Sunday Supper: Not Your Mama's Tuna Casserole

photo(1)My mother never made Tuna Casserole but in the chill of winter, a nice creamy casserole can warm you up like any curry.

I modified the idea of this standard recipe which calls for peas, cream of mushroom soup, and tuna by adding whatever I wanted cleared out from the cupboards.

This included onions, artichokes, celery, pasta shells and bean sprouts. You read that right. If the combination sounds strange, the textures gave an otherwise soupy standard new life.

Hubs had seconds and that was all the proof I needed.

What would you put in your version of a tuna bake? What are you trying to clear out of your cupboard?

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?
