|Mmmmhmmmm tender & delicious.|
Thus created another happy stir fry for dinner.
1/2 block of tofu
2 tablespoons cilantro
2 tablespoons chopped green onion
2 teaspoons sesame oil
1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper
1/4 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1/2 cup drained and rinsed black beans
1/2 cup of cooked green peas
|One block of tofu says goodbye to the other.|
|Oils & herbs prepared for chopped tofu.|
|Hand toss tofu into the mixture, making sure to coat each part.|
|Pour entire bowl on a hot olive oiled skillet, set on medium heat & cover. Warning: kitchen may smell very fragrant!|
|Turn over after 5 minutes & cover again.|
|Add pretty black beans.|
|Then cooked peas and a cilantro garnish.|
|This almost looks like grapes on a vine, lol.|
To think, I used to hate soft tofu and pouted whenever it wasn't fried to a crisp. Now I should head back to those restaurants and give soft tofu an apology. It's not so bad.
Light, well seasoned, and of firm texture, it's unique, flavored partially by the black beans and green pea sea.
Plus loved the beauty of cilantro firmly attached to random rectangular chunks. Made dinner almost upscale and elegant by this unintentional artistry.
|This was amazing!|
Out of the two, I preferred this dish.
Tasted like mini sirloin steaks.
Except well, not even in my non-vegetarian days have I ever had a sirloin steak. :o
