Simple breakfast.

Today I had a very simple breakfast. I felt like something fresh and light this morning. I just had some pineapple, macerated strawberries (99 cents at Aldi’s), sunflower kernels, chia seeds, and fresh mint. Pretty self explanatory really. It was really tasty and exactly what I needed! This was one of the best pineapples I have had in a long time!

Toasted bread and Chutney.

First off I’m not really sure if this would be considered a Chutney or not. That’s what I’m calling it though because I didn’t know what else to call it. It had apples, tomatoes, onion, garlic, pepper, salt, mushroom broth (see last Wednesday’s post), lemon juice, paprika and kale. I cooked the onion first then added the garlic until it blossomed. After that I added everything else and let it simmer until the flavors melded together. I added the kale at the end so it kept some texture. I just sliced up some baguette, rubbed with oil and toasted until crispy and golden brown. Then I rubbed them with a garlic clove when they came out of the oven. It was a tasty little dinner.

Mushroom broth!

This week I’m sharing a broth I make from the stems of mushrooms. I don’t eat the stems usually. I prefer the caps because they are more tender. At least in my opinion they are. Maybe I’m crazy, haha. What I do though is save my mushroom stems and keep them in the freezer. When I feel I have enough I put them in a pot with some water, onion, garlic, rosemary, salt, and pepper. I used some onion tops here just because I had them. Let that simmer until I reach the flavor I want. Just depends on the size of batch you are making. No longer than an hour though. It will turn a nice light brown color that’s great for sauces and gravies.

Black pepper tofu and sticky rice.

Dinner was black pepper tofu and sticky rice. I found some black pepper sauce at a shop here and thought I would give it a try. It would of been better if I hadn’t put so much on or had the tofu mixed in with some veggies to mellow it out. It was still good though. I topped it with the green onions and that helped some. Next time I will use less or mix in some plant milk to thin it out and make it a little more mellow. I also had sticky rice with some sweet chili sauce on top. Having that helped some too. I would go back and forth between the two. It was a nice little meal all together though. You don’t know unless you try it.

All I did for the tofu was brown it in a skillet then add the sauce in and toss it around until the sauce was hot. This was a very easy meal. I’ll have to play around with making my own black pepper sauce.
