I hope you are enjoying your weekend!!!
It is raining cats and dogs here. There is no light to be seen... A dreary day in Kansas.
I know it is hard to be happy on a cloudy day, but I am jubilant! We finally finished painting Kaiti's bedroom, I am starting to get ahead on the laundry, the kitchen is semi clean, and my Golden Bell Forsythia is staring to bloom! Spring is with in reach!
But first, I must tell you that due to the horrible weather, all of my pictures are...well, kinda blah.. There is not enough light out to illuminate this house, and I have dim lights....
So I must apologize in advance for the poor picture quality.
On to the food!
I have had a recipe for about 3 years just laying around. I find it all over. In the office, in the bedroom, in the bathroom....? Yep everywhere. So I figured maybe it was an sign that I should make it. It is called Cajun Tofu Burgers and it said it was excellent....
Now I should tell you, I am pretty hard to impress. I am down right snooty when it comes to food impressing me, so being the curious girl I am, I set out to see if it made the grade.
Along with it, I wanted something exciting. I have never made sweet potatoes into anything.... but sweet potatoes, so I thought a southwestern hash sounded pretty awesome. Emma was here today so I put her to work making the hash. I also had some corn on the cob in the freezer leftover from last summer and I knew that would be a good veggie to go with our spicy dinner!
Tofu and bread crumbs added with the veggies.
Southwestern sweet potato hash
2 Large sweet potatoes, washed, peel left on, shredded in the food processor
1 red bell pepper, diced
2 medium jalapenos, seeded and sliced
2 cloves of roasted garlic, minced
1 medium onion, cut in half and sliced thin
Montreal steak seasoning to taste
Cracked black pepper to taste
Red sea salt to taste
Cajun seasoning to taste
Preheat oven to 450 degree's
Place ingredients in a large bowl, season to taste with spices. Drizzle with oil to lightly coat.
Bake for about 45 minutes, making sure to turn your potatoes so they do not burn.
The making of Cajun tofu burgers: Water chestnuts, carrot and celery in the food processor
Place ingredients except oil in a food processor bowl and blend until well mixed. Heat oil over medium high heat in a large nonstick frying pan. Form 6 large or 18 sliders, flatten burger and brown for 10 minutes on each side. Serve warm with lettuce on a whole wheat bun or mini cocktail buns .
