Dijon and herbed baked tofu in pita pockets
makes 4-6 sandwiches or pitas
For the Dijon and herbed tofu: preheat oven to 450 degrees
1 Package extra firm tofu
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 Tbsp. Dijon mustard
2 Tbsp. regular mustard
1 Tbsp. red wine vinegar
1 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
3-4 tbsp. fresh Italian flat leaf parsley
1 tsp fresh rosemary
1/4 tsp dried thyme
Drain tofu and place between two kitchen towels. Place a pan on top and let sit for about 20 minutes to drain some of the liquid from the tofu. Slice tofu into 1/2 inch thick slices. Lay on a baking sheet that is lined with a silpat, parchment, or lightly greased. Generously cover each piece of tofu with the mustard and herb mixture on just the top side. Bake for about 15 minutes.
For Pita sandwiches:
Place a piece of tofu in the pita. Add some lettuce, sliced tomatoes, sliced cucumbers,, sprouts if you have them, and finish with a squeeze of fresh lemon juice and a crack of black pepper. These are also great on Ezekiel sprouted grain bread, which is how my husband had his.
