Look at this revival of food blog! Now if only I could get all my other friends post....OH WELL.

Alison and I made Coconut Curried Tofu with Green Jasmine Rice a few weeks ago. It was a little more complicated of a recipe than I usually go for, but it was darn good!

Coconut Curried Tofu with Green Jasmine Rice
The rice:
1/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
1 3/4 cups water
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup jasmine or basmati rice
1 cup (packed) coarsely chopped fresh cilantro
1/2 cup unsweetened light coconut milk
1 teaspoons minced fresh ginger
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1 large garlic cloves, minced
1/4 cup coconut milk

For the rice
--Take the unsweetened coconut (make sure it is UNsweetened!) and brown it in a pan for about a minute or two. Puree the cilantro, coconut milk, ginger, lime and garlic together. Heat up the water and salt until boiling and then add in the rice. Once the rice is cooked, mix the coconut and the cilantro mixture into it.

Tofu and veggies:
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
16 ounces extra-firm tofu, drained, patted dry, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
1/2 cup thinly sliced green onions
2 teaspoons curry powder
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/8 teaspoon dried crushed red pepper
1 cup tomatoes
1/2 cup red peppers
1/2 zucchini-thinly sliced for quicker cooking

The veggies for this recipe are really flexible. We added red peppers and zucchini but you can probably do a mix of whatever you have around the house. Heat up oil and fry the tofu into cubes. This was tricky for us because the tofu stuck to the bottom of the use a non-stick pan. Add the zucchini, onions, peppers. curry powder, cumin, garlic, crushed red pepper and fry for a minute or two. Add tomatoes and 1/4 coconut milk. Season with salt and pepper!

Add yummy rice mix into a bowl and top with yummy tofu and veggie mix! ITS AWESOME!


SO! I realized that I forgot to post about what I REALLY meant to post about in the last post!

Okay okay. So I haven't cooked pretty much AT ALL for the past two weeks. It's tragic I know!

Here are some photos of some Mango Lassi's that Evan and I cooked! I'll try to remember the recipe!
Pretty sure it goes something like this....

Mango Lassi

1 cup plain yogurt
1/2 cup milk
1/2 chopped fresh mango (check out the farmers market for some for cheap!)
4 teaspoons sugar, or too taste. We had ours a little sweet, a little savory
1 teaspoon ground cardamon (thats the savory right there!)

In a blender, blend.
Actually, I thought we had ice in ours? I can't remember. Here are some photos!

YUM! I totally recommend this drink during the summer! It is SO good and SO refreshing!
