Ginger Garlic Tofu Recipe (Mary Makes Good) People, I can not stop eating this. Every week I tell myself to skip the tofu section. When that fails, I try to convince myself to try a new marinade, something different, maybe something tomato-based, or possibly lemongrass-inspired. Finally, when it comes to it, and the jiggly, wiggly block of vauge off-whiteness is sitting before me on my kitchen counter, I crumble. Out comes the soy sauce, the ginger, the garlic, the hot red pepper, and the toasted sesame oil. In goes the tofu, where it will marinate overnight, and eventually wind up in my cast iron pan, browned and lovely, slightly firm, but still soft and spongy beneath its outer layer.

I'll inevitably eat it over a bowl of brown basmati rice, my other current favorite. Something green, like Hilah Cooking's Garlic Sesame Kale or Quick Pickled Bok Choy Salad will find its way into the bowl too. I know it sounds a little far-fetched, someone being obsessed with tofu. Now I'll scream it from the hills. Ingredients Directions. Vegan Indian Paneer Cheese Substitute Recipe. Tofu Popcorn Chick’n (Vegan & Gluten Free) | The Vedge. Hey there!

A cyclone came through the area and brought torrential rain, flash flooding and wild winds.

Our house is on the top of a hill and pretty exposed, so we braced ourselves for the worse and had some water come in through the top of some windows which made a nice indoor waterfall! Things could have been a lot worse though, compared to what some other people had to deal with. The wild weather has finally passed, and its taken everyone a few days to clean up all the damage – and the unbelievable number of trees that were taken down.

The last time I was in Maine, I picked up a bottle of espresso-infused balsamic vinegar at Leroux Kitchen in Portland. Instead of featuring the usual tang of balsamic, this vinegar has a deep and darkly complex quality—and combining that with a sweet and salty element results in a perfect marinade for tofu.

(However, you can really use any kind of balsamic vinegar for this dish and it will still taste really good.) Besides looking really pretty and rustic, the finishing touch of dried thyme and freshly cracked black pepper and the end gives this balsamic tofu dish a subtle earthly feel as well as a slight and pleasant kick of heat.

Since we acquired a fancy new BBQ back in January, you could probably say that my Irishman and I have been more than a little obsessed with cooking outdoors this year. Even in the depths of Winter, here in the Snowy Mountains, we’ve been rugging up and firing up the barbie most weekends.

There has, of course, been a lot of experimentation. Different charcoals, different types of wood smoking chips, super high temperatures, long slow low temperatures, different cuts of meat, different veg… I could go on. It may surprise you, though, there’s been one area that we haven’t really gotten into. Yes, marinades. It could be scars from an earlier unsuccessful attempt. But when I think about it, it’s more about being organised. A few months back, I had the brilliant idea to start playing around with post-cooking marinades. So while the BBQ king has been busy working his magic, I’ve been whipping up my little marinades. As soon as the steak, or whatever is done, it has a tasty bath to rest in. 1. 2. 3.
