It’s a long name for a light, tasty meal. I wanted to prepare the garlic & black pepper tofu from the farmers market in a very simple way so that the flavor would come through. First I broke out the grill pan – check out my grill marks, yo.
The tofu was labelled as “firm”, but I would call it more extra-firm. It held up to the grill very well.
Served with romaine and red bell pepper strips. The contrast between the crunch of the veggies and warmth and chewy texture of the tofu was fantastic. And the tofu flavor was great! I could definitely taste the garlic and black pepper, but it wasn’t overwhelming. I will definitely be picking up more Tofu Yu products at the farmers market and highly recommend anyone else in the area give them a try. It’s not cheap by any means – this block was $4, but it’s a good portion of good tofu.
Carrot sticks with quick guacamole rounded out the meal and kept me full for hours.
Last night we stopped by a pumpkin farm that has a huge corn maze and a bunch of other activities, mostly aimed at families. We walked around the corn maze for a while, which was totally creepy. There was a petting zoo, which I normally love, but we were kind of in a hurry so I abstained. I did see a sweet goat and a little piggy through the gate. Check out all these pumpkins!
There were easily more than 15 times this amount of pumpkins. So many pumpkins.
