Carrot-tofu scrambler or The-Meal-That-Ben-Loves-to-Hate

2 tbsp oil
10 carrots, grated
1 pack extra-firm tofu, drained and crumbled
1/3 cup soy sauce
1/3 cup sesame seeds
1 tsp sesame oil

1. In a large fry pan, heat the oil and cook the carrots about 15 minutes on med-low.
2. Add tofu, cook about 5 minutes
3. Add soy sauce and seeds, cook 1 minute
4. Drizzle with sesame oil, stir and serve over rice.

This recipe came from a fellow librarian, Karen, in Kingston, Ontario. She didn't eat meat, was a single mother of two, worked full-time, biked her kids to preschool and fed Ben and I every Sunday night that we lived there, so we could do our laundry at the place and play with her kids. She was (and still is) amazing. I consider this food comfort food. The women I worked with in Houston considered it freak food. Ben considers it sigh food. As in, (sigh) "is that what's for dinner?"
