Happy Meatless Monday!! I'm going to re-publish this recipe from back in 2009 because I have no new recipes to share with you, but also because we just made this the other night and it's just sooooo good!!
I was really worried moving to another state that I wouldn't be able to find some of the ingredients that I love cooking with. Ingredients that are easily found at Whole Foods or Trader Joes. We have neither of those stores....bummer. But I did stumble across a co-op grocery store in Pensacola called Ever'man.....I'm sooo thankful I did!! It's awesome! They have tons of bulk items like grains and oats, bulk coffee that is organic and fair trade, bulk greens, even bulk maple syrup and honey....just bring your own container. Nice!
I almost jumped up and down in the isle, though, when I found my favorite tofu I love for this recipe; Soy Boy. They only carry it in the "Tofu Lin" flavor, but it suited this recipe just fine.
I happen to like tofu, but if you're a little turned off, this is the recipe to start with! I've been cooking a couple tofu recipes for years. I would do a pan glazed tofu in Hoisin OR Sweet and Sour tofu in the crockpot. But, then my sister turned me on to this recipe on 101 Cookbooks:
This is a delicious one-pan meal that is super easy.
The first time I made it, I used plain extra-firm tofu, which I pressed and drained. But, a couple of times now I've opted to use a marinated tofu from Soy Boy (which I've only found in Whole Foods). I made it with the Caribbean tofu and also a Smoked tofu. No matter how I've made it, it's delicious. If you use a marinaded tofu, you don't have to press it.....so it's a little easier.
You'll find other recipes and blogs dedicated to the cause at Meatless Monday.
