Tofu, Veggies, Brown Rice...and the Best Dressing Ever.
I get fixated on certain food items. This dressing for the rice I have eaten so much of - I have prepared rice and veggies many times just as an excuse to eat it.
Oddly, for me, it works well only with brown rice. I like to add sunflower seeds and tamari almonds for extra crunch. As for vegetables, roasted carrots are great, flowery greens also (like brocoli). I roasted some carrots, green and red peppers, zucchini, rapini in a bit of sesame oil and salt.
The tofu I marinated for 20 minutes in a mix of soy, tamari and sambal olek.
I hope I get the proportions right for the dressing for those of you who will actually try it at home!!! Give me feedback.
