Sauteed Green Beans and Mushrooms
Had a great supper last night with lots of fresh produce from friends' gardens and the farmers market. Easy, too. I had a lot of onions and peppers that I sliced up and sauteed in a little garlic-infused olive oil with some baby portabellos. Then I steamed some fresh green beans and tossed those into the mix with a splash of white wine, salt, fresh cracked black pepper and Italian seasoning. We had baby red potatoes on the side (boiled and tossed with a little vegan butter, salt and parsley).
I also baked some lemon pepper tofu. I pressed the tofu and sliced it about 1/2 inch thick. Marinated in garlic-infused olive oil and fresh lemon juice. Then I put it on a cookie sheet and seasoned with salt and fresh cracked black pepper. I baked it at 375 degrees for about 25 minutes, turning it once in the middle. I don't have a picture of the tofu because my family devoured it too quickly for me to snap a pic.
It was a simple, fresh meal and everyone loved it. The only complaint was that there wasn't any leftovers for lunch today!
