100% Whole Wheat Orzo Pasta
Italian Brown Mushrooms Sautéed in Olive Oil
Creamy Tofu Sauce
Sauté sliced Italian Brown mushrooms in olive oil.
Meanwhile cook 100% whole wheat orzo al dente.
Season mushrooms with a small amount of sea salt and fresh ground pepper.
Add some of your favorite fresh herbs. I added fresh savory.
Try it on all your vegetables!
Blend one block (14 oz.) of firm tofu with 1/2 c. canola oil, 1/2 c. water and 2-3 T. each low-sodium Tamari and Bragg Liquid Aminos until smooth.
To serve: Place warm pasta in bowls, top with a generous amount of mushrooms and then the tofu "cream" sauce. Add your favorite fresh herbs (we had chives on hand). For a nice presentation, let everyone mix their own ingredients at the table.
