….and I am back!
Isn’t that the most lukewarm way of re-introducing yourself. But alas my fagged brain couldn’t think of anything better! I was thinking of a nice thunderous entry but nothing was quite fitting the bill, so lets just be satisfied with this 🙂
The past two months have been grueling to say the least. I have been working hard and I mean really hard and have been really sleep deprived. The hard work did not exactly pay off in the end, because the result was not what I expected, but nevertheless I was satisfied with my hard work and I wouldn’t have changed a thing. I am now standing at a time in my life where evaluating my choices is necessary and that is what I am going to do.
But what is going to add flavor to my life again is blogging!I love it so much! Everyday, I read all my favorite blogs it between study sessions to ease my mind and to stay in touch with the blog world.
Our life has been very monotonous lately. Due to my situation, we had no time to enjoy good food and the gorgeous weather that has been brightening East Tennessee. But ever since the exams have ended, apart from sleeping and veg-ing out on the couch, all I have done is make good food.We have missed eating food so much. I am tired of eating boring bland food and that phase is over, so to perk up things, I have an interesting recipe to share. This dish is amazing. It is an Asian fusion recipe, so simple yet so elegant.
Vegetables in Green Gravy
- 1 cup mixed veggies
- 1 cup cauliflower
- 1/2 block tofu- cubed
- 1/2 cup chopped cilantro/corinader
- 1 Thai green chili/ serrano pepper/ jalapeno (optional)
- 2 cloves garlic
- 1 inch piece of ginger
- 3/4 cup coconut milk
- 2 cups vegetable broth
- 1 tsp lemon juice
- salt and pepper
First pulse the cilantro, chili, ginger and garlic in a mini food processor, until ground into a paste. I added some coconut milk to thin it out.
Next saute the tofu in a pan sprayed with some cooking spray. Once golden brown remove and keep aside.
In the same pan, add no more then a tsp of EVOO and the green paste. Cook for about 2 minutes.
Add the coconut milk and let it come to a light boil.
Next add the vegetable broth and season with salt and pepper and finally lemon juice. Get it to a light boil again.
Cook for 2 minutes and add the veg. in order of hardness. I added the cauliflower first. Let it cook for 3-4 minutes and then the mixed veg.
Lastly get all of the above to a boil and finish off by adding the tofu and serve
Backing to working out again!
