Gone are the days when I spent four hours in the kitchen recreating a Top Chef recipe. I spend nap time making dinner, so I still have some time to spend on cooking. But lunches have to be fast – either leftovers or something that I can do while trying to keep H & E from killing themselves or each other. It usually involves tofu. H & E love tofu. This has proven to be my most valuable kitchen tool:
My favorite tofu recipes are the basic baked tofu from Appetite for Reduction, the Italian and Asian tofu from Vegan with a Vengeance and a stir fried or baked tofu with the tahini sauce from Isa Does It. That tahini sauce is amazing and H would eat it with a spoon if I let him. But sometimes even these simple recipes have too many ingredients. And that’s when I make tofu with Bragg’s liquid Aminos. After draining your firm or extra-firm tofu, cut into bite-sized pieces and stir-fry in a wok with a little oil until lightly browned. Sprinkle with Bragg’s Liquid Aminos. So easy and yummy.
