For Halloween dinner, the bf and I ate some lo mein, steamed broccoli (with Asian chile sauce for dipping), and Asian marinated tofu (from VwaV ). I actually found myself wanting seconds with the tofu...I was shocked! It was extremely tasty. The key to good tofu is definitely in the pressing and marinating. As for the lo mein, it was made from a recipe that my boyfriend found online quite awhile ago. I will share it here because it's so simple and produces very yummy results.
Lo Mein 1 package brown rice noodles (or other Asian-style noodles) 2 cloves garlic, minced 1 Tbsp. oil, such as canola 2 Tbsp. soy sauce (we use tamari) 2 tsp. sesame oil
Cook the noodles according to the directions on the package and set aside. Heat the oil in a large pot over medium heat and saute the garlic until fragrant. Mix in the soy sauce, sesame oil, and noodles and heat until the noodles are warmed up. It's that simple!
In conclusion, I'd just like to add that broccoli actually tastes really good (really!). In this dinner, it helped to break up the heaviness that can occur with a tofu/noodle dish. It's funny, because I used to be rather scared of the little green trees, but the more I eat them, the more I like them. Oh yeah - it's good for you, too.
