Tofu for you, tofu for me…
That’s right, another tofu post – making a grand total of three tofu recipes on this blog. After receiving such lovely comment on my Tofu Sushi (or Sushi Bowl) post last week, I decided to go for it and work on another tofu recipe.
If you’re someone who thinks “Eww… tofu! Blech!” then:
- I’m sorry
- Please give tofu a chance
- Chillax – this isn’t about to become a tofu blog. I’ve got something super-exciting involving peanut butter and chocolate (and no tofu!) coming up on Friday
A while ago I mentioned my dislike for dry, cumin-y tofu scrambles and came up with an alternative: the Polenta Scramble. And there’s no doubt that I love my polenta scrambles!
But if there’s one thing I don’t like it’s unsolved food conundrums (see Exhibit A). So I’ve been buying and scrambling tofu like some sort of tofu monster.
Quickly it became very obvious that needed some sauce in my scramble. Dry tofu? Boo! Saucy tofu? Now that’s more like it!
Right when I was trying to come up with a sauce for my scramble, I noticed something else in the world outside my kitchen – which proves that going outside is totally a good idea.
Maybe I’ve been living under a rock for several years, but I swear a bunch of Thai takeout places just sprung up overnight. Regardless of whether these places have been here for three days or three decades, one thing is clear: They have darn good noodles.
And whaddayaknow? Tofu Scramble + Thai-inspired Peanut Sauce = Awesomeness!
But I should’ve guessed that I’d love this – it has peanut butter, after all.
