I’ve been thinking about this meal for about a week. I found this little packet of seasonings way back in my cupboard and it got me all excited.
Spicy Peanut Bake!
Tim and I used to LOOOVE this stuff on boneless, skinless chicken breasts. Its like Thai “Shake n Bake”, but way awesomer!
When I first found the packet I thought, “too bad we’ll never eat this again”. I started to throw it out, and then I realized I could try it on tofu.
Another thing I have been craving is okra and tomatoes. Although I’ve never really eaten okra and tomatoes in my life, and probably wouldn’t have unless I was forced … I tasted some at work a couple weeks ago and I haven’t been able to get it out of my head.
I decided to combine my cravings into one meal, along with some yellow squash that I’ve been needing to use up.
With the squash I normally sauté it in olive oil with onions and season it with lemon pepper, but today I wanted to do something different but still simple. I used this recipe.
Kind of a mushy looking lunch. But I swear it was good!
The star of the show was actually the okra and tomatoes. The tofu was good, but the seasonings were sweeter and not as spicy as I remember it being (maybe because its been in my cabinet for over a year?).
I’m taking the leftovers to work for dinner. 🙂
