Easy Monday Dinner

So last night, I ended up eating almost an entire bag of Salt & Vinegar Pop Chips for dinner.  Mind you, eating the entire bag only sets you back 360 calories so it’s not as bad as, say, a bag of Doritos.  I had just gotten home from the grocery store and although I bought food, I just didn’t feel like making it and the Pop Chips sounded (and tasted) very good.

So tonight, I was determined to make something with a little more nutritional value.  On a typical weeknight, I go to the gym after work but am usually starving when I get home, so I usually want something that will cook quickly.  Tonight’s meal definitely fit the bill since I basically didn’t have to do anything.  It only had four ingredients.

Brown rice, some random vegetable stir fry bag that was in desperate need of being cooked, tofu and a jar of Trader Joe’s Green Curry Simmer Sauce that I picked up on a whim the last time I was at Trader Joe’s.

I pressed the tofu for about 20 minutes and put the rice in the rice cooker while I took Murphy for a walk.  When I got back, I took out two pans, added about 1 tsp of olive oil in each and cooked the tofu in one and the veggies in the other for about 10 minutes.   After the tofu seemed to brown a little bit, I added it to the veggies and poured in about half the jar of Simmer Sauce and served it over the rice.

It was good, but needed a kick.

Much better!  And then I ate the rest of the Pop Chips.
