Roast the Red Peppers (at least a day in advance):

1. Cut the red peppers in half, seed them, and broil them till soft,
turning them occasionally. Don't let the meat burn! Remove skins once they

2. Store in a closed container in the refrigerator for at least a day.

Broil the Tofu (can be done in advance):

1. Slice the firm tofu into thin slices and place them in a single layer of
a large baking dish.

2. Make a marinade by blending together the ponzu sauce, soy sauce, crushed
garlic, 1/2 roasted pepper, 1 T of the juice expressed by the peppers, and
1/4 cup of water.

3. Pour over the tofu and let sit for 2 hours or so.

4. Put the baking dish in the oven and broil fairly near the heat until the
sauce is bubbling nicely.

5. Remove from oven, put 2 T of the marinade from the dish aside, and
return the tofu (with the rest of the marinade still in it) to the oven.

1. Mix the cream cheese in a bowl along with all the liquid from the
broccoli mixture. Soften if necessary in the microwave or a pan, in order
to get a smooth creamy mixture.

2. Cook the noodles. I like soba, but wide egg noodles work also.

3. Heat the tofu in the oven or microwave till warm.

4. Combine the cream cheese mixture with the mushrooms in the frying pan,
and add the brocooli mixture and pinenuts. Mix thoroughly, then cook over
medium heat till thoroughly heated.
