Soy Marinated Sesame Crusted Tofu

Tofu’s gotta bad rap I think. Often you think that tofu is bland, or tastes like nothing, or doesn’t add anything to the dish, and to those people I say GTFO. If you don’t like tofu maybe it wasn’t done properly? Give give soy a 

Perfect Smokey Spicy Enoki Mushrooms

Perfect Smokey Spicy Enoki Mushrooms

It’s no secret I’m obsessed with mushrooms. All of them. No mushroom is left unloved and I truly hope my mushroom love spreads far and wide to everyone else! That’s why I can’t wait to share with you these perfect smokey spicy enoki mushrooms. Enoki mushrooms are the kind of mushrooms you would typically find in ramen bowls or even inside some spring rolls. But I love them so much roasted to the extreme to where they become crispy and crunchy and almost burnt.

This recipe is pretty versatile in how far you want to take the cook based on what you’re using it for. If I’m having it as a snack I like to cook it a little further than you may think it needs to go, but if I’m using it in a rice dish (like this one here!) then I like to pull them a little sooner. It comes together in no time at all and I actually have used both my air fryer and oven for these guys so whichever you decide on using it’s up to you! I would suggest keeping an eye on them in the tail end of the cook because I do like them dark and crispy but not inedible.

Here we go!

Equipment

  • Air Fryer
  • Sheet Pan
  • Small Metal Bowl

Ingredients
  

  • 1 pckg Enoki Mushrooms The ones I buy come in a standard package size so they should suffice
  • 2 tbsp Scallion or Olive Oil
  • 1 tbsp Smoked Paprika
  • 1 tbsp Chili Powder
  • 2 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1 tsp Kosher Salt

Instructions
 

  • Cut Woody ends off mushrooms
  • Combine all spices
  • Take mushrooms and break off into smaller portions, about 1cm bundles
  • Coat mushrooms in oil and seasoning. I like to use my hands here to make sure everything is nicely and evenly coated

For Air Fryer

  • Place a layer of foil on your air fryer base, helps with cleaning and prevents mushrooms from peaking through.
  • In batches cook in AF for 8-10minutes at 400F, I like to flip them to make them crispy

For Oven

  • Take large parchment lined sheet pan, place mushrooms in even later, cook in oven for 15-20minutes, flipping half way and keep an eye on them in the last 7-10 minutes or so. I like my oven ones very crispy but you can cook them to your liking.

I know there are a million ways to make broccoli cheddar soup and the list is endless but the devil is in the details. My best piece of advice is when it comes to making soup, is using my own home made stock. It seems

Whipped Ricotta and Roasted Brussels Sprouts

This is one of those dinners where I just wanted to place a lot of elements I was into and see if they mesh, and did they ever! I’ve been a long time fan of any and most cheeses and ricotta is no exception. I’ve
