Last week, I went to Chinatown and scored some great deals! I have a post coming up that will explain how I'm finding it EASIER to eat for $3.33 in Boston! I was initially worried it wouldn't be possible, but I am eating better than ever thanks to Fairfoods (www.fairfoods.org), Haymarket, Trader Joes and Chinatown!
3 lbs 6 oz firm tofu 3.59Ginger 1.28
63 oz soy sauce 2.99
BTW, I am keeping track of my shopping list and prices for the month HERE. You can find Octobers list and prices HERE.
While my favorite tofu ever is Trader Joes Extra Firm, I couldn't pass up this deal and I'm glad I did. This tofu was super fresh (although not firm at all.. but roasting it firmed it up and kept it nice a juicy at the same time!
No need to dirty a bowl, just drizzle some toasted sesame oil on a sheet pan, place the tofu on top and drizzle with soy sauce, garlic powder and black pepper. Flip the tofu and roast for 30 minutes and 400. Halfway through, flip the tofu and season the other side with soy sauce, garlic powder and pepper. Lemon Pepper would be really good if you have it!.. and some cumin would be lovely as well.
I also scored asparagus in my $2 Produce Bag, so I roasted it up .. super simple. Same method: Coat with a bit of oil, soy sauce, garlic powder and pepper. Roast for 20-30 minutes.
I made this amazing Kale Salad and topped it with the tofu, asparagus and my Chipotle Hummus (I made it with white beans this time!)
This may have been one of the best things I've eating in a long, long time!
