SO HOW'D IT GO?

Well, I initially kind of got my idea from this recipe. I've been wanting to make some orzo..so I first fried some tofu cubes in a little oil (came out perfectly!), then cooked some mushrooms with s and p, added some garlic, veg broth...and then some gently steamed green beans and soy sauce. I added the cooked orzo, a little more soy sauce, and my tofu. Last, I added green onions and a little basil. This was a great, filling..almost elegant dish! I don't want to rate this recipe..b/c I didn't really just use those ingredients..but I like what came out of it! : )
