ate my first Star Fruit.....

Tuesday, February 02, 2010

Well my new item to try this week was the star fruit. It wasn't as "fruity" tasting as I thought it might be, but I did like the "crisp", watery taste of it! I was craving something swet to eat before I went to bed last night, so I stayed away from the cookies and junk and ate this instead.
I also bought a box of firm tofu but I'm not sure what to do with it. I'll have to do a recipe web search on that one! Any suggestions?

    I know this is late, but we have Carambola (aka Star Fruit) trees all over the place, growing here. I love to stop on my way to work, pick a few from my neighbor's tree and eat them on the way. They also make beautiful garnishes for ice water, to liven it up a bit. :)

    Star fruit make a fruit salad pretty! :) And I also like them in a salad because of the taste and texture mix helps soothe my cravings! :)

    Puddlecrazy has me hungry for her suggestion! Guess I need to go and eat something.

    I've never tried star fruit but wondered about it. I saw it on a Food Network show last year.

    I use tofu weekly from stir fry to "meatless loaf." This week I'm making tofu nut balls. There are some good recipes on SparkRecipes.

    I've always wondered about star fruit and never tasted it.

    Try cutting your firm tofu into cubes, and saute it lightly with garlic. Then stir fry veggies with it, sprinkle with tamari, and serve it with rice.
