Plated Week 1 Plate 2

On New Years Day I made the Long Life Noodles with Seared Tofu, Mushrooms, and Scallions.  The recipe card said that it was a traditional New Year’s meal in China, as they are “considered good luck for a long life”.  I know that Chinese New Year’s is a different date than 1/1, but figured it would bring good luck anyway.

20150101_204640I’ve never made tofu before, so that was a first for me.  The meal was 720 calories per serving and said it would take 30-40 minutes.  It took me 34.

There was a good amount of chopping- the scallions, garlic, ginger, and mushroomies.  I should have used a larger cutting board, I ended up storing some of the items temporarily in the empty tofu container.


Yes I said mushroomies, it’s a family thing and it’s adorable.  Deal with it.  🙂


I had a hard time with the tofu, it was NOT in pretty 1′ squares despite my best efforts.  Also, I didn’t make sure to rinse AND separate the noodles, and they ended up sticking together too much.



Even so, this was a delicious nutritious meal, and taught my husband and I that you don’t always need meat.
