Tofurkey Pizza + Roasted Asparagus.

04/11/2011

When I was in Whole Foods the other day, I finally found something I’ve been looking forward to for a long time – TOFURKEY PIZZA! It’s still not available everywhere so finding it was extremeellllyyy exciting – plus it makes for a great quick and easy meal which is great for the end of the semester when things are super busy. The Tofurkey pizzas come in 3 flavors – cheese, “pepperoni” and Italian “sausage” and fire roasted veggies. I went for the one with the soysage & veggies because, well, to be completely honest it looked the best in the picture on the box.

The pizza – which is made with stretchy Dayia cheese – was sooo delicious and was more than enough food to provide leftovers (or to share with a friend!) I made some quick-roasted asparagus to go with the pizza – recipe below.

Quick-Roasted Asparagus

  • Handful of fresh asparagus (about 10 spears), trimmed
  • EVOO
  • Sesame oil
  • Garlic powder
  • Chili pepper flakes
  • Salt & pepper

1. Trim tough ends off asparagus

2. Mix together EVOO (about 1-2 Tbsp), a splash of sesame oil (about .5 tsp), garlic, chili pepper, salt & pepper – adjusting spices to taste

3. In a medium bowl, toss the asparagus and the oil-spice mixture until all of the asparagus spears are well coated

4. Place oil-coated asparagus onto a baking sheet or Pyrex dish and place under your oven’s broiler for about 7-9 minutes, until asparagus is browning and beginning to crisp – but not burnt. In order to avoid over-cooking and make sure the asparagus cooks evenly, move the spears around with a spatula every few minutes.
