Last Nights Dinner 04.06.10

Roasted Tofu, Veggies and Apples

2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tbsp Honey
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp dried thyme
Salt and pepper to taste
1 pound extra-firm tofu, drained
Baby Carrots ( you could really use what ever veggies you prefer to the veggies part)
Brussel Sprouts
Red Potatoes, washed, cut into cubes
1 tablespoon Earth Balance Butter
3 apples, cored and cut into slices

1. Preheat the oven to 400°F.

2. Combine vinegar, oil, Honey, garlic, oregano, thyme, salt and pepper in a mixing bowl to make a marinade and set aside. Press tofu to remove as much liquid as possible, then cut into 8 equal slices. Pour balsamic marinade over tofu and marinate for 15 to 20 minutes.

3. Remove tofu and arrange in a shallow 9×13-inch baking dish along with carrots, potatoes and Brussel sprouts. Pour remaining marinade over tofu and vegetables, brushing to coat everything. Cover tightly with foil and bake for 20 minutes. Uncover and bake for 10 minutes more. Turn the tofu and continue to bake an additional 10 minutes.

4. For the beets. Clean and cut into 1/4 and wrap in tin foil. Bake alongside tofu and veggies. In oven. You might need to start the beets before the tofu depending on how big they are. Can take up to 90 mins.

5. Meanwhile, prepare apples. Heat earth balance in a large skillet over medium heat. Add apples and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender and lightly browned but not mushy.

6. When cooked, serve tofu and vegetables alongside apples.

Recipe found and slightly adjusted from Wholefoods.

  1. this looks amazing!!!

  2. I LOVE BRUSSEL SPROUTS! Of course, I never had to eat them as a kid. As an adult though, I really love the taste. A little tip, if you add a little bit of nutmeg to brussel sprouts they don’t taste as bitter.

    Thanks for sharing this recipe Jen!

  3. the food looks so amazing, it’s making me hungry. I’m having friends over for dinner some time next week and your meals always inspire me..might have to try making one for when they are over. Hopefully it will look as good as yours 🙂

  4. All of your dinners look so tasty, and i’m a vegetarian too! I copy all your recipes so I can try them out when I finally get a kitchen of my own next year (i’m living in a dorm right now).

  5. I’m looking forward to trying this recipe, it looks so good for these just-into-spring nights.

  6. Oh yum, you guys eat so healthy! Brett and I really need to take tips from you two!

    Looks yummy — i have a package of firm tofu in the fridge to use up & was wondering whether or not i should try freezing it. Have you ever done that? I’ve read that a lot of people prefer the texture of it when it’s been frozen & thawed, then used in a recipe.

  8. Yum! Can’t wait to try this :o)
