Skip Any Weeks You Don’t Need
No Minimum Obligation
This particular dish happened to by my favorite for many reasons. For started I don’t typically eat tofu on a regular basis and find that when prepared at home that I’m somewhat disappointed in the flavor as compared to that in vegan restaurants
Secondly, the dish was comprised of bok choy, which is not something I typically cook with simply because I never have, and I would imagine its because of the simple fact that I never cooked with it lol, but it actually adds a lot of character to plant based dishes and has a great flavor
Lastly, I’m not really into grains and rice, but found that the jasmine rice soaked in coconut milk and really complimented the dish, it was so amazing, I would recommend that rice to accompany any meal!!
1 BLOCK TOFU
1/2 CUP BASMATI RICE
2 BABY BOK CHOY
2 CLOVES GARLIC
1 THUMB GINGER
1 OZ CASHEWS
1 TBSP HONEY OR AGAVE
2 TBSP SOY SAUCE OR BRAGGS AMINO ACID
1 CAN COCONUT MILK
4 TSP OIL – [I USED SESAME]
In a pot bring 1/2 cup of water to a boil with one cup of the coconut milk and with 1/2 teaspoon salt. Finely chop the garlic and 1/2 a tablespoon of ginger. Cut the tofu into 1 inch cubes. Cut the Bok Choy into pieces, keeping the greens and stems separate
Once boiling, add the rice to the coconut milk, cover and reduce the heat to low. Cook for 15 minutes and turn off the heat. Let it rest covered, for 5 more minutes. NO PEEKING!!
To make the teriyaki sauce, co,nine the honey, garlic, soy and ginger in a bowl. Stir until the honey has dissolved
Heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil in a pan over medium heat. Add the tofu and cook about two minutes on each side. Season with 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper to taste
Remove the tofu from the pan and heat another 2 teaspoons of oil. Add the Bok Choy stems and stir fry for a couple minutes over medium heat and add back the tofu with the Bok Choy leaves. Add the teriyaki sauce and gently toss the ingredients to coat. Season with 1/4 teaspoon of salt.
Fluff the rice with a fork and serve the teriyaki tofu on top. Sprinkle with cashews.
Here’s a look at all the amazingness from week 2!!
Curious what my FAVE was?!
Let me just start by saying.. I’m NOT a huge soup person. Whether its the lack of quality of plant based soups or the fact that I’m overly paranoid about the sodium content of your typical soups… I rarely consume soup. THIS soup though, was flavorful, filling, and left me wanting more!! For a quick and easy peasy soup I highly recommend this Tuscan Ribolita!!
- 1 CIABATTA
- 1 CARROT
- 1 CELERY STICK
- 1 RED ONION
- 2 CLOVES GARLIC
- 4 OZ KALE
- 1 CAN DICED TOMATOES
- 1 CAN CANNELLINI BEANS
- 1/4 C PARMESAN CHEESE
- 1/4 T FENNEL SEEDS
- 1/4 T CHILI FLAKES
- 1 VEGGIE STOCK CONCENTRATE
- 1 T OLIVE OIL
1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Finely chop 1/2 the onion, 1/4 cup carrots, the celery, and once clove of garlic. Reove the stem from the kale and courasrlsey chop into strips
2. In a poot over medium low heat, heat a tablespoon of olive oile. Add the onion, celery, carrot, and the chopped garlic to th e pot and cook them slowly over the medium low heat with 1/4 teaspoon each of salt [or to taste] fennel seeds, and chili flakes
3. While the veggies cook, prepare the croutons. Cut the bread in half. Cut the remaining garlic clove in half lengthwise and rub it on the cut side of the bread. Top with the parmesan cheese and bake on a tray for 5-7 minutes, or until the bread is nicely toasted and the cheese has melted.
4. Once the vegetables are soft, about 6 minutes, add the diced tomatoes and simmer for about 5 minutes. Drain and rinse the cannelloni beans. Add them to the pot along with 2 cups of water and the stock concentrate. Let it simmer for a couple minutes.
5. Add the kale and cook, covered, until the kale has wilted. Taste the soup and add some salt if necessary
Finish: Cut the croutons into cubes. Ladle the soup into bowls and top with the croutons as they soak up all the yummy broth!!
