Do you ever plan/make meals by letting your grocery store visit inspire you? I do. I love to peruse the produce section and let what I see inspire my dinner plan for the week. Well, not always. I do like to have a list before I go in to keep me on track--sometimes I can get a bit carried away; especially if I go in on an empty stomach. Talk about dangerous! But, there are those days when I just let my culinary imagination run free. That's what happened with this meal:
|Sautéed Veggies over Tofu Noodles|
What inspired me with this meal? I saw some amazing looking peppers and thought they'd be tasty in an Asian-inspired dish. I also came across some tofu noodles that I hadn't tried before so I decided to give those a whirl. I must say, this dish was tastier than it looks in the pictures. Seriously, the pictures don't do it justice.
1T Olive Oil
1 Red Pepper Julienned
1/2 Onion Sliced
Handful of Spinach
1 Carrot Diced
1T Minced Garlic
Soy Sauce (a splash or two)
Tofu Noodles (1 bag)
I sautéed all of the ingredients above in the olive oil except for the tofu noodles--I prepared the tofu noodles according to the package directions which were super easy. The ingredients above make enough for one person (with a little bit of leftovers), so if you're planning on a dinner for 2+, scale each ingredient accordingly.
