Hi there, guys! How’s it going? I hope you had a great weekend! I had a busy weekend with fun festivities. In my world, festivities= food!! Good thing I didn’t go too crazy and overindulge this time- I know my limits, sometimes. 😉 The past few weeks have been pretty busy, so busy that I had to take a break from my blog a couple weeks ago just to help me unwind me. My blogging schedule became inconsistent and I was having trouble finding a balance so taking a break was definitely helpful. I can finally say what I’ve been up to! I have been spending lots of time job hunting and interviewing and landed a new position! For the first time in 6 years, I will no longer be working in healthcare. It is bittersweet but I’m ready for a new challenging opportunity!
So what does this mean for TFP? I will still continue to blog and will try to remain consistent with my posts as much as I can. However, working in an entirely new field may be overwhelming for me and it will take time for me to adjust to something new. If I suddenly don’t blog as frequently, it’s not because I’m trying to be neglectful. I am just going through a transition stage. Although I am thankful for the opportunities TFP has exposed me to, unfortunately, it does not fully pay my bills. However, it is a nice hobby that I truly enjoy!
Anyway, I have a new recipe to share with you today! I created this almond butter tofu stir fry dish before and featured it on my Instagram a while back ago but I didn’t provide the recipe for it. Give it a try and let me know what you think!
Almond Butter Tofu Stir Fry
14-ounce package of tofu, cut into cubes
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 head of broccoli, chopped
1/2 of one red bell pepper, thinly sliced
1/2 of one yellow bell pepper, thinly sliced
1/2 of one white onion, sliced
1/2 cup creamy almond butter
2 tablespoons light soy sauce
1 tablespoon honey
3 tablespoons hot chili oil
- Heat olive oil and minced garlic in a wok over medium high heat. Add cubed tofu into the wok. Stir and cook until they turn a light golden color. Turn each cube over and repeat.
- Add broccoli, bell peppers, and onion into the wok and stir occasionally.
- Meanwhile, in a small bowl, mix almond butter, soy sauce, honey, and chili oil until all ingredients are thoroughly mixed.
- Pour sauce into the wok and mix well with all of the ingredients. Serve immediately over rice and enjoy!
