Tofu Burger with Light ‘Slaw and Smoky Marinade

For as long as I’ve been vegan I’ve hoped and wished for a perfect, tasteful marinade that bled all the way through my tofu and stayed there, instead of just soaking the outside and losing flavor. Last week, my dreams came true. This marinade is what you’re looking for. I drained my tofu, cut it into slabs and let it sit overnight smothered in the marinade with my finger’s crossed. I breaded it, lightly fried it, and placed it on a bun with some light coleslaw and my favorite BBQ sauce.

BBQ Seitan Sausage with Yellow Rice and Baked Broccoli

I found some BBQ sauce and a stray onion and decided that would be enough. I also found a box of yellow rice that had fallen into the depths of the pantry to await my rescue. Today was it’s day to shine and I thought it went hand and hand with this BBQ sausage and broccoli. Quite filling on a rainy day, too.

They’re awesome to cook with and have a really pleasant texture. To top it all off, the smell .. it’s overwhelmingly exciting.
