Take Out Chinese Part 2: Delectable Tofu in Spicy Garlic Sauce and Perfect Fried Rice

A few weeks ago I posted my Take Out Chinese at Home recipe and I was craving it again the other night!  I wasn’t sure what to title this recipe; Joey sugeested “Best Chinese Food EVER” since he said this was his favorite Asian meal I’ve made to date; it DOES have a ring to it 😉 .  The beauty of  making this at home (besides saving a little $$ from eating out) is you know exactly what ingredients you’re using and have the satisfaction of creating a beautiful nutritious meal.  I used chioggia beets (another one of my favorites from Migliorelli Farm) in my fried rice and steamed their greens to balance and complete the meal.  These beets are uniquely beautiful with their red and white stripes.

Take Out Chinese at Home (V, GF,)

I made this dinner at my parents’ house last night.  I took a trip with my dad to Migliorelli Farm stand which just so happens to be right down the road (so convenient!) and was in awe of their beautiful harvest (thank you for the harvest bounty, Dad!).  I made this meal with all local farm-fresh vegetables: string beans, corn, scallions, and beautiful purple haze carrots.  My Mom was a fantabulous help in the kitchen, I can only take credit for making the fried rice!! Thank you Mom & Dad! Continue reading
