Tofu Stir-Fry: An Easy Vegetarian Dinner Recipe

Hey there, fellow foodies! Today, I want to share with you one of my go-to recipes for a quick and easy vegetarian dinner – tofu stir-fry!

First of all, let me just say that tofu can be a bit intimidating if you’ve never cooked with it before. But trust me, once you get the hang of it, it’s a versatile and delicious ingredient that can be used in so many different ways.

For this stir-fry, you’ll need:

  • 1 block of firm tofu
  • 3-4 cups of mixed veggies (I like to use bell peppers, broccoli, and carrots)
  • 1/4 cup of soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons of honey
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon of grated ginger
  • 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

First, you’ll want to press the tofu to remove any excess water. I usually wrap it in paper towels and place a heavy object on top for about 15-20 minutes. Then, cut the tofu into small cubes.

Next, heat up your vegetable oil in a large skillet or wok over medium-high heat. Add in your minced garlic and grated ginger, and stir for about 30 seconds until fragrant.

Then, add in your mixed veggies and stir-fry for about 5-7 minutes until they start to soften. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Move the veggies to one side of the pan and add in your cubed tofu on the other side. Let the tofu cook for a few minutes on each side until it starts to turn golden brown.

In a small bowl, whisk together your soy sauce and honey until combined. Pour this mixture over the tofu and veggies, and stir everything together until everything is coated in the sauce.

Let everything cook for another 2-3 minutes until the sauce has thickened up a bit and everything is heated through.

And that’s it! You can serve this tofu stir-fry over rice or noodles, or just enjoy it on its own. It’s a great way to get in some extra veggies and plant-based protein, and it’s so easy to customize with whatever veggies you have on hand.

Pan-Seared Salmon with Lemon Butter Sauce

Hey guys, I wanted to share with you one of my favorite dishes to cook at home – Pan-Seared Salmon with Lemon Butter Sauce. It’s a simple recipe that’s easy to make, yet it tastes like it came straight out of a fancy restaurant.

First, I start by seasoning my salmon fillets with salt and pepper. Then, I heat up some olive oil in a pan over medium-high heat. Once the oil is hot, I add the salmon fillets to the pan, skin side down.

I let the salmon cook for about 4-5 minutes on each side, until it’s golden brown and crispy on the outside, and tender and flaky on the inside. While the salmon is cooking, I prepare the lemon butter sauce.

To make the sauce, I melt some butter in a small saucepan over low heat. Once the butter is melted, I add some minced garlic and cook it for a minute or so, until it’s fragrant. Then, I add some fresh lemon juice, lemon zest, and a pinch of salt and whisk everything together until it’s well combined.

Once the salmon is done cooking, I remove it from the pan and place it on a plate. Then, I pour the lemon butter sauce over the salmon and garnish it with some fresh parsley.

The result is a delicious and flavorful dish that’s perfect for a weeknight dinner or a special occasion. The salmon is perfectly cooked and the lemon butter sauce adds a bright and tangy flavor that complements the fish perfectly.

I hope you guys give this recipe a try and let me know how it turns out! It’s definitely one of my go-to dishes when I want something quick, easy, and delicious.

Creamy Mushroom Chicken Recipe

Hey there foodies!

I just wanted to share with you my latest culinary triumph – Creamy Mushroom Chicken! It’s a recipe that I stumbled upon in an old cookbook and decided to give it a try. Let me tell you, it did not disappoint!

First things first, let me give you the ingredients:

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 pound mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Now, onto the cooking!

I started by seasoning the chicken breasts with salt and pepper, and then browning them in a pan with some olive oil. Once they were cooked through, I set them aside to rest.

Next, I added some butter to the same pan and sautéed some diced onions and minced garlic until they were fragrant. Then, I added the sliced mushrooms and cooked them until they were tender.

Once the mushrooms were done, I added a cup of chicken broth and let it simmer for a few minutes. Then, I added a cup of heavy cream and let that simmer as well.

To thicken up the sauce a bit, I mixed a tablespoon of cornstarch with some cold water and added it to the pan. I stirred it in and let it cook for a few more minutes until the sauce had thickened up to my liking.

Finally, I added the chicken breasts back to the pan and let them warm up in the sauce for a few minutes.

And voila! Creamy Mushroom Chicken was born.

I served it over some rice and it was absolutely delicious. The creamy sauce was the perfect complement to the tender chicken and earthy mushrooms. It was a hit with my family and I’m sure it will be with yours too!

So, if you’re looking for a new chicken recipe to try out, give Creamy Mushroom Chicken a shot. You won’t regret it!
