Here's the first dinner I ever cooked: Cornmeal Crusted Tofu, from Veganomicon.
It was an instant success, and has stayed with us ever since.
This recipe is definitely worth checking out!
However, this time when I made it I tried baking the tofu instead of pan-frying it. It wasn't just as good- it was an improvement! Even on an already 'delish' dish. I just made sure to spray it a few times with olive oil while it baked (400 F, 35-40 min). The crust turned out so.... crusty...
Along with the tofu, I
roasted some broccoli with fresh lemon juice, salt, pepper, and EVOO
spray, and also roasted some chopped red potatoes. About five minutes or
so before the tofu was done, I topped some of the pieces with fresh sage
leaves. Southwestern-y decadence!
