This is the perfect meatless Monday recipe, the broccoli and tofu roast in the oven while you whip up the sauce. Dinner in under 30 minutes.
1 (12- to 14-ounce) block of tofu (firm or extra firm)
1 lb of broccoli cut into florets
1/4 cup peanut butter (creamy or natural peanut butter is best — no chunks)
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
2 tablespoons lime juice (or orange juice)
1 tablespoon soy sauce
2 tablespoons sesame oil (olive oil can be used if you’re in a pinch)
1 tablespoon sweet chili sauce or sriracha
Preheat over to 425.
Press the moisture out of the tofu, I like to wrap it in a towel and put a heavy plate on top of it.
Chop the broccoli, toss it with some olive and salt and pepper and spread out on a baking sheet.
Cut the tofu into bite size pieces. Place on a baking sheet that has been oiled. Spray the tofu and pop the tofu and broccoli in the oven. You want to toss them several times to make sure they brown evenly. Bake for 20 – 25 minutes.
I’m a medium bowl combine the remaining ingredients in a bowl to make the sauce.
In a large bowl, place 1/2 the peanut sauce and toss the tofu in the sauce. Divide the tofu and broccoli on to 2 – 4 plates and serve with remaining sauce on the side.
This was inspired by Eating Well. I had some langoustines so used them instead of shrimp. I added asparagus and swapped out dill for lots of fresh chives that came in my CSA. It is a delightful salad, great for picnics and tastes better the next day.
8 oz orzo or small pasta
1 lb langoustines, shrimp or bay shrimp cooked
4 c snap peas, cut into bite size pieces
1 lb asparagus, steamed and cut into small pieces
1/4 c olive oil
1/4 c minced chives
1 tbsp dijon
Zest and juice of one large lemon
Salt and pepper
Cook orzo according to package.
Combine oil, lemon juice, mustard,chives and salt and pepper in a large boil and whisk to combine. Add veggies and shrimp, toss to combine. Drain orzo and stir to combine. Serve warm or at room temperature.
This is so yummy! Thanks Food & Wine for the recipe!
1 1/2 pounds fingerling potatoes
6 tablespoons olive oil, divided
1/2 teaspoons kosher salt, divided
1/2 cup chopped yellow onion
1/3 cup cold water, plus more as needed
1 medium serrano chile, stemmed, seeded (if desired), and roughly chopped
3/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro leaves and stems, divided
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1 small avocado, pitted
1/2 cup pickled hot jalapeño slices (such as Mezzetta) plus 1 1/2 tablespoons pickling liquid
2 ounces Cotija cheese, grated on smallest holes of a box grater (about 1/2 cup)
Preheat oven to 350°F. Toss together potatoes, 2 tablespoons oil, and 1 teaspoon salt on a rimmed baking sheet, and spread in a single layer. Bake in preheated oven until fork-tender, 30 to 40 minutes. Remove from oven.Step 2
Increase oven temperature to 500°F. Using the bottom of a 1-cup dry measuring cup, smash potatoes to about 1/2-inch thickness. (Make sure smashed potatoes are still in a single layer.) Drizzle with 3 tablespoons oil; sprinkle with 1 teaspoon salt. Bake at 500°F until bottoms of potatoes are golden brown, 15 to 20 minutes. Flip potatoes, drizzle with remaining 1 tablespoon oil, and sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon salt. Bake until edges of potatoes are crispy and golden, 8 to 12 minutes.Step 3
While potatoes bake, process onion, 1/3 cup water, serrano, 3 tablespoons cilantro, lime juice, and remaining 11/4 teaspoons salt in a blender until smooth, about 20 seconds. Add avocado, and process until smooth, about 10 seconds. If needed, pulse in additional cold water, 1 tablespoon at a time, to reach a thick but pourable consistency.Step 4
Transfer warm potatoes to a large bowl; add pickled jalapeño slices and pickling liquid, Cotija, and 1/2 cup cilantro; toss to coat. Spoon avocado salsa into 4 small bowls; top evenly with potato mixture, and sprinkle with remaining 1 tablespoon cilantro. Serve immediately.
