Tofu tuna

She writes:

Tofu has always been a good source of protein. It’s perfect for those who are watching their weight and trying to live a healthy life. The thing is, tofu in itself tastes quite bland. So what I did here was fried it in honey and oil and added some spices like salt, pepper and rosemary. My healthy sauce of tomatoes, bell peppers, onions and mushrooms added some twist and texture to the whole recipe. The result — tasty, colorful and healthy tofu meal.

Ingredients: The following are the ingredients you will need:

* a block of tofu
* ground pepper
* salt
* rosemary
* basil
* sage
* thyme
* tomatoes
* bell pepper
* onions
* garlic
* spaghetti sauce
* mushrooms
* ketchup
* can of tuna

Procedure:
I did this less than thirty minutes ago… It’s so easy.

What to do:

1. Make sure that your block of tofu is dried by wiping it with a tissue paper. This will make it easier to fry later on.
2. Put a dash of salt, pepper and rosemary on all sides of your tofu. Set it aside.
3. Slice all your vegetables.
4. Open your cans of tuna and mushrooms.
5. Prepare one pan and one casserole.
6. Heat your pan and pour about 2 tbsps. of oil and 4 tbsps. of honey.
7. Once the oil and honey are hot, put your block of tofu. Make sure that each side is fried equally.
8. While waiting for each side to be fried, you can now heat your casserole and pour about 4 tbsps. of oil.
9. Put all the rest of the ingredients (tomatoes, bell pepper, garlic, onion, tuna, mushrooms including the herbs and mix them all together.)
10. After about 2 mins., pour the packet of ketchup and spaghetti sauce. Mix.
11. Let everything boil.
12. If you can multitask like I usually do (coz I’m always in such a hurry), after about 10 minutes, both your dishes should be pretty much done. Put the fried tofu on a shallow bowl then pour the Tuna and Tomato Sauce around it.

    What is ROSEMARY in Tagalog? and where can we buy that herb?
    Can you kindly issue a sort of leaflet showing vegetables and herbs in English, translated to Tagalog?
    Looking forward for the very kind reply.
    regards

      Rosemary is “Kamarya” in tagalog Batangas…ang leaves ay parang ordinary comb ang size na dark gray ang color na scented na parang ka pamilya ng “bayleaves” ang amoy…
