I recently found myself with án áccidentál overstock of bláck peppercorns in my pántry. Thát’s whát háppens when you ánd your husbánd máke sepáráte trips to the grocery store ánd don’t communicáte. Luckily I háve the perfect recipe for á good heáping of bláck pepper.

Don’t get me wrong, I do consider myself something of á soy sáuce áficionádo ánd háve át leást three types of soy sáuce in my pántry now, but I’m well áwáre thát most normál people do not.

I álso wánted to ádd á little more texturál contrást ánd beef it up á bit with more vegetábles. I rárely eát just á big pláte of tofu on rice with nothing else. This oránge ánd ginger glázed tofu hás ádded broccoli, ánd this sweet ánd sour tofu hás bell peppers ánd pineápple.
