Recipe inventing comes naturally to me … I am constantly thinking of new combinations in my head. Sometimes, I challenge myself to make an exciting dish out of what’s already in my kitchen/garden. I also don’t have much time, so I usually come up with these ideas when I’m at school or work … I jot a few things down, use some of the cooking techniques I’m familiar with, and then throw in a new twist.
Here’s yet another one of those concoctions … I wasn’t sure about it at first, but it turned out splendid and it got the stamp of approval from my Sweetie.
What you will need:
- 8 ounces of tofu, thinly sliced.
- a cup of broccoli florets
- 15-20 shiitake mushrooms, cleaned and stems removed
- 1 lb or green beans, washed and cut into 1 inch pieces
- oil or butter
- salt and pepper
- Blue cheese crumbles for garnish
To plate: Place a large scoop or two of vegetables to a bowl. Then put down a layer of mushroom, top with the tofu and then sprinkle on the blue cheese. The blue cheese gives a nice creamy element to the crisp veggies and tofu while adding a nice punch of flavor to the dish.
Please let me know what you think in the comments section. I always love hearing feedback.
Until next time, I send you peace, love, and good energy.
