“Another favorite from La Dolce Vegan...I like to make keeps well in the fridge all week...then I use it again and again for different things when I am feeling lazy. I like to take left-overs of this and put it in with sliced pan-fried potatoes, just when the potatoes are almost done cooking...yum! Makes great egg sandwiches, too! I like to slice cherry tomatoes in half instead of using big tomatoes, as the little ones are more dependable flavor-wise all year long. I like to add the tomatoes a few minutes before cooking is done, just so they get a bit cooked and shriveled...just my preference. Oh, and drain, drain, drain that tofu before you use it, as always!!!”
