I’m so excited! I won this darling hoodie for healthy recipe contributions for the month of August from my favorite active wear and crossfit programming company, Constantly Varied Gear. Silky soft, lighweight, warm, and cozy! I’m ready for leggings, hoodies, fire pit time, and warm mugs of deliciousness!

I post two or three meals a day on there. Certainly keeps me busy! Right now, we’re in the middle of an 800 gram per day produce challenge. I saw a few people worrying out loud about budgetary concerns with the 800 gram challenge. This should totally be for everybody. So, I thought I’d focus on really pocket friendly produce plates for a few days. Tofu, carrots, and celery are way cheaper than McDonald’s! 😀 Buffalo wing tofu and veggies with homemade gorgonzola dip and roasted sweet potatoes. Yummy as heck and there’s 574 grams of produce on that plate.

Elizabeth Orsini’s (Grilled Teriyaki) Tofu Broccoli Salad and cookbook review: From Garden to Grill

Summer grilling season has arrived! I’ve been playing in a great produce-centered grilling book,  From Garden to Grill: Over 250 Vegetable-based Recipes for Every Grill Master. My review of the book is below, but first I wanted to share a terrific grilled teriyaki tofu and broccoli dinner with you. This recipe is vegan, but the book itself is vegetarian with a lot of suggestions of how to make recipes vegan, paleo, gluten-free, or how to add meat. It’s delicious and super filling, so no side dishes are required. Perfect dinner on the patio. You just need a few string lights overhead and icy Pellegrino, lemon cucumber water, or lovely white wine to go with it.

If you’re new to tofu, a nice dish is all about the drain. Cut it into chunks as the recipe instructs, wrap it in a lot of paper towel, set a plate on it, and set a big can on that and let it sit for 15-30 minutes. Or, I sometimes cheat, and just stick it in my panini press for the same amount of time. Saves, paper, too. Niiice. In this recipe, I threaded the tofu on soaked skewers, so I’d have less to turn on the grill.
