What to do with Tofu?
During Maki's Veggie month, I dedicated three out of the seven days of the week to just eat vegetables and fruits. So, it was kinda like being a vegetarian for half the week. Even though, I was thrilled about the month's theme, this was even more exciting! It was a out-of-whim call to do, but in the end it paid off. After twenty-nine days of this half vegetarian/ half omnivore, I decided to go 100% vegetarian. Risky.. yes... but this site has enough yummies to satisfy me. :] So! Onto the reason of the blog: since I went vegetarian, I bought a block of firm tofu.... and I had NO idea what to do with it. I heard of fried tofu, but never had it, and tofu stuffed. To be honest, before today I only had tofu in miso soup. So I looked up an easy recipe and baked some tofu. I marinaded some in a lemon garlic sauce, some soy sauce, and some in teriyaki sauce. Teriyaki was my favorite <3 but I made too much of the lemon garlic tofu so I made my work bento out of it. Lemony garlic Tofu: baked at 400 degrees for 30 minutes. I prepared it in a silicon muffin pan, placing the tofu block in the slot and pouring some marinade over it. It was a little soggy, but not so tasty as it was hot, but it still made a slightly yummy dinner. Haha, I won't lie; this tofu stuff is going to be hard. The rest of the bento was a wedge of swiss cheese, string cheese, a few buttery garlic crackers, celery, and chex mix original. It's been so long since I wrote a bento blog that I am tired. Haha. Night time.
