2 Recipes!

So sleepy...Anyway here's 2 recipes:

LUNCH: Made from the random survivors of our fridge-not-working ordeal.
Stir-fries are good for those random remnants of groceries left over at the end of the week type days when you have to produce something out of nothing.

"Fried Rice" with Tofu, Cabbage, and Zucchini
  • 1 package firm tofu
  • 16 oz bag green cabbage, shredded
  • 1 zucchini (can be replaced by whatever vegetables are handy)
  • 1/2 cup brown rice
  • sesame oil
  1. Slice vegetables. Saute in small amount of water or 1/2 tsp oil til cooked thru - depends on what veggies you use. Sprinkle with pepper.
  2. Meanwhile, cook brown rice.
  3. Transfer vegetables to a plate and add tofu to the pan, mashing it up. The mashed tofu replaces the egg in the usual fried rice - it's actually very similar in texture and taste to egg white.
  4. Add everything back to pan, and rice, and sprinkle with reduced sodium soy sauce
  5. When ready to serve, pour a very small amount of sesame oil on top - Trader Joe's has a delicious "Wasabi drizzling sauce" that's got some bite.
Here's one of the practice problems I encountered today:
"Curly buys a 6 month 50 strike-price European call option from Moe with a premium of $7.43. The risk-free interest rate is 6.5% convertible semiannually. For what spot price at expiration is Moe's profit zero?"
I guess it's nice that they at least try to keep it amusing.


Just a simple tomato sauce rotini dish with some steamed "dinosaur" kale. And of course salad.

Tomato Sauce (with TVP - follow link to see TVP to ground beef nutrition comparison)
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 large carrot, cut lengthwise then chopped
  • 1/2 red and 1/2 green bell pepper, chopped
  • 28 oz can crushed tomatoes, low sodium
  • 1 cup TVP (textured vegetable protein)
  • bay leaf, oregano, basil, garlic powder, pepper
  1. Heat oil and saute next 3 ingredients about 5 minutes
  2. Add crushed tomatoes and spices
  3. Partially cover pot and simmer for at least 30 minutes
  4. Add TVP and simmer an additional 5 minutes
This was served with 5 ounces of whole-wheat rotini between the two of us, and there were leftovers. I don't think I ever eat more than 2 oz of processed grains at a time now. Oh, and some green beans were cut up and tossed in right before serving because they were there.
