Mix together kimchee, peppers, Sriracha, and cilantro. For one serving, warm 2 tortillas and fill with tofu and top with kimchee mixture with a squeeze of lime. For added texture, sliced cucumbers are great!
Spaghetti With Bacon
1 package whole wheat spaghetti
1 package bacon
2 tablespoons olive oil (and more if desired)
6 cloves garlic
1 tablespoon red pepper flakes
1 teaspoon dry oregano
1 teaspoon dry basil
5 Roma tomatoes
8-10 fresh basil leaves (optional)
Prep sauce ingredients: Peel and slice garlic thin. Cube tomatoes.In small bowl add oregano, basil, and chili flakes. Cut bacon into small chunks.
Cook pasta al dente according to instructions on the box.
Sauce takes approximately 8-10 minutes! While the pasta is cooking, cook bacon in large non-stick pan until golden brown in medium heat. Remove half of the fat in the pan. Return to heat and add olive oil, garlic, and herb mixture. Before garlic turns brown add tomatoes. Drain pasta and add to sauce mixture. Add salt and pepper to taste and more olive oil if desired. (I add another 2 tablespoons, myself.) Before plating, mix in fresh basil.
Some other things I cooked the past month were very simple to make and very good.
Pan fried plantains. I use the macho variety available in most Mexican groceries. Choose a banana that is slightly soft. Don’t be afraid if there is some blackening on the skin. Slice and fry in canola oil. sprinkle with either salt or sugar after taking off heat. Also makes a great side or dessert when served with some ice cream.
