Other Info

Serves:  2-4.

Additional information: Note: this marinade lends itself to endless
variation- sometimes I add toasted sesame oil for a more delicate flavor or increase the vegan red wine for a "meatier" flavor.

Now, lets make the stroganoff:

Bake marinated tofu cubes in a 350F oven for 10-15 minutes (I cook a little longer if I want a more hearty texture, less for a more delicate texture).

In the meantime:

Heat 2 TBS olive oil and liquid aminos in a deep frying pan until just sizzling. Add chopped onion and reduce heat. Cook onions on low heat until well caramelized (this should take about 15 minutes). Take care not to rush this process as the onions will get too crisp and loose their smoky, sweet flavor.

Increase heat to medium/low and add 2-4 more TBS olive oil, yeast, pinch thyme and the sliced mushrooms. Saute the mushrooms until any liquid they have released is almost evaporated. Add 1/2 C vermouth and reduce for 5 minutes. Add baked tofu, Sour Supreme and pepper to taste. heat an additional 5 minutes.

Serve over brown rice and enjoy the fruits of your labor.


  • 2 cups of herb roasted potatos. (To make herb-roasted potatos, boil about six whole red or white potatos, then let them cool in a pan of cold water. Dice the potatos and spread them on a oiled cookie-sheet. Top them with lot's of herbs and spices. (Whatever you happen to have around will do! I like to use paprika, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder,
  • A mix of whatever veggies that you like. I use the following:
    • Spinach leaves
    • Red bell-pepper sticks
    • Thin carrot slices or triangles
    • Artichoke hearts
    • Thin sliced green onion
    • Zucchini or yellow summer squash wheels
    • Fresh raw sweet corn kernels
    • Roma tomato slices
    • Hollandaise sauce
    • Salsa
    • or an herb salad dressing


Lay out the spinach on a plate, top with the other veggies (except the green onions.) Top the veggies with the herb roasted potatos, then top it all with the green onion. (At this point, I like to warm up the whole thing in a microwave for about 2 minutes.)

Then, top the whole yummy mess with either:

(I sometimes use all three!)

Serves 2.
