dinner last night

Ok, so we very often have baked marinated tofu "steaks" (firm tofu cut into large slices then frozen to give it a meaty texture), roasted salt potatoes and some form a steamed green veggie. Last night was no exception. You can actually bake both at 425 degrees for 20-30 minutes (though i normally pull the tofu out after 20-15 minutes).

another tofu/seitan/veggie marinade

1/3 cup soy sauce or braggs or mix of both
1/4 c balsamic, red wine vinegar, or apple cider vinegar
1 tbsp honey or maple syrup or other sweetener
1 tsp nutritional yeast
1/4 tsp paprika
1/4 tsp rosemary

blend and pour over tofu pieces or whatever you are marinating. Shake or stir to blend and let sit in the fridge for at least an hour.I like to bake marinated tofu slices at 425 degrees for 20-25 minutes, flipping once halfway through.

Roasted potatoes

1-2 lbs of salt potatoes, quartered
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp rosemary
1 tbsp salt
1/2 tsp fresh ground black pepper

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Place potatoes in a baking pan in a single layer.Drizzle with the olive oil and sprinkle with the spices. Stir to coat. Place in oven and bake for 25 minutes.

and we had steamed broccoli and sliced garlic and a little bit of soy sauce on top. heavy on the soy but its the first night this week.
