Still no voice, I can’t smell much and haven’t got much of an appetite, but I thought a protein kick might help me recuperate and decided to make a pot of this wonderful chili to keep me warm in the snow. (There isn’t much snow yet, just enough to make winter seem imminent.)
I didn’t have all the ingredients to hand and can only blame myself for any flavours missed (I’d like to try adding coffee next time even though I don’t drink the stuff) but this was good despite my apparent inability to follow recipes. I was particularly impressed by the tofu, first frozen and then thawed in boiling water. I really liked the texture. This could be wonderful with smoked tofu, too, but then I like a smoky flavour in just about anything.
Here’s hoping that I’ll be able to speak again next week…have a good weekend!
