Earning Vegan Super Powers

Last week Doug wanted to eat healthy and light.  And following a joke from Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, we thought we'd try out for some Vegan Super Powers.  Not really sure what they are though.  We ruined our veganess by eating homemade bread spread with a healthy layer of butter.  Maybe next time.

The vegan part looked like this:

Super easy, and super tasty.  I will be making this again.  A veggie stir fry with tofu, brown rice, and Huli Huli Sauce.  Here's what I did:
1 carton extra firm tofu, cut into cubes.  Fry in pan with vegetable oil until tofu is browned on most sides.  Add 4oz of sliced mushrooms, saute until they start to look cooked.  Then add 1 bell pepper cut into strips (I used half red and half green).  When the pepper is nearly as cooked as you would like it, add 1/3 cup of Huli Huli Sauce.  Keep cooking until liquid is reduced to desired consistency.  Serve with rice (this time it was brown).

Don't mention the V word until it is decided that the meal is indeed tasty.  Mentioning that word too soon could turn away potential eaters.  Which is fine for blueberry pie, but not for stir fry.  Leftover stir fry is never as good as leftover pie.

  1. Don't tell anyone I said this about a vegan meal, but that was really tasty. Nomnomnom.
