But it was sooo good.

Tofu BBQ Sandwich

1/2 box of hard tofu
3 tbsp. vegetable oil
5 tbsp. barbecue sauce (I used Sweet Ray's Honey Chipotle)
2 tbsp. minced garlic
1/2 onion diced; 1/2 sliced
1 tomato, sliced
Hamburger buns

1. Drain tofu and press between two thick layers of paper towels for an hour, until all water has been pressed out.
2. Cut into 1/4 in. slices and place on a plate in the freezer for an hour.
3. Heat the vegetable oil over high heat. When it's popping, place the tofu slices in and fry until crispy on both sides.
4. Add diced onion, garlic, and barbecue sauce, making sure it coats the tofu well.
5. Place directly on bun and garnish with onion and tomato slices plus whatever else you like on your hamburgers.

Excellent with roast corn and strawberry shortcake for dessert, by the way.

And you thought tofu couldn't be good.

Super Special Smoothie

Makes 2 servings.

1 c. plain non-fat Greek yogurt
1 tbsp. peanut butter
1 small banana, sliced
1 tsp. honey
Optional: 1/2 c. almond or regular milk

(1) Combine all ingredients and blend in a blender or food processor.
(2) Chill in fridge overnight or add ice chips.
(3) Enjoy the most amazing smoothie you will have ever made in your entire life.

Unlike my Ghetto Spaghetti of yore, this is actually astounding in a good way. I'm kind of addicted to Greek yogurt anyway (hey, it's good for you!) but this. Oh my gosh. A-mazing.

Ghetto Spaghetti

1 small tomato
1/3 package of spaghetti noodles
1 tbsp. balsalmic vinegar
1/4 c. sliced mushrooms
3 oz. tofu
3 tbsp. olive oil
1/2 c. V8

To make:

1. Bring water to a rapid boil in a pot. Add spaghetti and bring to a boil again. Stir frequently.

2. Pour olive oil and balsalmic vinegar into pan. Find out that you have no tomato sauce. Improvise, using V8 and one small tomato cut into chunks. That counts, right?

3. Heat on high, adding tofu (mashed) and mushrooms when hot.

4. Drain the noodles and pour the "sauce" over them.

Enjoy! (Or not...)
