it's been a long week. next week will be a longer one. i perked myself up from a nap, however, to make a little dinner.
readying potatoes and turnips for the pot
smashed with tofui did the laziest tofu preparation ever, and it turned out good. first, i cut it into 8 fillets, and put in a hot skillet to remove some moisture. then, cubed and thrown into a pot with soy, hot sauce, maple syrup, sesame oil, nutritional yeast and a little water. just before the potatoes/turnips were done, i drained it in a sieve and tossed in breadcrumbs right over the top. then, back into the skillet with hot peanut oil. mmm. simple, but good. we love tofu and mashed potatoes with caramelized onions, greens, and/or mushrooms. inspired by the farm cafe, in portland. i love that on their website, the picture on the very top is of someone holding a couple palmfuls of dirt. soil. you know. where food comes from. i (heart) the farm. next time you're in pdx, check it out. or the next time i'm in portland, we can go together!
