I decided to recreate one of my old favorites in a simple way. The only thing you change is the chicken ingredient, the rest is the same. So quick, so convenient, so healthy and so good. You can enjoy it in a pita half, traditionally with sliced bread, or with a side of crackers. Also, if tempeh is a ‘no go’ for you, you can easily use chickpeas instead with the same satisfying result.
I think we all know by now that I love enchiladas. Every time I make them I do it a different way. This time I wanted to give the potato burrito a try, and it turned out delicious paired with my homemade salsa, my homemade cheese sauce, homemade enchilada sauce (all three recipes are inside this post) and some blue corn chips. This seriously makes a ton of food, so be prepared to not cook for a while after you make this, or be prepared to have a food baby because you can’t stop yourself from eating it all the first day.
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.
I had never tried poblano peppers before I made this. Isn’t that nuts? I don’t like messing with peppers very often, do to the simple fact that you can easily burn the hell out of yourself if you get the juice or seeds under your nails and on your hands. I am always very cautious with this, and please do yourself a favor and be very aware. The result is delicious and fresh tasting whether you choose to use bell peppers or poblano.
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.
