I’ve mentioned my tepidation with tofu before, but -like I mentioned earlier- I also really love it. So, since it’s been a few weeks since I last had some, I figured I deserved a lil’ tofu in my life.
Enter: Roasted red pepper sauce.
It’s good. I saved some so I could use it with pasta later [or something else that I haven’t completely thought up yet]. Ugh, love peppers. Especially roasted peppers. You can’t beat that smoky flavor folks. You just can’t. Simple math. *warning* the garlic is kickin some major ass in this sauce- bring your gum…or just use less garlic.
I was drawn to the idea of coating tofu in an almond flour- definitely never thought of that one before. I love the flavor almonds and almond extract gives to baked goods so, really, why not lunch/dinner? Tofu can be so bland without proper preparation and a good recipe. Needless to say, I welcomed this one with open arms.
So go on, buy some tofu and get your hands dirty [it’s good for you].
I served mine over quinoa…in tupperware [stayin’ classy] for this week’s lunch. I think all those retired active Navy men on base have just stopped asking me what I have for lunch. They totally don’t ‘do’ tofu. They were impressed that I made myself a sausage and cheese english muffin the other day for breakfast though. #win
