Grilled Tofu, Farro, Braised Chard, Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Pears

Dinner 10/28

Grilled Tofu


Braised Chard

Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Pears

A little bit of this, a little of that...

Farro is an underrated grain, with a nutty flavor and barley-like texture, it does a great job of absorbing the extra marinade (1/4 cup olive oil, 1/4 cup tamari, 2 cloves of garlic smashed, 1 tbs. agave, 1 tbs. ketchup and pepper to taste) from the grilled tofu.

The diced chard stems were wok-fried in 1 tsp. of olive oil on low heat for 3-4 minutes, and then the rough chopped leaves were added, with salt and pepper and tossed for a few minutes. Put the lid on and don't even look at at it for 5-6 minutes. Toss again, add a splash of tamari, put the lid back on for another 3-4 minutes. Remove the lid, check for seasoning, serve hot.

The Brussels sprouts and pears were tossed with 1 tbs. of olive oil, salt and pepper to taste and roasted for 20 minutes at 450F.
