Tofu Steaks with Mushrooms and Vegetables

My youngest is a tofu-a-holic and second only to miso soup, this is one of her favorite ways to eat the protein-packed bean curds. I love it because it comes together fast and other than making a pot of rice, all the ingredients are prepared in one skillet. This is my adaptation of a popular Cooking Light recipe, substituting regular mushrooms for shiitake but for a more authentic Asian verison, try the shiitake or even oyster mushrooms.


Beef and Broccoli Lo Mein

Who needs Chinese takeout when you can whip up this 5 star recipe. It won’t be dripping in grease or laced with msg, rather it’ll be high on flavor and freshness, and made with high quality ingredients. This is one of my family’s favorite meals. Don’t forget the chopsticks!
