  • 1 Pound extra firm tofu, pressed dry and cubed
  • Cilantro and sesame seeds for garnish
  • 3 cup chopped veggie medley

Directions

Recipe adapted from Bozeman Community Food Co-op.

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Place tofu cubes on a sheet pan and brush with the sesame oil. Bake for 30 minutes, flipping the tofu halfway through. In a bowl, combine the garlic, ginger, jalapeno, soy sauce, wine, maple syrup and Sriracha. Transfer the tofu to a baking dish and pour 2/3 of the sauce over it, stirring gently to combine. Bake for another 15 minutes.
  3. Heat the remaining sauce in a pan on the stove to reduce. While the tofu bakes, sauté the veggies in a little bit of olive oil to desired doneness, spooning in a little bit of the reserved sauce. Serve the tofu and veggies over brown rice. Drizzle some of the reduced sauce over the dish and sprinkle with chopped cilantro and sesame seeds. Enjoy while dining outdoors in summertime or looking out the window at a snowstorm, with gratitude for the season. Yum!
