So last night, late coming home from work and tired, I thought about what would really turn me on, taste-wise, and what would pick-me-up after the long day. Thus, I came up with:
Baked tofu with a peanut butter/soy sauce/apricot jam glaze
Risotto (from a box! but still good)
Bag of Newman's own baby spinach sauteed with shiitake mushrooms
The tofu I pressed and spread out in one of my lovely blue Le Creuset baking dishes, and then I piled on the marinade. Baked it for about 30-40 minutes in a 400-degree oven until slightly cripsy and firm. The mushrooms I sauteed in a bit of olive oil and soy sauce, then added the spinach and covered to wilt.
I think almost every ingredient I used was certified organic - which, seing as how I live in San Francisco, is probably no big deal. But I felt good about it -- and the meal tasted delicious -- and thought that Ms. Mother Nature would approve, if she things about these things.
[add a couple of Full Sail Pale Ales and you have a very happy dinnertime experience.}
