Ginger Cilantro Spicy Tofu In Cabbage Leaves And Hearty Minestrone
This recipe is from one of my favorite bloggers Sonal@Simply Vegetarian777 and one that really inspires me to eat wholesome healthful food. This recipe is very special, you see Sonal dedicated it to me, I was touched and thrilled and had to make it, the recipe is Ginger Cilantro Spicy Tofu in Cabbage Leaves, long name yes and long on flavor. It’s fantastic, so simple to make but really really flavorful. I love the crisp tofu, another recipe that really defines umami, it’s healthful, so flavorful and lends itself to variations in serving. Sonali has you pile the spicy tofu in cabbage leaves (I used savoy cabbage) but you can scoop it up with warm flat bread, eat over rice or on it’s own. Anyway you serve it it’s wonderful, delicious and so good for you.
I saw this recipe on the blog Bourbon and Brown Sugar for a Hearty Minestrone With Tortellini And Mini Meatballs there are some really fantastic recipes on her site but this soup spoke to me. It’s a meal in a bowl, there are meatballs, tortellini, loads and loads of vegetables and a delicious broth. It’s just perfect for a cold weather meal, it fills you up and warms you. It’s really simple to make, doesn’t take very long to cook and serves a crowd. I followed the recipe except for two things, used leeks instead of onion, only because I had a huge amount I needed to use and I added the rind of a piece of parmigiana the last 30 minutes of cooking time its an incredibly delicious soup.
