First thing this morning Ed went out to pick the snow peas and get them into the fridge. It made us happy all day to know we would be having one of our absolute favorite summer dishes for dinner tonight! Both pea beds are producing now. Maybe I will actually make something different with snow peas this year too, but this dish is fabulous!
This recipe dates back to our vegetarian days. Now I realize not everyone likes or even wants to try tofu, but this Sesame Baked Tofu With Snow Peas and Almonds would be a great place to start. I have made this with chicken and it was delicious, but the original is still our favorite! The recipe is from The Moosewood Kitchen Garden Cookbook, pg. 235. I love this book! I might have scanned the page directly from my cookbook. I have used it so much that the pages are loose. However, I don't know what the current rules are for that sort of thing and I may have spilled soy sauce on this recipe once or twice. I wouldn't want anyone to see that! I'll be picking more peas on Tuesday morning. I can hardly wait!
