Coconut pasta with peas and crispy tofu!
Can’t overstate how good of a combo this is, particularly whenever I’m craving something extra comforting.
In general, I looove tofu and always have a lot of it in my fridge because it’s such a versatile ingredient that can taste delicious when cooked correctly. Although sometimes I snack on it as it is, with just a pinch of salt, but getting creative with it is deffo a much better idea lol.
