Orange-Sesame Tofu and Coconut-Lime Basmati Rice (and 3rd Veganiversary Giveaway Winner TAKE TWO!)



Eat, Drink and Be Vegan was the first vegan cookbook I ever got and I've loved pretty much everything I've ever made out of it. Being that I bought it well over four years ago, I thought I was at the point where I'd tried all the recipes that piqued my interest already. Some idle afternoon not that that long ago I grabbed it off my cookbook shelf and did a quick flip-through for the first time in ages and lo and behold - a baked tofu recipe that I hadn't yet tried!

Grilled on an outdoor BBQ is probably my favourite way to prepare tofu. Baking it in a flavourful marinade is a close second, though. The Cashew Baked Tofu, also from Eat, Drink and Be Vegan, is definitely on my Top 5 Winter Recipes list and I thought the orange-sesame version might be a good alternative for the summertime.



Tofu with the quick orange marinade, made with an orange that I juiced myself thank you very much, and into the fridge it goes for a couple hours.



Fresh and flavourful! Too good to last long enough to become leftovers.


Recipe for the orange-sesame tofu found here and the coconut-lime basmati rice recipe is here.

This is Vegan 3rd Veganiversary Giveaway: Winner (Take Two!)

Unfortunately, I never heard from the first winner of my veganiversary giveaway and my attempts to contact her haven't seemed to work. So, I went ahead and made the executive decision to do another draw via my beloved Random Number Generator:



And the winner is...........
