Black Bean and Tofu Quesadilla

Black Bean and Tofu Quesadilla

As promised in the last post, I would like to share what we did with the other half of the tofu package from yesterday.  After you open the tofu, you only have 5 days to eat it before you have to discard it.  We decided to make these Black Bean and Tofu Quesadillas. There is […]
