We got off work early (that means before 8 PM), so I had time to really focus on making a delicious dinner. Cooking is so relaxingâ€¦ especially when youâ€™re not running around like a headless
You know I had time to put into dinner when I make brown rice (cooking time: at least 30 minutes) instead of millet (15 minutes) or quinoa (7 minutes). You also know I have time to cook when I bake tofu instead of just opening up a can of beans!
I thinly sliced a block of extra firm tofu and laid then out flat on a glass casserole dish. No seasonings or anything because I was planning on making a version of Mmmm Sauce. Then, I baked the tofu for 40 minutes at 400 degrees.
I also steamed some kale and carrots.
The sauce, as mentioned, was a play on Mmmm Sauce. In the food processor, I combined:
1/4 cup nutritional yeast
1/4 cup roasted pumpkin seeds
1/4 cup water
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon curry
Salt and pepper
It was pretty good! The pumpkin seeds definitely added a little something-something.
Balls Bites for dessert!
So â€“ Iâ€™m off to the HEALTHY LIVING SUMMIT in Philadelphia tomorrow. Very excited. I cannot wait to see all the other bloggers and readers who are attending. I also cannot believe that the Summit is in itâ€™s third year. I was on the founding committee, and it really doesnâ€™t seem that long ago that we planned the first Summit. Time flies! But itâ€™s so cool to see blog relationships translate to IRL (in real life) friendships.
