What’s Cookin’?

by Eloquence Condo Resort

When my boyfriend and I can’t make up our minds on what to make for dinner, we always resort back to one delicious, and vegan, dish (or a variation of it) !

This recipe is so delicious and easy to make, it needs to be spread throughout the blogosphere.

This recipe is courtesy of bbcgoodfood.com, which is a great resource for finding quality vegetarian and vegan recipes. I’ve switched up the recipe a bit from the website; we never follow recipes exactly as they are anyway. Feel free to add your own spin on this too!

First things first: Make your own homemade paste.

1 jalapeno pepper

3 shallots, chopped

1/2 red pepper

zest 1 lime

2 garlic cloves

ground pepper

a bit of olive oil

Add ingredients into a food processor until smooth. In the meantime, marinate the tofu in 4-5 tbsp  soy sauce.

Ingredients:

Firm tofu, cubed (use as much or as little as you’d like)

1 can light coconut milk

1 eggplant, chopped

1/2 red pepper, chopped and deseeded

1/2 green pepper, chopped and deseeded

mushrooms, halved

sugar snap peas

Grab a large skillet and heat with a bit of olive oil. Add the veggies and the tofu.

In a separate sauce pan, stir together the paste and the coconut milk. Season with bay leaf and desired spices if preferred.

Stir in sauce with veggies and tofu and let simmer.

Grab your rice ( or quinoa! ) and DIG IN!
