Tofu Scramble

March 28, 2014 — Leave a comment

I grew up loving breakfast for dinner. At the time, it felt a bit like living on the edge. As an adult, I must confess I still feel slightly rebellious indulging on tofu scrambles at night. Perhaps that’s why I love doing so. Either way, this simple and easy tofu scramble recipe is a 10-15 minute quick fix that easily serves two parties, two bowls full.

My hummus addiction is certainly not breaking news. In fact, it has been around for years. However, since recently acquiring a Certified Reconditioned Standard Vitamix High Performance Blender, I’ve started experimenting with making my own. I’ve been working on fine-tuning my hummus experimentations, playing with all sorts of peculiar combinations with the notion that I would eventually stumble on the desired outcome. This weekend, it happened. Naturally it was at a time that I wasn’t measuring anything out (which is pretty typical). I’ve learned that while the whimsical method of guess-timation works wonders for me, it’s not ideal for sharing the recipe love, and so I’ve gradually been adjusting my madness to become more methodical. Tonight I slowed down a minute, measured things out, wrote them down, and arrived at what I am calling my “Holy Spiced Citrus Hummus.” I finished up just in time to sit and enjoy it outside while basking in the sunlight, thanks to the return of daylight saving time.

Saucy ’Shrooms

March 3, 2014 — Leave a comment

Everyone loves sinking their teeth into firm, saucy bite-sized delicacies. While there are certainly meat substitutes that come eerily close to resembling an authentic “hot wing,” I’ve come to fancy mock-ups of the whole vegetable variety—mushrooms to be exact.

These especially saucy ’shrooms were born out of a post-run moment of desperation that went something like, “I need a quick, filling bite to eat, but I’m not sure what I have on hand and I’m definitely craving something nutty and spicy.” To my pleasant surprise, the mushrooms, peanut butter, marinara sauce and Sriracha I scrounged for, came together gracefully to inspire what has become a spicy, saucy staple. With a 15 minute combined prep and cook time, you can’t go wrong with this quick fix. And while this dish makes a hearty bite for one, it is also one that can easily be split between two.

Warning: If you happen to be making these for a date night, you will definitely want to use forks and have ample napkins present. Otherwise the sauciness will get entirely out of hand, all too quickly.
