quick and easy corn chowder
dice a medium size potatoe, and small onion
cover with water in a small pot, boil gently till cooked
add one can creamed corn,, a large pinch of curry (my secret ingredient for chowder), salt & pepper to taste
stir in some rice or soy milk for creaminess
Grilled tofu slices ,,,
make a marinade with some black bean paste (available as Asian groceries, dried black beans, garlicky, and you only need a teaspoon or tablespoon for flavour in a farily large dish,, olive oil, and minced ginger (add any other spices, flavours you like), maybe some soya sauce,,, you don't need vinegar as the tofu doesn't need to be tenderized.
Slice firm tofu about one half inch thick, and place in a baggie with the marinade - refrigerate overnight ,,,
Heat up your frying pan to medium high,,, add olive oil for frying, and saute the slices --- heat needs to be as high as possible without smoking so that they brown!
You can also do them on the grill,,, if using an outdoor grill, I always put another wire cooling rack on TOP of the bbq, crosswise so things don't fall through.
Serve up with your favorite veggs ...
