Vegan Mexican Recipe ¦ blog.friendthatcooks.com

Coriander crusted tofu

Here’s a great recipe idea for a Mexican vegan dinner. For one of our weekly meal prep customers, I coated some extra firm tofu with ground coriander, salt and pepper, then pan seared it in some corn oil. I served it with some steamed quinoa that has butter, lime juice and chopped cilantro stirred into it with a touch of salt. It also has a salad made with steamed corn off the cob, chopped red pepper, chopped onion, cilantro, lime juice, agave syrup and cumin.

What do you do with a 2lb Porterhouse? ¦ blog.friendthatcooks.com

What do you do with a monster 2.3 lb Porterhouse t-bone steak that’s as big as a chicken? Crust it in some herbs, pan sear it, and finish it in the oven for a few minutes at 425 degrees. Then, you serve it with some whipped potatoes and steamed green veggies.

Fresh apple pie with flaky butter crust

I made this pie from fresh apples, and folded a LOT of cold butter into this crust to make it nice and flaky. I sprinkled some brown sugar on top to add some color and crunch.
