Following is a list of things Matty B doesn’t like. Cry for me a little in your heart…
All condiments other than salsa,(Including all salad dressings, ketchup, mayo, mustard and hummus), all soups, most vegetables, all berries, eggs, tofu, baked potatoes, and all meat products.
I found this link for the top 25 most hated foods. Other than the meat products, I like them all!
One of my top favorites from the haters list?
Matty B shares the sentiments of the haters. And the biggest complaints about tofu? The weird texture and the lack of flavor.
There’s a right way and a wrong way to prepare tofu.
1. You must press it. Fancy people have a tofu press. I have paper towels and heavy books. The idea is to press the moisture out so you can marinate the tofu and add some flavor.
2. Marinate. I used salsa since I was going for a Mexican flavor, but soy sauce works well too.
3. Cornstarch is your friend. I’ve used lots of “breading” type materials. Cornstarch with some seasonings works like a charm.
Look at my ugly frying pan. I need a shopping spree.
Flour tortilla with taco tofu, avocado, tomatoes, corn and Angela’s pumpkin Cheez sauce.
Of the above ingredients listed, Matty B would eat the tortilla and the corn. Preferably not touching.
I give that man a harder time than he deserves. Following is a list of the things Matty B does like that I really do appreciate:
Pesto, falafel, enchiladas, pasta, broccoli, peas, bananas, apples, carrots, samosas, curry, mashed potatoes and rice.
And high fructose corn syrup.
Good thing I’m so healthy. In 30 years when he’s old and frail with brittle bones, I’ll be able to take care of him. Maybe he should buy me a new frying pan to pay me back.
1/2 block pressed tofu
1/2 cup salsa
1/4 cup cornstarch
1 tsp taco seasoning
1 TBS oil
Cut tofu into chunks. Marinate pressed tofu chunks in salsa for 30+ minutes. Combine cornstarch and taco seasoning. Drain tofu and roll in cornstarch mixture. Fry in oil on all sides until crispy and brown.
