Vegetarian pasta and Tuna stuffed broiled tomato

Marni Sumbal

Karel will eat anything I prepare. I've had a few "not-worthy for the blog" creations but overall, I think I make his tummy very happy.
Although Karel is not a vegetarian I always cook a vegetarian meal for the both of us. It is up to him if he wants to add "extras" to his meal or eat something after dinner but when he comes home from work, there is always something plant-based ready for him to try.
Several nights a week I try to cook chicken or fish for him but on average, when I prepare an additional non-vegetarian dinner for him it likely tuna or deli meat inside a vegetarian creation. On most days of the week we have a salad w/ dinner or as the main part of dinner.

Here are two easy dishes to please both the vegetarian and the non-vegetarian.
Enjoy my latest creations!

Vegetarian pasta
1/3 carton of firm tofu (cubed)
2 large handfuls of spinach

1 large garlic clove (chopped)
Seasonings - pepper, curry powder

2. While pasta is cooking, heat pan to medium heat and add olive oil and garlic.
