The most common dish that I make for myself is stir-fry, and I realized I have yet to write about it. This dish is very routine for me, and I think that’s why I don’t think about taking pictures or blogging when I make it. It is fun because everytime I make it, it turns out differently. It turns into a hodgepodge of whatever vegetables I have, some tofu or other protein, and whatever sauce I want to throw on.
Because of my move, I had to re-buy my sauces, and wanted to spread the word about Black Bean and Garlic Sauce. My mom used to cook with it and I always liked it. It is such a gem. Need to give veggies some flavor? Toss some black bean and garlic sauce. Need a marinade sauce? Throw some black bean and garlic on it. It works well with shrimp, chicken, pork, tofu… really, anything! It was a staple for my college meals, and now, for quick dinners when I get home late from work.
