Ingredients you will need: 

 

  • Firm tofu

  • Balsamic vinegar

 

 

Steps:

  1. First, you will need one package of firm tofu.

  3. Add 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil to a pan on medium heat. 
  4. Place tofu slices in the pan and pour 2 ½ tablespoons and equal parts soy sauce over slices evenly. 
  5. Let it cook for a couple of minutes then add a touch of cilantro, then let simmer and flip the pieces of tofu. 
  6. Once the first side is starting to brown, continue to sauté, shaking the pan as the liquids soak into the tofu. 
  7. Flip a couple more times to brown each side. 

Pair with some rice or just as is, for the perfect five-minute meal.

In what seems to be a never-ending quarantine, snacking is an absolute necessity. A basic bruschetta is a classic snack, perfect for in-between online classes. 

 

Ingredients you will need: 

 

  • 1 tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 8 Roma tomatoes
  • Italian bread
  • ⅓ cup of basil
  • Salt
  • Black pepper
  • ¼ cup of parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar

 

 

Steps:

  1. Start by slicing the bread and placing it on a baking sheet and broil until golden brown 
  2. Once golden, flip. 
  3. Then, dice the tomatoes, chop the garlic and slice the basil into ribbons. 
  4. As the bread is toasting, shred some parmesan.
  5. Add the diced tomatoes, sliced basil, and parmesan into a bowl with salt and pepper (to taste) and mix.
  6. Once the bread is toasted, apply a generous layer of the tomato concoction to bread and drizzle oil and balsamic vinegar over top.
