  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Squeeze excess liquid from tofu and wrap in a thick dish towel. Place something heavy on top. Allow at least 10 minutes for the tofu to dry out as much as possible.
  3. Cut tofu into small chunks. Smaller chunks will be more flavorful and chewier than large chunks. Place in a medium size bowl.
  4. Add tamari, vinegar, coconut aminos and garlic to blender. Blend on high until frothy and smooth. Pour mixture over tofu chunks and stir. Allow mixture to sit for a few minutes, stirring periodically to maximize the absorption of the marinade. Transfer to baking sheet.
  5. Bake for 45 minutes, stirring every 10-15 minutes so that tofu cooks evenly.

  1. Basically, you need 6-7 cups of chopped vegetables. Follow my recipe or substitute with what you have. Reduce cooking times for frozen, canned and leafy greens.
  2. Saute garlic, mushrooms, red bell pepper and onions with a few tablespoons of water to prevent sticking for 6-8 minutes. Add kale and frozen peas, cook for 1-2 minutes and remove from heat.
  3. Blend cashews, beans, water, garlic, yeast flakes, lemon juice, onion powder, thyme, salt and pepper for several minutes until creamy and smooth.
  4. Based on your preferences, simply pour cream sauce over vegetables and serve from the skillet. Top with garlic tofu, bread crumbs, croutons and fresh or dried herbs of choice. For a traditional presentation, transfer vegetables and cream sauce to a casserole dish, top with bread crumbs and garlic tofu and bake uncovered at 400 degrees until casserole is toasty on top and heated through the middle. Add fresh or dried herbs and serve.
