What is the best part about going to a fancy restaurant? Seeing the food arrive, beautifully plated in front of you, to a few seconds later, mush it up on your plate. Eating out is the best. The nice ambiance, and that pretty food, but let’s be honest – food tastes so much better when it’s all mushed together, getting all of those yummy flavors combined.
So, I’m about to give you just that. A lovely recipe, that’s already mushed up! Might not be the prettiest for the eye to behold, but yummy? Oh, hell yes!
The heavenly mush we are creating is a teriyaki spiced tofu, black bean, guacamole paradise. And if you’re feeling lazy, you can buy half of the ingredients ready made! Win, win, and win.
What you’ll need:
Guacamole, you can by a ready made guacc or make your own:
1/2 tomato (cut out the the juicy middle part, and just use the harder part)
Pinch of turmeric
Pinch of curry powder
(If you’re an onion and garlic lover, add in some red onion and garlic)
We all know how to make guacamole, just smash all the ingredients together.
Teriyaki Tofu, can be bought pre-made at Trader Joe’s, or made yourself:
1 block firm tofu
3 table spoons soy sauce
1 table spoon rice vinegar
2 teaspoons sesame oil
1 tablespoon agave or maple syrup for sweetener
1 teaspoon ground ginger
To drain your tofu of as much water as possible, you place it in between two paper towels, and place a weight on it for about 30 min. While you’re doing this you whip up the remaining ingredients for the teriyaki sauce. Cut your tofu into small squares and mix it together with the teriyaki sauce. You can now either fry the tofu in a pan with some oil, or bake them in the oven on 425 for about 25-30 min.
1 can black beans
1/4 red bell pepper
Lavash bread / pita bread
Once your tofu and guacamole is ready, you simply drain your canned beans, chop up some red bell pepper and greens, and throw it all together. Voila! A lovely mush is made and ready to be enjoyed. Serve with some lavash bread, or pita bread.
