I made about ten or eleven seitan sausages yesterday in my steamer and used them to make some delicious hot dogs. Today I had four left over and decided to do something different. I found some BBQ sauce and a stray onion and decided that would be enough. I also found a box of yellow rice that had fallen into the depths of the pantry to await my rescue. Today was it’s day to shine and I thought it went hand and hand with this BBQ sausage and broccoli. Quite filling on a rainy day, too.
I don’t make this dish very often, but when I do I completely enjoy it. For this dish, I always drain and press my tofu the night before, freeze it, bake it, and then fry it. That’s not hard at all, but it can be time consuming. It definitely has a more ” meaty ” texture and is not so mushy if you take the time to prepare it that way, though. Hope you enjoy as much as I do.
This meal is always pretty fun. You get to see what all you have in your pantry or fridge to throw in and make a colorful splash with. Use whatever you want, the more the merrier. Also, you can pour some juice, turn on some Pearl Jam, play with your cat a little and hop on reddit while it all cooks. Now that’s a good deal all together.
This is a good dinner to make when you have the dreadful take out cravings that come every once in a while.. or if you just really want some orange tofu to go with some of your stray veggies that you bought and haven’t used. That’s why this recipe stuck around, anything goes. Broccoli, squash, cauliflower, peas, kale.. it’s endless.
