Tofu Cacciatore and a BEER rec.

So tonight, as planned, I made tofu cacciatore, and since my paper is coming along faster than I thought it would, I decided to post this because it is relatively easy and REALLY good.

Also, if you like beer, you should try Full Moon Winter Ale, because it is AWESOME.



Tofu Cacciatore
1 pound firm tofu in “slabs”

White Wine

½ onion, sliced

½ red bell pepper, sliced/diced

½ green bell pepper, sliced/diced

¼ cup red wine

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 t. dried basil

1 t. dried oregano

½ t. rosemary

Pinch nutmeg

1 14 oz. Can stewed tomatoes, drained

Small can tomato sauce (8 oz?)

Preheat oven to 350. Press Tofu, then space it out in an baking dish (8 x 12 ish). I proceeded to pour some white wine around the tofu, so there was a thin layer in the bottom of the dish, and then coated it with garlic-olive oil. It just needs something to give it a little flavor and moisture.

Bake 15 minutes. Flip, and bake 10 more minutes. Coat with sauce and bake 15 minutes.

Sauce: Sautee onions and bell peppers, 5 min. Add garlic, white wine, and spices (2 min.) Add tomatoes and tomato paste and simmer 15 minutes.

Serve with mashed potatoes and green beans. I only had green beans, because I forgot to buy potatoes today, but it WOULD be good.
