Tofu With Rice and Black Eyed Peas

"I converted this from a chicken ricipe and eliminated most of the fat as well. It has a slight bite to it from the red pepper flake and a hint of chicken from the seasonings. An excellent choice if you are vegetarian or just trying to reduce calories and fat while increasing nutrition."

  1. We liked this, in fact, it's going into the regular rotation. I did make a few changes. I used 2 cups of chicken stock for the rice and omitted the bouillon. After browning the tofu, I added more oil and sauteed the onion and garlic rather than steaming them as the recipe called for. I also added about 2 cups, possibly more, of chicken stock once I'd added the rice and black-eyed peas into the pan.
