OK – I had a far more successful experience with this recipe than I did with my Blue Apron Vegetarian Dinners – Night One – Spring Pea Gnocchi – seen above.
If you read that post about the gnocchi, you will learn that I had a compulsive eating situation with the brie & the bread they delivered. Turns out – that bread was sent in error. I got four loaves of shitty sub bread rather than the 4 slices of bread I needed to make the grilled brie sandwiches that were 1 of the 3 meals in the package – so – I might not be making the grilled brie. Because 1) they did not send me the right bread and 2) I ate all the brie is a wine-fueled frenzy…as is outlined in the gnocchi post. But – I do love me some brie – so – keep tuned.
The gnocchi dinner was labor intensive and underwhelming for the effort (my friend, Jack, who gifted me this week of meals confirmed that the gnocchi was the hardest & least effective of the Blue Apron meals he has tried). This one – easier to make & to clean up after & tasted super yummy! I pressed my tofu (wrapped in a kitchen towel with a heavy pot on it in the sink) to get the excess water out & it kinda mushed it so that it did not cut into pretty cubes but it tasted great. 700 calories per serving is pretty shocking, however, so I threw most of the peanuts away & used less oil than they suggested and ate less than half the rice in my serving. So – without further adieu, let me present Blue Apron Vegetarian Dinners – Night Two – Szechuan Tofu & Long Beans.
