evening I was home by myself wondering what to have for supper
without cooking a full meal just for me. I looked into my refrigerator
to see what little bits of food was available to make a quick
and healthy supper. I found some firm tofu along with some little
bits of veggies. By mixing all this together, adding a steamed
fresh vegetable and some whole grain toast, I was set in about
10 minutes! This recipe could easily be doubled.
- 1/2 pound firm or extra firm tofu
- handful of washed and dried baby spinach
- 1/2 roasted
red pepper, cut into smallish pieces
- 1/4 of
a small onion, diced
- 1/2 teaspoon
- Mrs. Dash
seasoning, as desired
- Drain and wrap tofu in a clean towel to
press out even more water - then mash into a bowl with a fork
or potato masher.
- Saute in a bit of olive oil the veggies
- When lightly sauteed, add the mashed tofu,
stir until golden and heated through sprinkle with a bit of
any Mrs. Dash seasoning for additional flavor if desired.
Any left overs
can be eaten the next day wrapped into a burrito or pita, warmed
have also made this using thawed frozen tofu. Drain well, then
press or squeeze any additional water out of the block of tofu
until as dry as possible. Cook as above. A 1# block of tofu makes
3 generous servings.
use for any leftover: Put
on top of a mixed green salad the next day. Absolutely
delicious and easy to have a complete and ultra-healthy
meal by adding a whole wheat bagel and fresh fruit.
