You don’t have to be a vegetarian. Or a vegan. Or really weird. Or any of the excuses you’ve made over the years for avoiding tofu.
If this guy… this bacon loving man likes tofu…
…then you can too!
It’s not slimy. It’s not smelly. It’s not mushy. I promise!
Just give it a try… these tofu shrimp bowls I made the other night don’t really have a recipe, per se, but here’s what I did.
Tofu Shrimp Bowls
- 1 block tofu
- 8 ounces cooked cocktail shrimp
- 1/2 cup frozen lima beans
- 1 cup frozen peas
- cooked rice
- 1/3 cup water
Prepare tofu according to The Front Burner Blog’s tutorial. Meanwhile, in a separate saucepan, place water, shrimp, lima beans, and peas. Season with salt and pepper and let simmer until heated through. Prepare your rice according to package directions, and combine rice, shrimp/veggie mixture, and tofu in a bowl to serve. Enjoy! We found everything very flavorful on its own, but you could experiment with soy sauce, teriyaki, etc. if you’d like an extra boost of flavor!
Question of the Day:
On a scale of 1-10, how do you feel about tofu? 1=EWWWW gross, I’d never eat it if I was starving in the desert and 10=tofu is the BEST thing EVER!!!!! I’m about an 8… I won’t go so far as to say it’s my absolute favorite food ever, and I wouldn’t eat it once a day [or once a week even], but I’ll eat it a few times a month.
