Sweet Hot Tofu

Hello, I hope this message finds you well on the eve of the World Cup, GO USA…oh yea that’s right they won’t be in the world cup. Well, anyway I love to watch soccer and for 4 weeks the most passionate sport will be on the worlds stage in Russia.

The leaf has been officially turned. I’m not saying that I have given up the more fatty, high caloric fare, but eating a bit healthier feels pretty awesome. So to keep that party going, I’ve prepared a super sweet hot tofu dish that is very healthy, yet incredibly delicious. And like most all the recipes I recommend, its super fast, so it’s totally EJlicious! I hope you are having a great week thus far and the best is yet to come, as always thanks for reading.

Step 3
