Always involves sweet potato!!!!
I must have said 10 times how delicious this was as we were eating!
I baked my tofu Gliding Calm Style using the following ingredients:
1 tsp each of rice wine vinegar, tamari, sesame oil and worchestershire. Plus about 1/2 a tsp each of brown sugar and ginger and just a pinch of garlic powder, chile flakes and Seasoning From Hell (cayenne). Mixed in a bowl and slathered all over the tofu. I just created this page for your enjoyment: Tofu Tutorial.
Baked at 425* for about 40 minutes = Perfection!
I also put sweet potato fries and parsnip in the oven. They weren’t exactly crispy, but they were still a good consistency for eating. I cut a huge sweet potato into quarters and microwaved it for 2 minutes to soften it to make it easier to cut and move the cooking process along a bit. Then I cut into fries and sprinkled with 1/2 a tsp each of Seasoning From Hell, cinnamon and olive oil. The combo of spicy and sweet was awesome!! I baked them for about 30 minutes at 425* and we broiled them for the last 3 to try to get them to crisp. I think it worked a bit, but not too much. The pieces with skin on them crisped the most. Be sure to cover your pan with cooking spray so they don’t stick!
Lastly I made a Sesame Kale Salad. We took about 4 fluffy cups of cleaned and trimmed kale and steamed them in a metal collendar over some boiling water for 2-3 minutes, just until it turned bright green. Then we tossed that with a combo of sesame oil, rice wine vinegar, tamari, SFH, and a pinch of salt. And topped all of that with some toasted sesame seeds. I wish we had some left for leftovers because I bet it would have been even better tomorrow!
Even after all of that, our “Two Cooks” morning was still more hectic!
I never check my spam folder until someone alerts me that their comments are not posting. Someone did today and sure enough, there were quite a few of you regulars in there! The problem? Links. My spam filter (which gets tons and tons of jibber jabber each day) does not like it when you put your blog address in your comments. So please put it your name link and hopefully you won’t get caught in the web!
We’re done with dinner early again tonight so I’m going to relax for a bit. I can’t bring myself to do school work in the evenings quite yet. Only if I have a test! Tomorrow’s I’m already looking forward to my T/TH ritual followed by a day of really trying to study. Blarg!
