“This is from Deborah Madisons Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone. Baked Tofu smothered with a fragrant stew of summer vegetables and sprinkled with Romano cheese. You can replace the mushrooms with artichoke hearts or asparagus. The sauce MAKES this dish so I often double it:-). It's also great used for pasta salad. This dish can easily be made vegan by omitting the cheese.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place the tofu on a baking sheet and bake in a 450°F oven for about 20 minutes or until it firms and releases its liquid. Set aside.
  2. While the tofu is baking prepare the vegetables.
  3. Warm the olive oil in a large saute pan and add the onions, peppers, garlic, mushrooms and dried herbs. Saute until the onions start turning translucent and the peppers begin to soften, about 5 minutes. Add the parsley, olives, wine and salt and cook until the vegetables are coated in a syrupy sauce, about 8 minutes.
  4. While the vegetables are cooking whisk all the ingredients for the sauce together in a small bowl. Set aside.
  5. Place the vegetables in a large casserole dish and wiggle the tofu down into the vegetables. Pour the prepared sauce over the vegetables and tofu and sprinkle with the Romano cheese. Bake in a 400°F oven for about 25 minutes. Serve with rice or noodles and a green salad.
