You know, I really need to get more organized for Tofu Tuesdays. I should write this post in advance, when I have oodles of time to myself and a stunningly beautiful dish to photograph and post here, as proof of my cooking prowess. In reality…

Recently we instituted Monday as Kids’ Cooking Day. My five year old makes supper. Prep, actual cooking, setting the table, clearing away… OK, what this actually means is that it takes me twice as long to get supper on the table, twice as much mess to clean up, and twice as much frustration. But also the joy of watching my little boy learn to cook, and take pride in all his “hard” work. It’s definitely worth the headache.

Yesterday was super-hot for and I had no intention of turning on the oven or standing over the stove. So L and I made a couple of side salads (carrot-raisin salad and a corn salad) and we had sandwiches to boot. The grown up version was kind of a tofu salad sandwich — no doubt if you own a veg cookbook, you’ve already got a good jumping-off recipe. The kid version, and the version my husband opted for as well, is known in this house as “Peanut Butter Fluff.” Trust me, it doesn’t get any easier than this! Plus, everyone (at least in our house) likes it, it greatly reduces the fat for those that need…ummm… fat-reducing, and it gets some quality protein into those sometimes picky kids!

Ingredients

1 box of silken tofu
12 oz peanut butter
4 tablespoons honey

Put all in your super-duper blender and blend away. Obviously, this makes a lot. Spread on your bread of choice; also good on apples, etc. Refrigerate any leftovers. If you have use for half a box of tofu, simply half the recipe.

I hope you enjoy! L’s got plenty of kid-friendly, easy recipes up his sleeves. Tune in next week. If the weather is more accommodating, he’ll be making you barbecue tofu!

  2. That looks too easy not to try. Although in the meantime I think I need to have a “fluffer nutter” 😉 today for lunch. Yum. I haven’t had one of those in ages. Thanks for sharing!
