Biggie Smalls Bruschetta and Stir Fry

The Notorious B.I.G. was murdered 14 years ago. We all know the story, so I'll just leave ya with a track. So many classics to pick from, but right now I'm partial to "Juicy". Bringing you back.

The bruschetta's just some slices of bread drizzled with olive oil and topped with leftover sauce from the spaghetti I made a couple nights ago. 18 min. in the oven at 375F.

makes approx. 3-4 servings

1 c. long grain brown rice
5 shallots, diced
1 fat clove garlic, sliced
1 lb. tofu, cut into little rectangles
1 1/2 broccoli crowns, chopped
1 hot house tomato, sliced
1/8 c. walnuts, chopped
shoyu soy sauce
1 tsp. cumin
1 tsp. coriander
1 tsp. black sesame seeds
1 tsp. white sesame seeds
1/2 tsp. turmeric
1/4 tsp. cayenne, 90k Scoville
1/4 tsp. salt
sesame oil

1. Simmer the rice 45 min.
2. Sauté the shallots in a large pan in sesame oil. After they start to brown, add the garlic for a couple minutes, then toss in the tofu and broccoli. Douse in soy sauce, cover for a while.
3. Once the broccoli starts to turn bright green, uncover and add in walnuts, tomato, and seasonings. Heat through, try to get the broccoli a little crispy on the edges.

Here's my review of Mike Leigh's most recent film, Another Year.
