Tip-Top Tofu Loaf and Sesame Asparagus
The sesame asparagus was great (p124 Vegan With A Vengeance) but the tofu loaf didn't turn out very well (p 154 La Dolce Vegan). It's probably because I used extra tomato sauce & didn't bake it in a loaf tin (I used a loaf shaped ceramic thing)... The tofu loaf smelled awesome when it was cooking, but the texture left a little to be desired.
I added some roast carrots (just tossed in olive oil, garlic and dried italian herbs) and mushrooms (remove the stem and sprinkle some salt in the middle & bake on an oiled sheet - tasty juicy mushroominess).
It was an interesting meal - that took about 2 hours to prepare..... I'm definitely going to try again, but after I find a new loaf tin!
