Before I even start babbling, I want to first take a moment to thank iwishiwerevegan for posting the blog entry that inspired me. Your post that mentioned “Tofu Tacos” did it, and I love it! THANK YOU! *squishy hugs*
My Elflings helped me chop/eat the yellow peppers (My youngest actually picked out the pepper at the grocery store and insisted she needed it. At $3 I’m really glad she needed it for survival. <gg>), onions, parsley, garlic, etc. They took turns adding stuff and stirring it all together, too… I need for them to know how to prepare food.
While I was setting the table, one of my Elflings tasted the tofu and asked: “Mommy, is this the tofu?”
“Yes,” I said, “that’s it.”
“It’s awesome!” she replied.
I smiled, hugged her and thought of iwishiwerevegan. =0)Tofu Tacos 1 lb extra-firm tofu* 1 yellow or red pepper*, chopped 1/2 an onion*, chopped 1 large tomato*, diced 1 tsp cumin* 1 tsp chili powder* fresh parsley*, chopped 2 cloves of garlic*, minced 1 Tbsp salsa* (mild, medium, whatever) glug of EVOO* salt (I used 2-3 tsp) and pepper* to taste * = Organic :: Saute onions in EVOO over medium heat.
