Peanut Tofu And (More) Granola

The granola revolution

I ran out of granola so fast that I had to make another batch. This is half of my third batch of granola because I doubled the recipe so it would last longer. I have been topping my cereal, lOptimun Power Breakfast, off with home made granola every day .
The second picture is of my cereal on top of John Robin's Food Revolution. Which, by the way, is a must read book. My original granola recipe can be found here.

Griled Peanut Tofu

I love trying new marinades for tofu. I used the idea for the peanut noodle sauce to create a salty-sweet taste.

I mixed peanut butter, soy sauce, fresh garlic, and a few drops of sesame oil in a plastic bag and added the tofu. I let the flavors seep in for about 30 minutes in the fridge. Then I grilled the tofu for ten minutes on each side. I took the tofu off the grill and let it sit in the left over marinade for a few mintues.

It was good but I want to add more peanut butter next time. I will try to remeber to write down the amounts of what I use.

Both the tofu and granola look KILLER. Yum.

So many books, so little time. I have been slowly working my way through Robins, Diet for a Small Planet. It's hard to get through the factory farming realities. I'm interested in reading the Food Revolution next.

I like to add TVP granules in my granola to give it a little extra protein.

Thank you so much urban vegan, glade you approve. Dori, TVP in granola sounds like a great idea. I was wondering though, should I boil the TVP first or jsut bake it dry?
