The last few weeks have been terribly busy, so my blogging isn’t keeping up as much as I’d like it to. Ahhhh life…and Instagram. I blame being able to post instant pictures with fun filters for being lazy in blogging LoL ;-). JK. So I did some cooking this week, finally. Nothing major, just easy meal preps that took both like 15 minutes to make. Here are the recipes below. I hope everyone is doing well, and enjoying this unseasonably warm weather in Michigan!. 70 today and it’s mid November. Woot woot! Enjoy!
Tofu Sliders & Tuna Casserole
Pretzel bun sliders
Marinated tofu ( I bought these prepackaged from Meijer) + your favorite cheese
Fresh avocado and sliced tomato
Sautéed onions and jalapeños
Side of beans and rice
- Sautee the onions and peppers. Then add the tofu squares, cooking for about 5-10 minutes on each side. You could marinate your own tofu in your favorite sauce, but I haven’t done it myself yet. The pre-marinated kind is all I have done so far, but I will try marinading my own sometime!
- Add cheese on top of the tofu, letting it melt.
- Place fresh avocado and sliced tomato on half of your bun.
- Add your cooked tofu with cheese, then top with onions and peppers.
- Add your favorite side! This time I did a quick beans and rice. The possibilities are endless 🙂
I like this recipe because it’s a quick and easy alternative to red meat. I have eliminated chicken, beef, and pork from my diet so I am always looking for new ways to incorporate vegetarian proteins into my meals.
Tuna Casserole Ingredients:
Homemade mac and cheese (noodles, cheese, milk)
Sautéed onions, mushrooms, tomato, and spinach
2 packages of tuna (I used Starkist sweet and savory packs)
- Cook your mac and cheese as you normally would. If you don’t want to make it yourself, a box of mac and cheese of your choice works!
- Sauté the onions, mushrooms, tomato, and spinach in a separate pan.
- Combine this all together, and add your tuna. Let it simmer for 5-10 minutes.
- Add more cheese if you like.
- Top with avocado it you like…I did 🙂
I like this second recipe a lot because it saves on so much sodium from the boxed tuna helper, and gives you fresh veggies with avocado! Bam. Your own tuna skillet!
