That's why I was so excited to try this recipe for lemongrass tofu. It's marinated and heavily spiced, and it turned out incredible!

I served it with coconut rice (an old favourite Moosewood recipe) which basically involves cooking the rice slowly in coconut milk and turmeric. It's so creamy & delicious!

1 1/2 Cups white rice
1/2 tsp turmeric
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp vegetable oil
1 1/2 cups water
3/4 cup coconut milk
Rinse & drain the rice. In a saucepan over medium heat, saute the rice, turmeric & salt for a few minutes (stir constantly to avoid burning). Then add in the water and coconut milk. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer, covered, until the rice is cooked and all the liquid is absorbed. Takes approximately 15-20 minutes.

I followed the recipe almost exactly, except that I stir-fried some onions, mushrooms and fresh coriander in olive oil and added it to the tofu to make it more of a complete meal.
