barbecue baked tofu

sometimes, it seems like dinner is a lot more trouble than it's worth. tonight was not one of those nights - everything came together very easily, fast, and to rave reviews. i even drizzled a little extra sauce around brian's plate (not pictured) to be fancy. oh yeah. i don't bake tofu very often. next time i'll wait until i have something else in the oven at the same time to save energy (i'm thinking about roasted cauliflower...mmm), but this was a bit of a last-minute change to the game plan. so was adding barbecue sauce (on sale) to the baking liquid. yum. the thicker consistency worked really well. my time-saving trick? instead of cooking the broccoli separately and serving on top of the tofu and potatoes, just add your chopped broc to the cooking potatoes about 5 minutes before they're done cooking. mash all together. voila. no muss, no fuss. no mashed potato guilt. it's a wonderful thing.
