Sesame maple tofu (recipe in the comments from November 23, 2007)
Broccoli slaw salad
This is a recipe that sounds yucky, but turns out to be amazing. Instead of tasting sweet, the sauce is extremely subtle, but brings out the flavors of the onion and peas and infuses the tofu with a yummy richness. It's easy, as you just toss a few things together and then roast unattended. I know the ingredients don't seem, at least to me, like they'll work together, but, trust me, they do!
Chopping: Tofu cubes, sliced onions, broccoli
Time: 35 minutes, much of it inactive
Make ahead: I would probably do this last minute, but you could prep all the ingredients, toss at the last minute and roast.
