Fresh Seasonal Recipes for a sizzling summer celebration:
I love how San-J sauces make me look and feel like a professional chef. I always get ooh's and aaah's with the first bite of every one of my San-J recipes and I just smile.  My friends think I spent hours with the prep but San-J makes it super easy and yummy.  I know I don't have to worry because no matter who I invite...I can make something delicious that will cover all my bases.  I have several friends that can't tolerate gluten so I always keep San-J’s gluten free sauces, including Asian BBQ, Mongolian, Szechuan, Thai Peanut and Tamari Lite in the house. Tofu in the refrigerator or some organic chicken or beef and I am ready in a flash.  My vegetable garden makes it even easier with a bounty to add to the grill anytime. 

I was excited to try the Coconut Tofu Mongolian Tacos. It sounded fun and tropical. I wanted to do with a little twist and make it a bit spicier though so I used the San-J Szechuan Sauce instead.  I added a few elements to the recipe like some Napa cabbage and scallions. Sometimes I like to shake things up a little...or a lot. My prep is above...I got a head start on things as you can see with my sliced tofu, ground nuts and coconut-egg mixture.

The tofu is cooking up nicely in my grill pan above. I was in a rush because it was a work night so my pieces weren't perfect triangles but they are going in the tacos anyway so no worries about that. It was easy to prepare, there were really only a few steps to do and several of them can be prepped ahead.  The final result tasted really yummy. My prep is above...I got a head start.  See how easy it is and how yummy it looked? It tasted just as good, you definitely should try this recipe.

Dinner was a hit tonight and I can't wait to try the other recipes with the family and friends. My mom told me she is going to try the Vegan Grilled Vegetable Quinoa this week. She liked recipes like this that she can prep ahead and grab when she is starved after the gym. You know what, me too!

San-J International or San-Jirushi was founded by the Sato family as a tamari and miso company in 1804 in Mie, Japan. Current San-J President, Takashi Sato, is an eighth-generation member of the founding family. They began brewing the first Tamari from their Henrico, Virginia, facility in 1987, continuing the 200 year tradition of Japanese brewing mastery.
