Today I devoured a Spicy Thai Curry Tofu Dinner. I even got myself another plate because it was so delicious. The spicy but sweet flavors remind me of this restaurant near my hometown in Oakhurst, NJ called Takara Japanese Restaurant. Which was featured in the well known food magazine and the website Zagat. This restaurant is a family run business that is successful because of their traditional Japanese food. I even used to work there. They have the best spicy vegetarian curry if you happen to be in the area.
I like how here on campus they not only offer different types of foods but also they have vegetarian and gluten free stations so everyone can feel comfortable eating at the cafeteria. Which is another reason why Scranton feels like such a happy and welcoming school.
I am not personally a vegetarian but my father used to be and he introduced me to tofu. I learned all the amazing things you can do with tofu because it is simply flavorless but when cooked with the right ingredients tofu can taste so good. It can also help if you are trying to watch your weight here on campus because it substitutes for meat with less calories. One half a cup of raw tofu is 94 calories which I learned from about.com nutrition page. Tofu is cholesterol free, contains iron, and is organic. Referring to my last blog, I love Pinterest! I look up most of my recipes from there. I recommend trying to make Peanut Butter Spicy Noodles! It is delicious and different. So keep tofu on your mind when you are planning your next meal!
