Braised Tofu in Lemon Scented White Wine, Quick Pot Potatoes

22 Feb

labeled

Ingredients (serves 4):

  • 24 oz extra firm tofu (I used two packages of Nasoya’s Sprouted Super Firm Tofu)
    • 2 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
    • 1/2 Cup dry white wine
    • 1 lemon, juiced
    • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
    • 1 clove of garlic, minced
    • 1 handful fresh parsley, chopped
    • Salt & pepper to taste
  • QuickPot Potatoesquickpot
    • 1 1/2 lbs baby potatoes (pictured are Yukon Gold), washed
      1 teaspoon smoked paprika
      1 Tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
      2 teaspoons garlic granules
      Salt & pepper to taste
  • 1 batch of my  Big Salad with Quinoa & Balsamic Glazed PeppersThe Big Salad

Directions:

  1. Make sure to scrub your ‘taters!  If you managed to find baby potatoes, no chopping required!  If you didn’t, don’t fret – take out your knife & chop them bite-sized.  Put your potatoes in a large pot and cover with water.P1070858 Bring to a rapid boil & then lower your heat to medium-high.  Boil your potatoes until they start to become tender (fork test: insert a fork into your potato, if it comes out with ease, they’re done!).
    Drain the water & add the potatoes back into your cooking pot.  Keep your stove on medium-high heat & place your pot back on the stove.  Add in your olive oil, paprika, garlic, and salt & pepper to taste.  Saute your potatoes until golden.  Taste a potato & adjust any seasonings to your liking.finished potatoes
  2. Cut your tofu into 1/4 – 1/2 inch thick steaks.  In your frying pan on medium-high, add your oil & minced garlic. Saute for 2 minutes and add your tofu steaks & dried oregano to your pan.precooked tofu Saute on each side for 5-7 minutes on each side, or until golden.  Reduce heat to low-medium and add your white wine & lemon juice.  If you’re in a rush to eat dinner, let your tofu bask in the sauce for at least 5-10 minutes, but I recommend letting your sauce cook down with your tofu, until it is almost absorbed! (Which doesn’t take long, about another 5-10 minutes longer, depending on how high your heat is).  Sprinkle your braised tofu with the fresh parsley.finished tofu
  3. Enjoy eating whole!

During the winter months, I’m sure most North Easterners avoid bundling up and running to the BBQ to cook!  Thankfully, I have a cast iron grilling skillet that is superb for grilling indoors during the winter months (okay, I use it during the summer too!).  This complete nutritious meal cooks up in about 30 minutes & is packed full of nutrition!
