Simple Spiced Tofu Veggie Bowl

Last Thursday started warm and sunny, with a moving truck backing down our driveway! Yes, last Thursday was moving day. It was the culmination of what has been a crazy September for us. You see, on September 1st, I worked with a real estate agent and had my house listed for sale, and on September 4th, an offer came in. With a closing date of September 29th looming on the horizon, the process of negotiations, appraisals, inspections and looking for another condo began. While I had faith that things would work out as they were meant to be, I was stressed because it looked like the closing on my house was a certainty and the closing on the condo was an uncertainty. And, my two doggos sensed that.

Ollie Adopted 5 Years ago

Our adopted older dog, Tawny, had been with us on our last move. But, for our adopted younger dog, Ollie, this was a first – and boyoboy was he stressed. The day before our move, I was a bit worried about him, so, when I passed a Dollar General, I figured I’d buy him a few toys to keep him distracted, and that’s when I happened on Rachael Ray™ Nutrish® super-premium food and treats for dogs, inspired by recipes from her own kitchen. Rachael Ray’s Nutrish recipes are made with simple, wholesome ingredients like real meat or fish, and do not contain poultry by-product meal or fillers. I decided to treat Ollie and Tawny to some Rachael Ray™ Nutrish® dog food and grabbed a couple packets of food and a packet of dog treats, along with some dog toys.

Ollie Tawny Adopt Don't Shop

Ollie came to us as a puppy who had barely lost his teeth. He was one of three puppies that had been found abandoned in a park. When my daughter and I ran into him at the county animal shelter, I was reluctant to bring him home as he was one huge puppy. I managed to convince my daughter to wait 24 hours before we went back for him – hoping someone else would adopt him as his two sisters had been adopted while we were there looking at him. But, when we got back to the shelter 24 hours later, he was still there. While I was still reluctant to adopt another dog, my daughter promised to train and take care of him and help him make our home his furever home. And, she stuck to her promise. Over the past 5 years, Ollie has brought us both so much joy with his TV watching antics, his incredible loyalty, and sassy, spunky personality (just like my daughter’s)!

Now, you might be thinking what on earth does this Simple Cumin & Coriander Spiced Tofu & Veggie Bowl have to do with Rachael Ray™ Nutrish® or Ollie, well, this was the last meal I cooked in our old house and it’s based on Rachael Ray™ Nutrish® Chicken and Veggies. Only, instead of chicken I used tofu as my daughter is a vegetarian. Wholesome, delicious ingredients like onions, garlic, carrots, celery, beets, eggs and peas also make up this bowl. When you give this super simple dish a try, I’m hoping you find it as super tasty and hearty as my daughter and I did no matter if you are moving or staying put! 

Happy Monday, Y’all ~ don’t forget to enter the sweepstakes cos ya never know – right!?

  4. I love that video of Ollie looking at the dog on tv! It’s so funny to watch how dogs interact with the tv. I heard once that dogs can’t see tv, but that’s totally not true. My Dad’s dogs will virtually attack the tv screen if a dog even walks by…even if they don’t make a noise. What a great campaign with Rachael Ray. Ethel is an adopted pup, and I can’t imagine life without her! Also, this veggie bowl sounds amazing, Shashi. I love a good bowl meal as it combines so many flavors into one fun dish. Two thumbs up here, my friend!

    I might swap that tofu back out for chicken, but it looks delicious! #client

  6. Beth says:

    What a fun post! I love your furry friends and they will be eating well if they are eating Rachael Ray’s Nutrish! Great idea to mimic the ingredients in your dish!

  7. Love how well you feed your dogs and us for that matter. This delicious tofu dish is going down at our house!

  8. April says:

    I haven’t tried tofu yet but your bowl looks so good how could I not try it plus it has all of my favorite ingredients!

  9. Congratulations on this huge milestone, Shashi! That photo with tiny Ollie – I had to stare at it for a long time because whenever you said Ollie was younger, I never imagined such an obvious age difference (because of how much he’s grown!). So adorable!

  10. Delicious tofu bowl, Shashi. I grew up eating tofu, but they were so different from the tofu I can get from ALDI…love this spiced up version.

  11. I adore tofu, but never think to spice it up! These bowls looks amazing, and I wish my dog were still around, I’d definitely try the Nutrish!
