dal, bread and bliss balls. Last night E and I went out so my niece came to babysit Sylvia. I made orange baked tofu for dinner that we all really enjoyed. Almost!
Cindy and Michael. I bought a bag of oranges, forgetting I had some at home already. This seemed a good way to buy them, though I got caught out with the expense of limes. (I am willing those baby limes on my tree in the back yard to grow.)
bread, a beetroot and lentil salad, and a deconstructed garden salad. I didn't mean to be trendy with serving the garden salad on a chopping board but it just never made it to the bowl! I was very pleased when my niece Quin said how much she loves tofu. Sylvia turned up her nose at the tofu but the rest of us kept going back for more. It was a very pleasing meal.
I am sending this to Healthy Vegan Fridays, Gluten Free Fridays and Meat Free Mondays.

Orange baked tofu
Adapted from Viva Vegan via Where's the Beef
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon tamari
500g firm tofu
juice of 2 oranges
zest of 1 orange
juice of 2 limes
1 tablespoon olive oil
4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 tsp mustard powder
1/2 tsp finely grated ginger
1/2 tsp tamari
salt and pepper
Preheat oven to 200 C.
Mix oil and tamari and pour into the base of a baking dish (mine was slightly smaller that 9x13 inch and only just fitted 450g tofu so I didn't do the full 500g). Slice tofu into about 1cm pieces and place in pan not overlapping but tucked close together is fine. Turn each piece so it is covered in the oil and tamari.
Bake tofu for 20 minutes. While the tofu is baking, prepare marinade by mixing everything together and seasoning. I didn't add any seasoning and it was very citrussy but I don't think it needs a lot of seasoning. Flip tofu over when 20 minutes is up. Pour marinade over tofu. Bake 30 minutes until most of marinade is absorbed and tofu is golden brown.
