Ginger Tofu over Sesame Rice

Recipe By : Adapted from Newman's Own Cookbook by P. Newman/A. Hotchner
Serving Size : 4 Preparation Time :0:00
Categories : Vegetarian Days

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
1 lb tofu -- extra firm
2/3 cup tamari soy sauce or regular soy sauce
2 tsp fresh gingerroot -- grated*
1 lg onion -- coarsely chopped
1 1/2 cups water
1/2 lg red pepper -- coarsely chopped
4 stalks bok choy
1 lg zucchini -- sliced 1/2" thick
1 cup white rice -- cooked
3 tbsp sesame oil

Simmer the tofu in the soy sauce with the gingerroot, onion, and the 2-1/4 cups water for 1 hour.

Allow to marinate for at least 1 hour or up to 5.

Preheat the oven to 350F.

Place the red pepper, bok choy, and zucchini in a large, shallow, ovenproof dish and pour the tofu and marinade over them; raise for 30-60 minutes, depending on how you like your tofu or how much time you have. I usually cook it until the tofu is browned and the sauce is bubbly.

To serve:
Place the cooked white rice on the bottom of the plate. Cover with the braised vegetables and then the tofu.

For garnishes:
Sliced hot peppers, sliced pickled garlic, sambal or other hot sauce/paste.

For variation:
Dice the tofu into large cubes. Cook as called for.
