Update, December 20, 2010 – wow, I had forgotten about writing this post 1 week into my lunchbox series. They are now a semi-permanent feature here ( 73 lunchbox posts so far), though on hiatus for the holidays. In addition to regular work-day lunchboxes, there are weekend and travel lunchboxes. This recipe below is a great dinner but also great leftover fare for a lunchbox. I am submitting it to this week’s edition of Slightly Indulgent Tuesday over at Simply Sugar & Gluten-Free as well as Gluten-Free Wednesday at the Gluten-Free Homemaker.
Hi everyone. I am so glad you are liking the lunchbox posts I started writing last week. I really would love to make them a permanent feature here. Additionally, I would love to see your lunchboxes, so if you want to do a guest post with a lunchbox, please email me at citylifeeats at gmail dot com.
A couple of weeks ago I mentioned I had made Coconut Lime Tofu, adapted from the Vegan Yum YumVegan Yum Yum and encourage you to check it out but I do think most of the recipes benefit from cutting the salt in half. cookbook. I adapted it to make it a little less rich and gluten-free. I love
Coconut Lime Tofu (Gluten-Free, Vegan)
Adapted from Vegan Yum Yum
- 14-16 oz package tofu, well pressed
- 1/3 cup coconut milk
- 2/3 cup non-dairy milk (I used a mixture of So Delicious Unsweetened coconut milk beverage and almond milk)
- 2 tablespoons tamari
- 1/2 lime, peeled
- 2 tsps coconut palm sugar (I like the one from Navitas)
- Sesame seeds for sprinkling.
Preheat oven to 400 F. Cut tofu block into half length-wise. Then cut each piece into 4 slabs. Oil a casserole dish that holds all the tofu pieces in one layer. Place tofu in casserole dish. Blend the coconut milk, non-dairy milk, tamari, lime, and palm sugar in a blender. Pour mixture over tofu, ensuring the tofu is mostly submerged. Bake for 30 minutes. Sprinkle with sesame seeds.
We had the tofu with a delicious kale salad from Ricki’s blog that has a lime dressing, along with some quinoa and roasted green beans (we used this recipe). I highly recommend the kale salad as a side dish to this tofu. You can read about my rave of Ricki’s blog on my Adopt a Gluten-Free blogger post, and if you would like to read the Adopt a Gluten-Free blogger roundups, visit Shirley’s blog here.
