What am I bringing to the Criminal Minds Summer Pot Luck Party?
Fellow bloggers, you’re in for a tasty treat.
Being a crime writer, I immediately thought of bringing “mystery” meat. Or maybe a rare, bloody steak. But I don’t really eat much meat, so I think I’ll bring a vegetarian dish.
Of my own creation.
Here’s the recipe, for those of you who won’t be able to make the Pot Luck Party:
One small onion, diced
One pound block of extra firm tofu, diced
Half pound of frozen corn kernels, give or take.
Green or red pepper, diced, optional
A few tablespoons chopped or minced garlic. Or not.
Heat 2 Tbs oil in wok or large skillet. Stir-fry onion (and pepper, if you’re using it) on high heat for about 2 minutes. Add tofu, and stir-fry another minute. Add corn. Dump in mustard, ketchup, BBQ sauce, and hot sauce, to taste, stirring well. Cook until everything’s nice and hot, about 5 more minutes.
Serve over rice or noodles. If the thought of eating a vegetarian meal unnerves you, toss in some leftover cooked chicken or shrimp.
The best thing about this dish? Not everybody likes tofu, so there’s more for me!
See you at the party! And don’t forget the sunscreen!
