Asparagus and Bean Curd with Thai Red Curry.

  
This is another recipe that is about the method and not necessarily the ingredients. What I mean is that this is a really basic recipe where the ingredients can be changed to your liking while using the same seasoning (or similar seasonings) but using the same simple stir-fry method to prepare them. Anyhow, this is really easy to make and super delicious.

Asparagus and Bean Curd with Thai Curry
Makes 4 servings

1 package extra firm tofu, drained
3 tablespoons vegetable oil, plus extra to oil a pan
1 onion, sliced
1 red bell pepper, sliced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 pound asparagus, trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces
2 tablespoons red Thai curry
¼ chicken or vegetable broth
2 tablespoons soy sauce
12 leaves fresh basil, course chopped

Preheat an oven to 400F. Dice the tofu and spread it onto a lightly oiled baking sheet. Bake the tofu for about 30 minutes, turning it every ten minutes, or until lightly browned. Remove the tofu from the oven and set aside. Heat the 3 tablespoons vegetable oil in a heavy skillet over medium-high heat, then add the sliced onion and bell pepper; stir-fry for a couple minutes, then add the garlic and cook a couple minutes longer. Add the asparagus, cook for a minute or two, then add the red curry, mixing it with the vegetables. Add the cooked tofu to the pan, along with the vegetable broth and soy sauce. Bring to a boil, tossing all the ingredients together, then stir in the basil and remove from the heat.

For about a month now I've been wondering what the hell these were hanging off the cucumber vines in my garden. When I googled orange cucumber I found that there are/were multitudes wondering the same thing. It also seems that most, like me, thought they were planting pickling cucumbers. As it turns out (from the best that I can tell) these are a somewhat new crossbred variety designed to be loaded with vitamins. To read short article about them at the website of the USDA click here. To see a photo of them compared to pickling cucumbers (what I thought I was planting) click here. They are interesting looking...and tasty, too...they have an almost acidic, lemony aftertaste to them...I s…

I eat a lot of bread; I always have. I eat bread virtually with every meal, and thus I feel that I am living proof that bread does not make a person fat. I find it odd that humans have been consuming bread in one form or another for something like 6 thousand years...and all of a sudden it is considered fattening. The problem, I think, is lifestyle and the quality of the bread you consume...I'll admit …

Ezekiel Bread...my interpretation

I've posted recipes for this bread--or variations of it--in the past on numerous occasions, but the two most popular are here and here. Those two posts, in fact, draw the largest amount of visitors to this blog everyday (through search engines, I imagine). Yup, I can carry things on my bike until I'm blue in the face, and talk about quotes and all things spiritual...but the topic that gets the most hits are my recipes for Ezekiel Bread.

This post is a little different in that I made the bread at home (opposed to at work in a commercial kitchen), and I did not use any refined (white) flour; just whole wheat. And for that reason the recipe is slightly different than the others (a printable recipe follows the pictures). This one, I believe, is more true...refined flour was unknown in biblical times. But I'm getting ahead of myself. In this post I also wanted to offer some of my personal views on Ezekiel bread and its recipes in general (I know what you're thinking...here…
