Green Bean-Tofu Stir Fry w/ Rice Noodles

I was inspired to cook tofu again! I had a few ingredients I needed to use up in my kitchen and I wanted something simple and tasty that I could make from them all. I found half of a chopped onion, half a bag of frozen green beans, a block of extra-firm tofu and a large bag of rice noodles. A little chopping, sauteing and mixing along with a few spices and sauces and voila! I created this wonderful meal:

It was mighty tasty if I do say so myself! I gobbled it all up.

I must say that I'm really enjoying cooking with tofu. It used to intimidate and scare me but the more I attempt to incorporate it, the more I find it super simple and so versatile! I love that it can complement just about anything you mix it with because it absorbs the flavors of the foods around it. Yum!

What are some of your favorite ways to cook tofu?

Banana Everything Cookies

Another favorite from Isa and Terry's Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar:

I love oatmeal and chocolate. I love them even more together. It's just one of those combinations that when you put together the result is just an absolute good. Now throw in a little mushy banana and you've got yourself a real treat!

These were very tasty and really helped get me into the mood for fall. Seriously I can't believe it's almost here!!! I'm SO ready for apple picking, pumpkins, bon fires, hoodies, hayrides, crunchy leaves and Halloween! YAY!!!
