don’t even play with me and suggest McDonalds.
1 sauteed yellow squash + 1/3 block extra firm tofu (crumbled and lightly browned in olive oil) + 1 tablespoon minced garlic + salt and pepper = a fabulous one pan/one dish meal…
Which leaves more time for the fun stuff!
Like reading cookbooks. Duh.
I recently bought this copy of Healthy Cooking for Two (Or Just You) and have been perusing it for the past several days, dreaming of culinary endeavors galore. The book boasts an incredible variety of recipes for almost any palette. While it’s not vegetarian, a majority of the dishes are meatless (or easily adaptable), and nothing is horribly complicated. The wide range of influences (from Southern to Spanish to Greek) in the book makes it a versatile resource that I’m dying to dig into. It also has an herb primer and some practical kitchen tips in the beginning (as well as spattered throughout) that are perfect for a burgeoning beginner like myself.
Standout recipes include…
- Couscous with Sweet Potatoes and Yellow Squash
- Essau’s Pottage
- Hong Kong Primavera with Spicy Peanut Sauce
- Skillet Casserole of Bulgar & Crimini Mushrooms
- Asparagus in Orange Sauce
- Strawberry Bleeding Hearts
I seriously would be happy to eat my way through this book. Maybe I will. Or maybe I’ll go head to Sweet Tomatoes for lunch with the fam and eat my weight in soup and salad. Either way sounds like a deal to me.
