Sweet and Savory

Reason number 999 why I love tofu: this recipe. This has got to be one of my favorite tofu recipes of all time and it was sooo good tonight since I haven’t made it in a couple months. I just love the sweet/savory combo that is going on here, combined with the crunch of roasted walnuts and the bitterness of brussels sprouts, it’s a winner. And so fast! This whole thing only took me 15 minutes to make, minus cooking the rice of course. I’m sure I’ll be full for the next couple hours because the dynamite combo of protein, whole grains and fiber that comes from this dish. I ended it with a small piece of my new dark chocolate bar (72% dark—my fav!).


I’m bringing a pb z-bar with me to have later because as full as I am right now, I’m sure in about 3-4 hours I’ll be needing some energy! Friday can’t come soon enough!!

**I only ended up eating my cherries for a snack today and saving the nuts. The bulgur salad held me over very well and I had one last bite of my birthday cake, which I brought in to share, as well!

    Has anyone read anything by Nicholas Sparks? I keep hearing great things about him but I don’t know what book to start with. I don’t want to read the Notebook. I saw the movie. 🙂

    I read “A Walk to Remember”, but I saw the movie first. The on criticism I have heard from people about his books is that they are too sappy or sad, but I haven’t read any of his other books.

    Hey Jenna, question for you: have you ever tried freezing the Cheater’s Baked Beans from Veganomicon? I made them for the first time a few days ago and love them, and would like to start cooking them more often. I like the idea of making a big batch (i.e. not necessarily cutting down the recipe unless abs. necessary) for convenience, but I would hate to waste them…

    I’ve read every single Nicholas Sparks book….they are sappy but necessary once in a while. I just finished his newest one and think that one was the best one yet. I also really enjoyed “Nights in Rodanthe” (making a movie out of it that is coming out in the fall). I can’t think of the name of his newest book out but I highly recommend it. It didn’t fit his usual sappy cliche mold and the ending was excellent. I cry reading every one of his books though. Sometimes there’s nothing better than a good cry…I’m a sap at heart.

    ps- the book “the notebook” was even better than the movie!!!! books are ALWAYS better

    I would recommend reading “The Wedding”…its all about Noah and Allee’s kids…..not really a sequel to the Notebook, but some of the same characters…..such a great author!

    The notebook book was AMAZING! I had to stop reading at one point because I was crying and I couldn’t see the words! I love all of his books.

    My boyfriend made this recipe last night and substituted asparagus for the sprouts — it was devine! Wanted to let you know your website is lovely and so inspirational. I just moved into a bigger place, and I vow to start cooking again (the right way!). I also forsee a future food/photo project happening for myself — so thanks for the great recipe ideas! Your photos/commentary are keeping me going through these long work days at the office….
