Sick but still Hungry
Well, Santa brought me a cold for Christmas, that old jerk. Wednesday was my first day back to work after a lovely week in Savannah, Georgia with Preston and his family. His aunt and uncle were the most welcoming and fun people, and his aunt is a gourmet chef to boot. We enjoyed 4 days of wine, good conversation and great food. What a wonderful way to spend the holiday!
At work yesterday, I was a bit foggy in the head from the cold and not very hungry at all. But then at three PM hunger struck like a bolt of lightning. I could only think of one thing – BBQ tofu pizza. So at 5pm, I picked up some whole wheat pitas and a small hunk of cheese and headed home.
The ingredients are simple: Whole Wheat Pita, Tofu, your favorite BBQ sauce, fresh spinach, cheese and red bell peppers.
The process is easy. Turn your oven to 350 and toss the pita in. In a pan, crumble and cook the tofu, then add the BBQ sauce and simmer.
Pull the pita out of the oven when it’s crisp, then layer it with your tofu, some shredded cheese and chopped peppers.
Stick it back in the oven for a few minutes, enough to let the cheese melt. Finally, top with fresh chopped spinach. I like to put it in the oven for a few minutes to let the spinach warm up and wilt a bit.
The finished product looks something like this:
This simple dish is good with a nice glass of chardonnay. Hopefully you’re better at opening wine bottles than I am.
Hate when that happens!
