Put back the Salt Shaker and………

When a savory dish needs a little kick, try a squeeze of lemon instead of salt. A hit of citrus can make the whole recipe come to life.

This week’s “Meatless Monday” Recipe of the Week is – Mediterranean Tofu. Take your Tofu and kick it up a bit with this week’s recipe. It’s from the CooksRecipes website (https://www.cooksrecipes.com/index.html) which has a huge selection of recipes to please all tastes and cuisines. Enjoy and Make 2019 a Healthy One!

Mediterranean Tofu
Here’s a great way to serve tofu in the summer, with the season’s flavorful tomatoes.

Recipe Ingredients:
2 (16-ounce) tubs firm tofu, drained
1 tablespoon light olive oil
Salt
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 cups diced ripe tomato (make the dice fairly small)
1/4 cup oil-cured sun-dried tomatoes, cut into strips, with a little of their liquid
Juice of 1/2 lemon, or to taste
Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
A few leaves fresh basil, cut into strips

Cooking Directions:
1 – Cut each block of tofu into 6 equal slabs. Blot very well between layers of clean tea-towel or paper towels. Spread the light olive oil over the surface of a 12-inch square griddle or extra-wide skillet and heat. Arrange the slabs of tofu in a single layer, and cook over medium-high heat until golden on both sides. Sprinkle the tofu with salt.
2 – Meanwhile, heat the extra-virgin oil in a smaller skillet. Add the garlic and sauté over low heat until golden. Add the fresh and dried tomatoes and lemon juice. Cook over medium heat just until the fresh tomato wilts a bit and is well heat through, about 2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
3 – To serve, fan out 3 slices of the tofu on each place and divide the tomato-garlic sauce over them. Top each serving with a few strips of basil. Serve at once.
Makes 4 servings.

Roasted Whole Chicken………

 

To add flavor and keep a whole chicken moist during roasting, gently lift the breast skin, and tuck slices of lemon or orange underneath. Brush with oil, season, and place in a hot oven. Use unwaxed lemons if possible.

When Poaching Eggs…..

 

Vinegar, or even lemon, helps the egg whites to set more quickly and we get fewer wispy bits when you add a tablespoon or two to the simmering water.

Somethings Fishy…….

 
If your grilling or broiling thick fish steaks, marinate them for 15 minutes in lemon or lime juice before cooking. The acid from the juice cooks the flesh a bit, cutting down on the time it needs to stay on the heat so your fish is less likely to dry out.

Today’s Menu: Lemon-Parsley Baked Cod w/ Long Grain and Wild Rice, Sliced Carrots, and Whole Grain Bread

 

 

Lemon-Parsley Baked Cod 009
Started my morning off with a couple of Jennie – O Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links, Simply Potatoes Hash Browns, a slice of toasted Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread, and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Outside we ended up with 4 new inches of snow. Just as the snow we had was starting to melt we got hit again. The main roads are all clear but the side roads are still slick. I needed to go to the bank but all are closed today for President’s Day today. So I just did a few things around the house and on the computer. For dinner tonight I prepared a Lemon-Parsley Baked Cod w/ Long Grain and Wild Rice, Sliced Carrots, and Whole Grain Bread.

 

Lemon-Parsley Baked Cod 002

Another delicious and healthy recipe from the Taste of Home website! I love that site, som many great recipes. For dinner tonight I prepared a Lemon Baked Cod. I’ll need the following; 3 tablespoons lemon juice, 3 tablespoons butter (melted), 1/4 cup all-purpose flour, 1/2 teaspoon sea salt, 1/4 teaspoon paprika, 1/4 teaspoon lemon-pepper seasoning, 3 cod fillets, 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley, and 2 teaspoons grated lemon peel.

 

 

 

Lemon-Parsley Baked Cod 003

To prepare the Cod I first preheated oven to 400°. In a shallow bowl, mixed lemon juice and butter. In a separate shallow bowl, mixed flour and seasonings. Dip fillets the in lemon juice mixture, then in flour mixture to coat both sides; shake off excess. Placed the fillets in a 13×9-in. baking dish coated with Pam Cooking Spray. Drizzle with remaining lemon juice mixture. Baked 12 minutes and the fish just began to flake easily with a fork. Mix parsley and lemon peel; sprinkle over fish. The Cod came out so flavorful! The Lemon is perfect with Cod.

 

 

 
For one side dish I prepared some Uncle Ben’s Ready Rice – Long Grain and Wild Rice. It comes in a microwavable Pouch. Just heat the pouch in the microwave and serve. Love Rice! Then I also heated up a small can of Del Monte Sliced Carrots. Also had a slice of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread and a Snapple Diet Tea to drink. For dessert later a Healthy Choice Frozen Greek Yogurt.
