Do any of you have cookbooks that look like this?
A little too loved?
Complete with soy sauce stains, water damage, and torn edges?
…Just me? Okay.
For as long as I can remember, my parents would regularly make two dishes out of this cookbook: Szechwan Chicken and Mongolian Beef. They’ve always been two of my favorite meals.
Today, I decided to give the chicken recipe a different twist by using tofu instead of the poultry. What up vegetarian meal! 🙂
Served with fluffy rice and steamed (but still bright green and crisp, please!) broccoli, you’ve got a yummy meal.
My favorite thing about it has always been the addition of peanuts. Love that crunch.
I definitely recommend swapping tofu or tempeh for meat in your favorite dishes from time to time. It’s cool to switch things up and be a temporary vegetarian. 😉
Do any of you guys have tips for pressing tofu?
I feel like no matter what I do, it still retains a lot of moisture.
Have a great night!
