Wishy-Washy Wednesday

The trouble with being a food blogger is that sometimes, I’m just too darn creative.

I spend my spare time day dreaming about recipes I could whip up, and before you know it, it’s 7:00 PM on a Wednesday, and dinner has yet to be made.

Another exercise in using what I had on hand was in order. Life is busy these days.  Don’t judge.

The on-hand ingredients were kale and tofu.  You’ve been warned.  Go ahead and stop reading if you’re bored to tears.

The best part about tofu is that it really doesn’t take long for it to absorb any flavor you might decide to marinate it in.

The best part about kale is that anything tastes good smothered in olive oil and garlic.
Italian Tofu and Kale
  • 1 block tofu, cubed
  • 1 bunch kale, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • Balsamic Vinegar
  • Lemon Juice
  • Italian Seasoning
  • Olive Oil
  • Garlic Salt, to taste
Marinate the tofu in all ingredients (minus the olive oil).  It doesn’t take long, but the longer the better.
Fry tofu in olive oil, and add in kale until dark green and wilted.  Season with garlic salt.
Jot down note to be better about meal planning next week, and to do some serious grocery shopping, and also to consider eating meat again (tofu is getting a little old).

Meat-less, but kale-ful.  All in all a good meal which I may or may not have consumed in my pajamas.

  1. This looks really good, and I love balsamic vinegar! This made me laugh though because you sound like me...I daydream about recipes all day and then it's already night time and I find myself making dessert while making dinner on the SIDE lol. It's actually a bit of a problem.
