Balsamic Tofu, Basil and Onion Mashed Potatoes, Bruschetta

Dinner 6/22

Balsamic Tofu
(stuffed with garlic, rosemary and thyme)

Basil and Onion Mashed Potatoes


...the Eye of Horus is upon you.

Both recipes were adapted from "The Splendid Table" by Lynne Rossetto Kasper.

The tofu was quickly seared in oil, and hit with as splash of tamari at the end. It was removed from the pan and a slot was cut in the side of the tofu which was stuffed with a garlic, rosemary, thyme and salt mixture. From there, it was roasted for 10 minutes at 400F. Remove the tofu from the oven and pop it back in the pan and splash with 1 tbs. of balsamic vinegar until lightly glazed (about 45 seconds).

The mashed potato, basil and onion combo also had some nutritional yeast added before baking, as well as sprinkled on top.
