 Ingredients List

  • 2 tb Sesame oil or canola oil
  • 1 1/2 c Sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1 c Sliced onion
  • 1 c Diced green bell pepper
  • 2 tb Minced garlic
  • 1 tb Chopped fresh basil
  • 1/4 c Dark barley miso; dissolved
  • -in
  • 1/4 c Water
  • 2 c Tomato puree
  • 1 c Water
  • 1/4 ts Black pepper
  • 4 Tomatoes; blanched, peeled,
  • -seeded and chopped
  • -(optional)
  • 2 tb Tamari
  • 4 Pieces firm tofu; 2 ounces
  • -each
  • 1/4 c Sesame oil


Note: You may substitute .33 cup soy sauce (don't add water) for the
barley miso, and seitan for the tofu

Heat the 2 tablespoons of sesame or canola oil in a medium saucepan.

Saute the mushrooms, onion, bell pepper and garlic with the basil for 5-8
min. Stir in the dissolved miso. Add the tomato puree, water,black pepper
and optional tomatoes. Simmer for 5 min.

Pour the tamari evenly over the tofu. Marinate about 10 min. Heat the
0.25 cup sesame oil in a skillet. Saute the tofu on both sides until
golden brown, 2-3 min.

Put a bit of the sauce in a baking dish 8 inches square. Put the tofu on
the top; cover with the rest of the sauce. Cover the dish. Bake at 350
degrees for 20-25 min. Serve with mashed potatoes and a green vegetable or
over noodles.

Note: This recipe, developed by Ron Pickarski, was given to me in a
newspaper clipping by a co-worker. Rather than tofu, I used seitan that I
had bought in the produce section of the grocery store. It is a relatively
quick meal to put together that even my carnivorous roommate enjoys. As
this is one of only two recipes using seitan that I have, I should
appreciate anyone sharing others that they may have.
