Peanut Noodle Stir Fry

16 May

Lets be honest, peanut butter rocks.

There is something about a huge spoonful of peanut butter that just seems to make life so much better.

Peanut butter on oatmeal.
Peanut butter on yogurt.
Peanut butter on toast.

You get the picture.

We decided peanut butter on noodles would probably be pretty delicious too; we were right.

This looked and smelled amazing and we almost didn’t want to stop and take a picture…but we decided it was too good not to share.

Teriyaki Tofu

5 Oct

After a crazy day filled with classes and school work we always like to save enough time to make a nice homemade dinner. Tonight was no different. What did we decide on.. Tofu Stir Fry!

Ingredients:
2 servings of firm tofu
1 pineapple ring
2 cups of zucchini
1/4 of a red bell pepper
2 tablespoons of Organic Ville Island Teriyaki Marinade
2 cups of broccoli
1/2 cup of brown rice
Pam cooking spray

Directions:
1. Spray a large frying pan with Pam and add the zucchini wedges and bell pepper and cook on medium heat for about 8 minutes

2. Spray a smaller frying pan with Pam and add the 2 servings of tofu cubed and cook for about 5 minutes on each side.

3. Meanwhile cook the brown rice according to the directions on the package. (I swear by simmering the rice covered for 20 minutes on low and then remove it from the heat and let it sit with the lid on for 10 minutes-it always makes perfect brown rice!)

4. Once the tofu and zucchini are cooked, combine them in the large frying pan and add the pineapple ring, 2 tablespoons of teriyaki marinade and cook on low until heated and mixed thoroughly.

5. Finally serve with the brown rice and broccoli.

Enjoy!
