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

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.

Burger and Bratwurst, anyone?

Care for some burger and bratwurst?  There are some days when I don’t feel like eating rice. During these days, I usually have subs or sandwiches. Today, I found some burgers and bratwurst in the freezer. I thought of giving em a quick grill.

Burger and Brtwurst

I would assume that most of you know how to grill burgers. We just put it on the hot grill, add some spices, baste it (sometimes), and flip it when the other side is done (pretty much like grilling liempo (pork belly)). How about preparing bratwurst before grilling?

I don’t grill bratwurst right away. I usually do it the German way,parboil it first in beer with onions and butter. Sounds interesting? well, its time for you to give it a try.
