Ethiopian Tofu, Okra, Cabbage and Tomatoes.


My spice mixtures were put to good use creating this amazing, flavorful dish! I DRY FRIED the tofu while I was prepping the vegetables and this dish came together in less than 30 minutes.  Just a note on the link I provided...  I can't just ignore the very sad update on Giovanni....  he died in 2012 at the age of 5.  His family lost their second son...  I can't even imagine the PURE HELL they are living.  It is amazing how many people they have saved through their Bone Marrow Education...  if YOU are not registered to donate, PLEASE consider it.... you can literally save and change lives..... with a simple gift...

..... I digress... back to food, even though it's hard to go back..

This Ethiopian tofu and Veggies is so awesome!.. You will love it. This recipe makes 1 LARGE serving.If you want this to serve 2, then serve it over brown rice, quinoa or millet.
