Crispy Peanut Tofu & Cauliflower Fried Rice

Skip the rice and go meatless with this vegetarian cauliflower fried rice topped with crispy tofu and a peanut-soy sauce. With all that flavor you won’t notice that it’s not real rice!

Crispy Peanut Tofu & Cauliflower Fried Rice 1

What a crazy World Cup game yesterday! I had my bets on Germany but was expecting a close game, as I am sure most people were. After the 4th goal I was completely at a loss for words. By the 6th goal I stopped paying close attention and was attending to other things, therefore missing the final two goals making it a 7-1 win for Germany. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a score that high ever in soccer, even when playing on my own club teams growing up. What a sad way for the hosting country to be booted out of the race. At least they get to play in the third-place game. On the up side, I’m even more impressed with the USA team keeping Germany to one goal in our game!

But moving on to this stir fry. After seeing a couple recipes for cauliflower rice I was sold. All I needed was to get my hands on some cauliflower, and after my broccoli/cauliflower/cabbage U-picking adventure that mission was completed. The texture of the cauliflower may not exactly resemble rice but it was close enough that neither myself nor my dad were overly aware of the substitution. As for the tofu, it was so sufficiently drained and dried that it sucked up all the flavors from the peanut-soy sauce, resulting in some of the best tofu I’ve ever had. If you’re been looking for a super-vegged out meatless meal, I highly recommend trying this.

BBQ World Peas Burger

Season your burgers in a snap with smashed, dried peas. The BBQ peas added just enough flavor to this burger to not need any other seasonings.

BBQ World Peas Burger

NEWSFLASH! The USA men’s soccer team lost a good fight to Belgium in overtime. Sadness. But that has been completely overshadowed by the birth of my newest nephew last night! I woke up to a phone call from my brother early this morning (or late last night for them being in CA) telling me that little Griffin had arrived 1.5 weeks early and fast. More updates to come once I know more.

And now for your regularly scheduled post.

I have discovered a new way to season burgers in a jiffy – seasoned dried peas. Yes peas in a burger. I took a snack-bag of BBQ seasoned dried peas, smashed them with a rolling pin and mixed it into ground beef. No other seasoning required. Just cook and top with your favorite burger fixings. I went with some bacon-cheddar that I found at Trader Joe’s and a side of homemade onion rings.

What would you make with dried peas? Check out all these flavor varieties from World Peas: Nagano Wasabi, Sichuan Chili, Sicilian Tomato & Garlic, Hungarian Garlic, Bombay Curry, Santa Barbara Ranch, and Texas Barbeque.

Pass the Cook Book Club: Guy Fieri’s Asian Fried Quinoa

PCBC-post-image

Pass the Cook Book Club returns with round two! This month Kita chose Guy Fieri’s cook book titled Guy Fieri Food: Cookin’ It, Livin’ It, Lovin’ It. From the recipe selection, I decided to make his Asian Fried Quinoa. I’ve used quinoa in many different dishes, so I was excited to see how it would turn out as a substitute in fried rice. Obviously the texture was much different from rice, but the flavors were spot on and the mix of vegetables was wonderful (it was my first experience with baby bok choy as well). This dish was a great healthier alternative to traditional fried rice but it’s not a permanent substitution. Sometimes a girl just needs some rice!

Pork Chops with Pineapple Fried Rice

Fried rice is one of my favorites although I’ve only made it myself a handful of times. It is likely due to Qing bringing in fresh homemade fried rice for us at work sometimes, and I am convinced I cannot make it any better. One of these days I need to watch her make it. She uses Asian BBQ pork which you can only buy at the Asian grocery store – another place I need to check out evidently.

Meanwhile while planning to invade her kitchen, I took a stab at fried rice again with this pineapple and pork chop version. Granted there is no competition when it comes to Qing’s fried rice, but it was still quite good. Next time I would use less onion, but that may just be my preference. But I really thought the grilled pineapple was a must for the flavor of this dish. Start up your grill!

Spicy Basil Chicken

I picked up Brady from the vet yesterday and was none too pleased to be stuffed back into his cat carrier, but upon his release back home he was happy as a clam! I was sent home with two weeks worth of antibiotics and hopefully it will be smooth sailing after that. Definitely do not like that I will be leaving town again soon, but he will have a good cat-sitter who has been given advanced approval to take him to the vet at the first sign of any new flare-ups. But for now, hooray happy kitty! Totally enjoyed reading on the couch with him snuggled up next to me again last night.

Now that all is well let’s talk about dinner. I am guilty of being subscribed to several cooking magazines, yet rarely do I cook from them. I will fold over pages and drool over everything in sight but for some reason I easily forget even the most tantalizing images. I have this problem with many of the amazing cookbooks I own as well. Although while we are at it, I probably only ever make a fraction of the number of recipes I bookmark online. Alas.

Thankfully for me, I managed to make this stir-fry from a recent issue of Cooking Light. This meal satisfies the taste buds with all the great flavors going on. A spicy basil sauce coats the chicken which is served with sautéed snow peas and peppers and brown rice with sesame seeds. But if you are looking to cut back on time, you can use instant brown rice and some steamed vegetables instead. The chicken holds the spotlight anyway.
