Grilled Tofu, Green Bean Casserole, Roasted Cauliflower

Dinner 7/12

Grilled Tofu

Green Bean Casserole

Roasted Cauliflower

It was a throwback dinner without the scratchy uniforms... ;)

The cauliflower was tossed with 2 tbs. olive oil, salt and pepper to taste and roasted 450F for 15 minutes. Couldn't be easier.

So far this year, one of the many bounties of the Farmers Market has been the green beans -- so in an effort to relive the '70s, we made that staple of the era, Green Bean Casserole. It's an Alton Brown recipe adapted by subbing Earth Balance for the butter, veg stock and almond milk for the half-and-half. An excellent recipe for the onions alone...

The tofu was marinated with 1/4 cup olive oil, 1/4 cup tamari, 2 cloves of garlic smashed, 1 tbs. agave, 1 tbs. ketchup and pepper to taste. Marinate for 30 minutes, and then grill low and slow, basting occasionally with the leftover marinade.
