Ginger Sesame Noodles with Broccoli
Last week I pretty much stuck to Robin Robinson’s Quick-Fix Vegetarian as my guide for cooking dinner for the week. Thursday night I finished the week off with the “Ginger Sesame Noodles with Broccoli”. I have probably now featured about five broccoli-centric meals on this blog, and I’m sure D has pretty much had enough of this vegetable (side note – I didn’t eat broccoli until a year ago), however it’s versatile and quick to cook.
Prep time for this meal was very quick, especially since it suggests tossing the broccoli in with the linguine towards the end of its cooking process. I followed the recipe pretty closely, except I didn’t have mirin, and I added a little ginger powder and crispy pressed tofu to the mix during the stir frying at the end.
I found this meal incredibly delicious and satisfying. The flavors were well balanced, not at all spicy nor bland. I think this broccoli-centric asian inspired dish was more successful than the last (which we rated as a bit on the sweet side). I’d return to this meal and make NO modifications, aside from adding the tofu as I did.
I have not so great plans for dinner this week – mostly things I am throwing together from the cabinets and freezer (e.g., tofu fajitas tonight, potato & onion pierogies tomorrow, and pasta on Thursday). Stay tuned for my D.C. food and drink update!
