MAIN DISH

Citrus- Roasted Tofu

Serves: 6 to 8
Two 14- to 16-ounce tubs extra-firm tofu
Orange marinade
Juice of 1 orange
Juice of 1 lemon
2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
1/2 cup orange marmalade
1 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon yellow mustard
1/2 teaspoon dried tarragon
Several grindings of black pepper

1 tablespoon olive oil


8 to 10 baby carrots, quartered lengthwise
1 to 2 cloves garlic, minced, optional
1/3 cup slivered almonds
1/4 teaspoon curry powder
1/4 cup minced fresh parsley
Preheat the oven to 425 F.
Cut each block of tofu into 8 slices (about 1/2-inch thick) crosswise. Blot well between several
layers of paper towel or clean tea towel.
Combine the ingredients for the marinade in a small mixing bowl and whisk together.
Arrange the tofu in a single layer on a parchment-lined roasting pan. Spoon the marinade
generously over the surface of the tofu. Roast for 15 minutes, or until the tofu begins to turn
golden.
Carefully flip the tofu with a spatula, and spoon more marinade over the surface (you will likely
have a bit left over). Roast for 15 minutes longer, or until the tofu is firm and golden.
Meanwhile, heat the oil in a small skillet. Add the carrots, garlic, almonds, and saut over
medium heat, stirring frequently, until both are golden. Remove from the heat.
When the tofu is done, transfer to a rectangular or oval serving platter or two, depending on their
size, with the slices slightly overlapping one another. Sprinkle the carrot-almond mixture evenly
over their surface, followed by a sprinkling of parsley. Serve at once, passing around the
additional marinade to those whod like more of it.

Vegan Spinach-Mushroom Lasagna

I almost named this The Worlds Easiest Lasagna because this dish is super easy to make. Using no-boil
noodles and pre-made sauce cuts prep time down so much that you can throw this together pretty quickly and
your dinner guests will think you slaved away in the kitchen for hours. I served this at a party once and it was a
huge hit, so I can attest to its omnivore friendliness. This tastes even better reheated the next day. Contributed

Serves: 8 or more

Tofu Ricotta
14-ounce package firm tofu, drained

1/2 cup raw cashews

1/4 cup lemon juice

2 cloves garlic

2 tablespoons vegetable broth

1 teaspoon dried basil

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup nutritional yeast

6 ounces baby spinach

1 small onion, chopped

2 teaspoons olive oil

1 pound mushrooms, chopped

1 package no-cook lasagna noodles (I used gluten-free brown rice noodles)

28-ounce can tomato sauce (or you can make your own, of course)

1 cup Daiya mozzarella-style cheese (or more, to your liking)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.


In a food processor, blend together the tofu, cashews, lemon juice, garlic, broth, basil, salt, and nutritional
yeast. Process until the mixture is thick and looks like ricotta cheese. Add more vegetable broth if the mixture is
too thick. Add the spinach and pulse until its mixed in.
Saut the onion in the olive oil until translucent. Add the mushrooms and a pinch of salt and cook until theyre
soft.
Spoon a quarter of the tomato sauce over the bottom of a casserole dish. Layer a third of the noodles over the
sauce. Spoon another quarter of the tomato sauce over the noodles, followed by half the ricotta and half of the
mushrooms. Cover with a third of the noodles.
Then spread another quarter of the tomato sauce over the noodles, followed by the rest of the ricotta and
mushrooms. Cover with the rest of the noodles and spread the rest of the sauce over the top. Cover with foil
and cook for 30 minutes. Remove the foil and sprinkle the Daiya cheese over the top. Bake for another 15
minutes.

Vegan Cashew Parmesan-Style Cheez, optional


Instructions
Cook the pasta in plenty of rapidly simmering water until al dente, then drain.
Meanwhile, heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in an extra-large skillet or steep-sided stir-fry pan. Add the
onion and saut over medium heat until translucent.
Add the garlic and continue to saut until the onion is golden.
Add the wine and cauliflower and cook, covered, for 3 minutes.
Stir in the broccoli, asparagus, squash, and canned tomatoes, and dried herbs. Bring to a simmer, then
cover and cook over medium heat for 5 to 7 minutes, or until all the vegetables are tender-crisp.
When the pasta is done, drain it well and combine with the vegetables mixture right in the pan, if it's
large enough, or in a large serving bowl. Add the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil unless you used oilpacked sun-dried tomatoes, in which case add a bit more of their oil if you'd like.
Stir in as much basil as you'd like, and season to taste with salt and pepper. Add dried hot red pepper
flakes if using them.
Serve at once. If desired, pass around some vegan Parmesan cheese for topping each serving.

Pasta with Pesto, Potatoes, and Green Beans

Serves: 6

1 recipe Spinach-Basil Pesto


3 medium-large red-skinned potatoes, preferably organic
10 to 12 ounces medium shell or bowtie pasta, preferably whole grain
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
3 to 4 cloves garlic, minced
8 to 10 ounces fresh green beans, trimmed and cut
into 1-inch lengths (or substitute thawed frozen cut green beans)
Vegan Parmesan Cheese for topping, optional
Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
Prepare the pesto as directed in the recipe and set aside until needed.
Scrub the potatoes well, and cook or microwave them until just done. When cool enough to
handle, cut into large dice (dont peel) and set aside.
Cook the pasta in plenty of rapidly simmering water until al dente, then drain.
Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large skillet. Add the garlic and saut over low heat until golden. Add
about 1/2 cup of water followed by the green beans and steam, covered, until tender-crisp.
Remove from the heat and let stand uncovered until needed.
SPINACH & BASIL PESTO
Makes about 1 1/2 cups (enough for 10 to 12 ounces of pasta)

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
Juice of 1/2 lemon, or more, to taste
1 to 2 cloves garlic, crushed, optional
1/4 cup pine nuts or 1/2 cup walnut halves

or regular spinach, stemmed, chopped, and well washed
Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

Combine all the ingredients except the salt and pepper in a food processor and pulse on and off
until the mixture is a coarse, even puree. You may need to add the spinach in batches if your
processor has a small or medium-sized container.
Stop the machine and season gently with salt and pepper; taste to see if youd like to add more
lemon juice. Serve at once stir into hot cooked pasta or use as suggested above in the
headnote.
