John got an Apple gift card for his birthday and bought an iPod.
John's iPod touch has a lot of free foodie apps, including one from Vegan Yum Yum.
That is how we found this particular recipe.
That's the whole story. Thanks for coming!
It definitely tasted better than it looked, but this dish didn't wow me the way I expected it to. I think part of the problem was that we pressed the tofu - usually a very good idea. In this case, the recipe kind of depends on the tofu having moisture left when you put it into a dry cast iron pan. It kind of stuck all over the pan, though in the end, it still tasted awesome.
My complaints are pretty petty in general here; the quinoa with lime zest tasted pretty great, and the collards complimented the whole thing really well. I guess I feel like it took kind of a while to prepare, when maybe similar vegan (and non-vegan) stuff I've made has been just as good and taken less time.
Still, I'm glad we made this. I feel like it includes a lot of different food groups and tastes pretty good. After typing that I feel like I was picky in the previous paragraph.
I didn't get a good shot before we tore into it, but I promise this tastes better than it looks.
Instead of posting the whole recipe, I'll just send you to the blog itself, so you can see her step-by-step pictures. I'd really recommend giving this recipe a try.
