Bulgar Wheat Tofu with Lime Tahini Sauce

After three finals, four presentations, two papers, and a potentially dangerous amount of coffee...


And I couldn't be happier.

There are many things that I love about winter break. Sleeping in. My family. The DVR loaded with all of my favorite shows. My parents joke that I take over the TV when I come home. I can't really refute that.

All joking aside though, there is something nice about being home. I love living in the city and there are perks of living on your own. I don't have to suffer through stilted morning conversation. I am 100% not a morning person and holding any sort of conversation before 10 AM is like pulling teeth. I don't have to share the remote. A carton of milk lasts all the way to the expiration date. Sometimes it's nice to share the remote, though. It's nice to have someone there to hear the random stories that just aren't the same when told hours later.

I still don't like the morning talking thing, though.

On an unrelated note, I have a little recipe here for you that is both delicious and nutritious. Unfortunately, it does not rhyme like the end of that sentence. I'll try harder next time.

Bulgar Wheat Tofu with Lime Tahini Sauce


1 cup bulgar wheat
1 package tofu, chopped
1/4 cup tahini
2-3 tbsp lime juice


Cook the bulgar wheat according to the package's instructions and set aside. Preheat the oven's broiler while you press the tofu. Slice the tofu into bite size pieces and spread out onto a prepared baking sheet. Broil 5-6 minutes per side.

Using a food processor (or a whisk/fork) combine the tahini and lime juice. Add more or less lime juice depending on how thick you want the sauce. Pour over the bulgar wheat and tofu. Serves four.

Lots and lots of cookie recipes will be on their way! Get excited!! What are you all baking for the holidays?


  1. Yay! My finals are over as well! And now I'm sleeping till 11 o'clock in the morning, eating breakfast & lunch all at the same time, not really bothering to come out of my sweats all day & generally just doing nothing. I love it! Wishing you a very wonderful holiday season!

  3. The exercise will help eliminate the potential for a person suffering from back pain in their lives. If the person has a strong back, then there is the possibility that they are able to avoid being beaten with the pain and discomfort of not being able to live a full and active all the time.togu exercise ball I am very thanks for your posting and sharing.

  4. Looks deceptively easy to make yet but still delicious and nutritous :P A perfect student meal!
