YouTube Channel link: Listener Carrie from Wisconsin has a GREAT YouTube channel (Weight Watchers with Carrie), where she shares her weight loss journey. Carrie posts a video every day about the foods she eats to lose weight (and she’s lost more than 100 pounds with WW), PLUS she has two ADORABLE DOGS who make frequent appearances in the background! I love it! It’s a great channel, and I encourage you to subscribe to get some great tips from Carrie. Thanks for sharing Wendalicious At Goal, Carrie! We are definitely ALL IN THIS TOGETHER.

Recipe Link: I made Cooking Light’s Egg Foo Yong with Mushroom Sauce this week, and it was fantastic. Vegetarian, and only 7 SmartPoints per serving, and that includes the rice! Hooray for zero-point foods!

Recipe: Tofu, Broccoli and Butternut Squash with Creamy Tahini Sauce

January 22, 2018

This recipe is absolutely fantastic – an amazing blend of roasted vegetables and tofu, plus a surprising creamy sauce made with tahini paste (ground sesame seeds) and spicy Sriracha. Try it!


Tofu, Broccoli and Butternut Squash with Creamy Tahini Sauce

(adapted from WeightWatchers.com)

Serves: 4; 3 SmartPoints per serving.

Ingredients

  • 14 oz extra firm tofu, drained and blotted dry, cut into 8 equal pieces
  • 1 Tbsp low sodium soy sauce
  • 1 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 large head(s) uncooked broccoli, cut into medium-size florets (you can also peel and thickly slice the stalks)
  • 4 tsp extra virgin olive oil, divided
  • 1 ¼ tsp kosher salt, divided (or to taste)
  • ½ tsp black pepper, freshly ground (or to taste)
  • 2 pound(s) uncooked butternut squash, peeled, seeded, cut into 1½-in chunks
  • 2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • 2 Tbsp tahini paste
  • 2 Tbsp fat-free plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 2 Tbsp warm water
  • 1 tsp Sriracha hot sauce, or to taste
  • 2 Tbsp green pumpkin seeds (pepitas), toasted

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 450°F.
  • Marinate tofu in soy sauce and balsamic vinegar in a small bowl for 10 minutes.
  • Toss broccoli with 2 tsp oil, ½ tsp salt and ¼ tsp pepper in another bowl.
  • Toss squash with remaining 2 tsp oil, ½ tsp salt, remaining ¼ tsp pepper and garlic on a large sheet pan (at least 12- X 16-in); bake 15 minutes. Remove pan from oven and stir; move squash to one side of pan.
  • Spread broccoli out on other side of pan; nestle tofu down center of pan, making sure each piece makes contact with pan. Return to oven; cook until squash is tender and browned on the edges, 20-25 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, combine tahini, yogurt, lemon juice, water, remaining ¼ tsp salt, and sriracha to taste in a small bowl. Mixture will thicken as it sets. Add more water if you want it thinner.
  • Plate tofu and vegetables; drizzle with tahini sauce and sprinkle with pepitas.

Notes: to toast the pepitas, spread on a small sheet pan, spray with cooking spray and toast until golden, about 3-5 minutes in the oven.

Serving size: 2 pieces tofu, 1 ¼ c vegetables, 1 ½ Tbsp sauce, ½ Tbsp pepitas
