Couple recipes – Chickpea lunch and Kentucky Fried (Baked) Tofu

I’m not sure where I picked up this first recipe. (My apologies in advance to anyone I may have snagged this from since I don’t know whom to credit. If I did get it from you, let me know so I can link ya here.)

No pics of this one, but it’s a nice colorful (and tasty) lunch and super easy to throw together.

Chickpea Lunch

1 can of chickpeas
sliced cherry tomatoes
feta cheese
lemon juice
olive oil
balsamic vinegar
dried oregano

Toss together and serve.


The second recipe is for Kentucky Fried (Baked) Tofu. I got this from Running2Ks, who I believe got it from a friend. It’s really easy to make and is very tasty!

Kentucky Fried (Baked) Tofu:

2 Tbsp hot water
2 Tbsp soy sauce
2 Tbsp almond butter
1/4 tsp garlic powder or 1 clove fresh garlic
1/4 tsp cracked pepper
1 lb very firm tofu sliced in thickness to your liking
Salt & Pepper Kettle chips crushed
Combine the first 5 ingredients in a blender, then pour in a bowl (or just mix vigorously in a bowl if you don’t want to dirty your blender like me). Dip the tofu in the sauce and then coat it with the Salt & Pepper Kettle chips. I added a bit more water to the leftover sauce and poured it over the coated tofu pieces. Place tofu pieces on a cookie sheet and bake @ 350 F for 15 min. Flip them over and cook for another 10 to 15 minutes.

Mmmmmm, tasty! Jody and I both loved these and and Ava ate them right up as well. :)


  1. I am going to have to make this tofu recipe asap! I’m going to opt for plain potato chips though. Have you tried this baked?

  2. We’re making this tonight–baked and with the yummy chips :) MMMM!

  6. Yum!
    I saw this over at Running2Ks before, but forgot about it. Now I can’t wait to try it. Thank you.

  7. Ooooo! Neato!

  8. H.M. Tonja – Yay! Glad you are experimenting right along with me. :)

    Rowan – Let me know how ya like it.

    Harmonia – Just got back from Vitamin Cottage and got some things to make one of your soups this week. Yum.

  9. They both look and sound good!

    The chickpea sounds like something pretty stock standard — I’ve seen something similar in the South Beach diet cookbook and in a low cholesterol/low fat diet book.


  10. Oh my the tofu looks really good. We are always looking for new ways to prepare it and this looks like something the kids will really like.

    Thanks so much for sharing :)
