Dan Can Cook: Couscous with Roasted Pecans and spicy tomato tofu

Thursday, July 09, 2009

Couscous is one of the easiest things to cook in the morning and the little pieces of pasta are little sponges for flavor. I recommend you sauteed a little onion- shallots are better- in olive oil and then add the couscous and brown then lightly. They you just add hot water, cook for 1 minute, cover and turn off the heat. In 5 minutes the couscous will be done. I like to top it with roasted pecan powder and some nutritional yest.

Tofu. Tofu is amazing. It can be used in so many ways and I just learned of a new one. If you put tofu in a pressure cooker for a while, the water in the tofu will leech out and the tofu will have a heartier texture that is almost like gouda. The sauce is simple. It's just a dished tomato with soy sauce, fish sauce, maple syrup, red pepper powder, garlic and green onion.
