A healthy recipe that took me 15 minutes to assemble, even at 6am! You can prepare it fresh and take a with you a healthy meal to work. No excuses!
Why Snow peas? A healthy pea, perfect for the transition from winter to spring. The peas are not fully grown, yet sweet. The pods are very slightly bitter and crunchy. Low on starch. Rich in fiber, Vitamins A, C, K and Folic acid.
Why Tofu? Protein rich! In addition, studies have shown that regular consumption is beneficial in preventing heart disease. The isoflavonoids have been shown to reduce "bad" cholesterol (LDL), lower pro-inflammatory markers in the body, support the treatment of hot flashes and produce nitric oxide which improves blood vessel elasticity and contributes to normal blood pressure.
A pack of fresh Snow peas (exactly the season and yes, with the pods)
A packet of hard-textured tofu
Marinate/Sauce: 2 tablespoons light or dark Miso, 2 tablespoons soy sauce, 2 tablespoons Mirin, 1 garlic clove
How to make?
Cut the tofu into sticks about 2 cm thick.
Marinate the tofu sticks overnight in a sauce composed of miso, soy, mirin and garlic
In the morning, roast the tofu fingers in a strip frying pan (after brushing with a little olive oil).
Steam the Snow peas for about 10 minutes, keeping them crisp and crunchy
Serve as in the pictures above :)
