Summer time means grilling. If you’ve gone the veggie or pescatarian route, your plate may be a little empty in the coming months. Fear not, quinoa burgers have all the height and taste of the meaty alternate.
Sunday Supper: I Cooked Tofu (and I Liked It)
Six months into my pescatarian adventure, I have ranged further afield than salmon and quinoa, with mackerel on my horizon. You know you’re off meat for good when you experiment with tofu. That much maligned substance was where I set my sights for this one pot stir fry meal. In a tempura like coating, I found I liked the texture of tofu among the other flavors.
I had two boxes of tofu to work with; the first was milky white and the second grey and stringy. I dumped the grey and worked with the fresher material. Make sure you get the firmest kind available fi you’re going to fry it up.
Have you ever tried tofu? What was your latest ingredient adventure? What about the Keto diet?
Sunday Supper: Squid Stirfry
I’ve been a vegetarian for 5 months. Haven’t missed meat much but I do need to branch out from salmon. That’s why squid was a delightful departure from the regular fish menu. Though it left a lingering smell in my car, the stir fry (and later calamari) were worth it.
