BBQ Tofu

We cook alot.  It’s super fun and gives us something to do besides computers or TV.  One of our favorite things to cook is picture above, BBQ Tofu.  We drain the tofu, slice it thin, pepper it, lightly pan fry it, then pour over some BBQ sauce (letting it cook a bit in the hot pan).  Lori says it’s like crack (or what she thinks it would be like).


Another of our favorites is Enchilladas.  The tortillas come from a mix we get at Wal-Mart, we mix it then roll it out, fill it with TVP (flavored with a taco season pack) and cheese and sometimes onion or salsa, roll it and cover it with our AMAZING homemade sauce.  This is also like crack to Lori, she would eat it every day if she could.  She is telling me right now to go out and get the ingredients so we can make it tonight . . .

Last night we made Country Baked Seitan for the first time in a while, we didn’t realize how much we missed it until it hit our tastebuds.  This time we mixed it up with brown gravy (from a pack) enhanced with mushrooms and onions.  It tasted like the sauce on salsbury steak.  And then the first chef to get kicked off of Top Chef made Seitan, but sucked at it.  They should have had ours!

I’ve been wanting to make sushi for a while now, but Lori has always been apprehensive. Usually I’d mention it and she’d reluctantly say yes, then five minutes later forget and suggest something else. And I’m fine with that because I know she doesn’t like it. But last night I finally got to make it. Perseverance.

While Lori was at work I made a ginger garlic marinade for the tofu strips and let that sit in the fridge for a few hours. When Lori got home we cooked the tofu, allowing it to absorb the extra sauce, and threw in the carrots and cucumber strips to soften them up a bit.

It was a lot of fun. Even though we couldn’t find a bamboo rolling mat, the rolls came together nice and relatively easy. Getting Lori to like sushi on the other hand, is not so easy. She tried it, but couldn’t stomach it. She had Wendy’s instead.   There are more pictures here.
