(a.k.a. MaPo Tofu: tvp, tofu, red pepper flakes, rooster sauce, garlic, ginger, sesame oil, tamari)
Seared/Steamed Snow Peas
(sesame oil, tamari, scallions, pepper)
Spicy Ramen Noodle Soup
(even .79 noodles can look good in a nice bowl)
Liz wanted spicy food, so we made the Szechuan classic Mapo Doufu (recipe from our favorite Szechuan cookbook author Mrs. Chiang). We subbed out TVP in place of the pork, but otherwise it's vegan...
The soup is one that our son picked out a while ago -- for a 12-year-old, he likes really spicy food, but even he finds this one too spicy -- but not for us ;)
