Tonight I made my first Eat, Drink and Be Vegan (ED&BV for short) recipe! I made the Broccoli Cashew Teriyaki Tofu Stir-Fry….it.was.AMAZING! It caught my eye immediately because, 1) I love anything with cashews and 2) it has a whole lot goin on…which seemed delicious and fun! This recipe was very easy to prepare and had a ton of flavor. I halved the recipe to make two servings so I could stick one in the fridge for either lunch or dinner tomorrow night. I’m already looking forward to it!
Dreena recommends serving this stir-fry over brown rice or soba noodles, so of course I chose my favorite–soba! I’ll have to get some more of these noodles next time I’m at the store because they are seeming to go fast.
Nothing better than a big veggie stir-fry atop a bed of soba noodles! This tasted like something I would order at a really good Thai restaurant! Lip-smackin’ yum!
I’m off to my new class tonight! I won’t be bringing anything fun home with me though because laminated doughs take two days of production. One day to actually make the dough and “laminate” it with butter (yeah, I know…not so good for you!) and then you have to stick it in the fridge overnight, otherwise it will be way to soft to work with and butter will squirt everywhere. On day two you just roll out the dough, shape it and bake it! This is my first “non-intro” class in my new program…so that means its probably going to be a lot more intense! I know somewhere along the lines of the next three weeks we are making puff pastry, which you have to “fold and turn” aka roll out 1,000 times! That could almost count as a workout!
See you in the morning!
