I love this meal. Ryan always groans when I make it but ends up really loving it. He said it makes him mad because he wants to hate it, but can't. Hahaha what a weirdo!
From Dreena Burton's Vive le Vegan. I've had this book for a long time but really only make the same couple of things. I need to explore it more.
The rice is great! You pretty much just throw everything in the dish and bake! One of the easiest ways to make a mixed rice I've ever experienced. Brown basmati rice ends up so creamy and buttery tasting. Yum! Red onion, tomatoes, kalamata olives, parsley and mint make it a party!
While the rice is cooking, I assemble the marinade for the lemon herb tofu. Yes, this is another recipe for the double batch files....ha! As recommended in the book, I mash up the leftover tofu and mix in some Vegenaise to make a delicious sandwich spread. It's also great cold in a green salad for lunch the next day. Another thing Ryan got irritated about but ended up eating his words. Har har...c'mon! I had to ;)
Although it isn't quick, it is easy! My daughter loves it and always finishes first.
