On Saturday Ed and I went to Lam's Seafood Market in the International District, and while Ed perused the seafood (some of which I had never seen before) I went a little bit crazy in their grocery aisles.
I mean - who can resist $1 rice noodles and $2 pressed tofu! They had TAMARIND PODS for goodness sake! Exciting! (well - for me)
Needless to say - we're going to be eating Asian food all week.
Last night I made yummy Tofu Banh Mi sandwiches (pictured above - hopefully Cooking Light doesn't sue me for using their photo - I forgot to take one of my own).
I used already pressed tofu, which saved me 30 minutes of waiting, and put chili-garlic sauce on the bread to give it a little extra kick. Helpful tip: watch your broiling bread like a HAWK. Mine got a little black around the edges in only a minute.
