Spicy Rice

2 Aug

Hello there,

spicyrice

here’s an easy-peasy recipe for rice with veggies and tofu, seasoned with our very favorite condiments: chili paste and soy sauce. This is a nice weeknight dinner, leftovers to be eaten the next day for lunch, stretched with some peas, nuts, or whatever.
Here we go:

Ingredients:
serves 3-4

1 1/2 cups rice
3 cups water
1/4 tsp. salt

2 bell peppers, sliced
1 onion, sliced
1 garlic clove, minced
approx. 14 oz. tofu, cut into cubes (I used store-bought, smoked tofu here; otherwise, use plain tofu that has been marinated)

vegetable oil
approx. 1/2 tsp. green chili paste (store-bought)
approx. 2 tbsps. soy sauce

Directions:

This is super-easy. In a pot, combine rice, water, and salt. Bring to a boil and let bubble over medium heat until the water has been absorbed and the rice is tender.

In a large pan, fry the veggies and the tofu cubes in vegetable oil.

In a large bowl, mix veggies and rice. Season with chili paste and soy sauce. Stir well. Enjoy!

Eat well, my friends. Later! xoxo,
F.

Tofu Soup

3 Jul

Hello you guys,

CIMG1213

I haven’t blogged in a while, mainly because it is so hot and we don’t cook much. Last night, however, I was able to throw together a little more than just a salad – I say a little more, because it really isn’t much of a recipe. But it was good, easy summer food, so I though I’d share it here!
We didn’t have any veggies on hand, but I’m sure carrot slices, mushrooms or maybe cabbage stripes would be great in this soup. I bougtht the tofu smoked and didn’t do anything else with it, but plain tofu that has been marinated for a couple of hours in your marinade of choice would certainly work as well. Here we go:

Ingredients:
serves 3-4

7 cups water
approx. 14 oz smoked tofu, diced
veggie stock powder, soy sauce, and chili paste to taste
3 scallions, sliced
3.5 oz rice noodles

Directions:

In a pot, bring the water to a boil. Season with stock powder (approx. 1 tbsp.), stir. Add tofu and noodles. Season with chili paste (careful there! approx. 1/2 tsp.) and soy sauce (approx. 3 tbsps.). Stir carefully; remove from heat (the noodles shouldn’t need more than a minute or two of boiling). Add scallions. Serve!

Easy! And tasty. I’ll have the leftovers later for lunch.
