Step Away From The Meat Case. Put Down That Steak. Keep on Moving.
EOS is going vegetarian. No more standing rib roasts. No more lamb chops. Wait, really, no more lamb chops? Might have to think this out a little more!
Anyway, I think going without red meat is a good thing. We don’t really eat much of it anyway. We’re more chicken and fish people and always always tons of veggies, so going without meat won’t be much of a stretch…..for me. Not sure Mr. EOS is fully on board with this plan. He loves his veggies too but he also likes to have something on the plate that requires using a sharp knife!
So, at the market today, it was all about the broccoli, peppers and cauliflower, leeks, kale, zucchini and yellow squash.
Buying lots of veggies is the norm for me so I didn’t go out of my comfort zone, until I got to the tofu aisle!!
- There’s Sprouted and Non Sprouted.
- There’s Tofu Plus.
- There’s Regular, Firm, and Soft
- And then there’s silken organic, and lite silken organic.
I closed my eyes, reached into the display case, and came up with ….TofuPlus Organic Firm, the blue faced container above. Don’t ask me why I chose that one. I am Clueless About Tofu.
I’m not really a tofu fan unless I am at an Asian restaurant and it’s in some soup or dish. In other words, when someone else is cooking it! I’ve bought tofu a few times before, making at the most one meal with it then letting the rest sprout and turn green in the fridge. I won’t make any promises how often this container will get used.
Side note: Mr. EOS’s foot is firmly in the NO TOFU for any reason camp.
Tonight, Mr. EOS is out, so I plan to concoct a recipe from my old book, Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone. It’s called Stir-Fry Broccoli Mushrooms, and Peppers with Caramelized Tofu. [Dawg just ran into the other room].
Review later….wish me luck!
