1 container of extra firm tofu
1 cup of panko crumbs (or bread crumbs)
Remove tofu from container and drain water. Wrap tofu in paper towel and leave on counter to drain for 20 minutes. Pat tofu dry with a paper towel. Slice tofu in half, across the middle to make two thinner pieces. Then cut tofu into french fry sticks. Coat the tofu sticks in egg then dip into crumbs. Place on a lightly greased baking pan (I use cooking oil spray) and bake in oven on 400′ for 20-25 minutes until crispy. Serve with hot dipping sauce.
Hot Dipping Sauce:
1 cup of mayo
1 tsp. sriracha sauce sauce
Blend together. Add more sriracha sauce if desired.
*Tips&Tricks:You can make this dairy by adding grated parmesan to the crumbs and freshly chopped herbs like basil, parsley or cilantro. You can also season the crumbs with salt, pepper, cayenne pepper, chile powder or your favorite seasonings.
1 head of cauliflower
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/4 tsp. ginger
1/4 tsp. turmeric
Chop up cauliflower into pieces and wash and clean. Dry off with paper towels then place in a mixing bow. Add the olive oil and spices and mix well so it’s all combined. Then lay out in a large baking pan and place in oven on 450′. Roast for 15 minutes before turning the cauliflower over and continue roasting for another 15 – 20 minutes until tender.
Growing up, Sunday mornings meant waking up to pancakes or french toast. Sometimes I miss the wake up call of a sugary sweet breakfast waiting for me as I roll out of bed. Since I am now the “mama” in My house, I can’t just walk into the kitchen and grab a plate. I have to actually whip up the weekend treat first before digging in. Today was one of those mornings were the craving was greater than my fear of doing the dishes so I made these mini french toasts. This recipe can be used with regular challah or challah rolls. I had leftover rolls from shabs so I went with the mini version! My son was thrilled to dip his french toast into the syrup and my husband who doesn’t usually like sweet breakfasts, noshed on a few as well.
You know when you make something that you just can’t stop eating? Well for me, this is the recipe! It’s a pasta salad with a zing to it that I love! Today, we served it at my cousin’s bridal shower and it was definitely a hit. It can be served hot or cold and lasts for a few days in the fridge (although it’s best served fresh).
