Yeah. It’s Valentine’s Day. Fun times. Didn’t make the Sweet Melissa Sundays recipe selection for the week–Easy Chocolate Mousse. And it’s easy! I’m leaving for Mexican beaches at the end of the week and I wasn’t going to eat it (I’m going to be living in a bathing suit for a week!).Cookies I can bake and stash in the freezer; mousse not so much.
Instead, this is a yummy and healthy vegan recipe. Stir-Fried Sesame Asparagus with Tofu and Ramen. So easy, so delicious. The recipe for the asparagus comes from 1,000 Vegan Recipes–an awesome cookbook of almost every imaginable vegan recipe. Everything I’ve made from it has been delicious. I added tofu, which I baked in the oven at 350° F for 20 minutes and served it over ramen noodles. I also upped the garlic and ginger in the recipe. It would be tasty over brown rice or any whole grain as well.

What a delicious looking dish! The mousse was good!
This looks great. I’m thankful that I like healthy foods to balance out the sweets. Have fun in Mexico! I just got back from Playa del Carmen and it was fun!
Sounds wonderful. Ginger, garlic and sesame seeds are so good with veggies. That’s great that you are getting to travel again. I’m sure you’ll have a wonderful time. Peace, Stephanie
After eating a lot of treats this weekend, that looks wonderful! I didn’t get to the chocolate mousse, either. Have a great vacation!
Why is it that every time I visit here you are flying off to some exotic beach somewhere?? LOL Hope you have fun!! [jealous]
It’s currently 25 degrees here, I don’t see myself living in a bathing suit for a week anytime soon, but I do see myself wanting to try this one very soon. I am just now getting into tofu and this one looks like something I can manage. Thanks for the recipe, Miss Bikini Bod.
Yummy. Would be nice with tempeh and soba noodles too. How does a person come up with 1000 recipes for a cookbook? Amazing.
Looks very tasty!
Wendy, Looks awesome! Have a great time in Mexico…I hope you are getting some diving in too!
Yum, sounds very tasty! I love recipes like this! 🙂
Yum – simple, healthy and delicious!
Yummie, this asparagus dish looks so tasty…nice picture!
This looks so much better than chocolate mousse to me! I’ve been on a tofu kick lately, so I’ll add this one to my ever-growing recipe list.
Oooo, this looks good. I have two blocks of tofu sitting in the fridge right now, and this is making my mouth water!
