YAKITORI CHICKEN BOWLS WITH JAPANESE SLAW

YAKITORI CHICKEN BOWLS WITH JAPANESE SLAW    Okay so I do realise that yakitori belongs on a skewer but stop ruining my fun and love of food in a bowl.

CRISPY SATAY TOFU WITH COCONUT RICE AND CUCUMBER, AVOCADO SALAD

Crispy Satay Tofu 2

 

I’m going to start this post by saying I’m not really into tofu. I think it can be really bland sometimes and I’m not always into the spongy texture. This tofu is none of those things.
