Tofu and Millet

This post wins the prize for least exciting title.  Even though I do like both millet and tofu a good deal, they sound totally boring together.  But this meal was ridiculously good and came together really quickly.  Millet can be used just like couscous or rice in a pilaf or stir fry and it has WAY more nutrition!

What to do ahead of time:  Cook up some millet and marinate tofu slabs in garlic, lemon juice, olive oil, salt and lemon pepper.

On dinner night you just have to throw the tofu slabs on a hot griddle/grill/cast iron skillet to brown.  Also throw some sliced onions and mushrooms on the grill at the same time.  Then heat the used tofu marinade in another skillet and add the cooked millet so that it can warm up and absorb the marinade.  Add 1 roasted red pepper and the onions and mushrooms from the grill.  A little sprinkle of salt and pepper is all the millet will need before serving alongside the browned tofu.  This meal should probably have some greens on the side, but I skipped the side veg tonight.  

I think I'm going to start mixing up a tofu marinade every week for an easy dinner!

I am not good at coming up with good post titles either. Sometimes it seems easier to just state the obvious, lol.
