Tofu Sausage and Rice

I didn’t actually have a plan for this dish.  I hadn’t been to the store yet for our weekly groceries so I just dug through the refrigerator to see what I could throw together and this is the result.  It was actually surprisingly good too!  Mr. Real Food and I both agreed this was a […]
