Pita Bread

I love to bake my own bread and pita is my favorite I think.  There is nothing better than the smell of warm bread coming out of the oven.  Pita takes a little practice to make, but it is well worth the effort.

 

Broiled Asian Tofu

Vegan Broiled Asian Tofu

I just have to say that tofu is not something that I usually like, in fact I really dislike it.  If something tastes like tofu, I don’t eat it.  This does not taste like tofu.  My kids share my feeling about tofu and they gobbled this up.  It has a sweet and salty flavor to it and it gets a little crisp under the broiler.   I served it with sautéed kale and brown rice, but it would be great on a salad as well.  Just make sure you let your tofu drain really well.  You want as much water out of it as you can get, so it can absorb more of the marinade.   I put my tofu in a strainer and then put a small plate on top of it, then put a heavy jar on the plate to help press out the water.

We usually go all out for St Patrick’s Day at my house.  We eat green and Irish food all day.  A leprechaun usually comes to visit our house and plays lots of tricks as well.  Irish Soda Bread is one of our favorite recipes for St Patty’s.  It is slightly sweet and has a great flavor from the caraway seeds.  It is not a yeast bread, so is doesn’t take long to make.  Some other great recipes for St Patrick’s Day would be Shepherd’s Garden Pie and Spinach Pesto Pasta.  Don’t forget to wear your green!!
