This bento uses a lot of the vegetables from the CSA box I picked up. Baba ganoush made with the eggplant, spicy sweet potato greens, and grilled okra. Plus grapes, some salad with Cesar dressing, and celery to dip in the baba ganoush.
I’ve been really into salads lately. I found out that romaine lettuce is the best!
Salad: Romaine lettuce, carrot, red onion, cucumber. Spicy green bean pieces and Cesar dressing, finished off with a plum. I’ve had the spicy green beans forever and I don’t know why I never tried them in salad before, they really add a nice bite to an otherwise plain salad.
I love the tanginess of the lemon and cilantro in these tofu “fish” tacos.
1 package firm tofu, cut into cubes
1/4 cup olive oil
1 lime, juiced
1 tablespoons ancho chili powder
1 jalapeno, coarsely chopped
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro leaves
8 corn tortillas
Shredded white cabbage
Vegan sour cream
Thinly sliced red onion
Thinly sliced green onion
Chopped cilantro leaves
Mix olive oil, lime juice, chili powder, jalapeno and cilantro. Marinate tofu in this mixture at least 15 minutes up to 4 hours (the longer it marinates the more flavor it has). Preheat grill to medium-high heat and place foil on top. Place tofu on foil and cook for 20 minutes or until it is lightly browned. Place the tortillas on the grill and grill for 20 seconds. Use 2 corn tortillas per taco. Add tofu to tortilla and use any or all garnishes.
