I follow the [syndicated profile] stonesoup_feed  and thought it would be a good rec for those of us in this community.  She posts simple recipes with five ingredients or less.  Her stuff is very creative.  There is a nice mix of vegetarian and non-vegetarian.  Where my idea of simple and easy often does not include veggies, her stuff always seems to.  There are pretty pictures to inspire you to try recipes (and make you hungry which can be a benefit for those of us who have issues with appetite). 

I have copied today's recipe under the cut so that you can see how she lays them out but I encourage you to look over her past entries as well.  At least once a week I think, "yum, I should make that."  Also, if you go to her blog, she has an ebook for free with recipes but I admit to downloading and then never working my way through it.  The feed is just a more user-friendly for me and how my brain works.


[5 ingredients | 10 minutes]
scrambled tofu with tomato & peppers

serves 2

While I love delicate, silken tofu in my miso soup, firm tofu is my preferred option for cooking with. I find the best firm tofu is the one that feels the firmest in the packet, so go ahead and have a little squeeze in the supermarket.

Feel free to spice this up with a little fresh or dried chilli. With a little extra tomato paste, I’m thinking it would make a wonderful sauce for pasta.

In the photo I’ve served it with the leaves on the side, but I think it actually looks prettier serving the scrambled tofu on top of a bed of leaves.

1/2 jar red peppers (about 150g / 5oz), drained
300g (10oz) firm tofu, crumbled into chunks
4 tablespoons tomato paste
2 teaspoons smoky paprika
green leaves, to serve

1. Heat a few tablespoons olive oil in a large frying pan (skillet).

2. Add peppers and stir for a few seconds. Add tofu and stir fry, breaking it up further with a fork or spoon. Cook for a few minutes.

3. Add tomato paste and paprika. Continue to cook and stir for a few more minutes until everything is hot and the tofu is well scrambled.

4. Taste and Season. Serve on a bed of greens.
