Tofu, Kale, Onion, Mushroom and Fennel Recipe!

I made a delicious dinner last night that I wanted to share:

The dish has no name, it is another one of my open up the fridge and throw something together dinners.  These are typically good, but this was was very good!  I think the fennel seed is what did it.  Anyway here is the recipe  —

Press a block of tofu

Saute in coconut oil for 15-20 minutes until the onion is barely visable

  • 1 medium onion, cut up into very small pieces
  • 1 shallot, cut up small
  • 1 stalk of celery also cut up into very small pieces
  • 2 carrots chopped

Add in and saute another 10 minutes or until the mushroom is soft

  • 1/2 a portabella mushroom cut into 1″chunks
  • 1/2 a red pepper, diced small

Add a small bunch of kale (cut up) on top of the veggies

Add water into the pan, cover and simmer until the kale softens, then mix it all together add spices, cover and continue to simmer

  • turmeric
  • ginger
  • fennel seeds (I imagine if you actually have fennel, you can cut some up and saute that instead, but I didn’t so I used seeds)

Meanwhile, cut up the pressed tofu into small pieces and brown it in more coconut oil another pan.  Once it is cooked to your liking, mix it into the pan of vegetables and spices.  Add more water to blend the spices and tofu, and simmer until the water is mostly all absorbed.

  2. It does look good. I also love any kind of leafy green vegetable. How about kalelicious for a name. 🙂

  3. This looks really good and so healthy!

  4. As a vegetarian and lover of tofu and all veggies, I appreciate this recipe. It looks yummy. I can almost smell it sizzling in the pan.

  5. I have been put on a diet where the only meat I have can have for the next 5 weeks is fish. I have not had many tofu dishes and have only tried Kale for the first time yesterday, so this might be a good time to jump in and try this out.
