Vegan MOFO VI: What's for lunch?

LUNCH (that Im in the middle of eating):

Tahini Tofu with mushrooms sauteed in EB and whole grain flax bread. The tofu recipe still needs some tweaking but good nonetheless. Dessert was Oatmeal Cookie Bites left over from last night.

Tahini Tofu*

1 tbsp tahini
1 tbsp soy sauce
2 tbsp water
1/8 tsp garlic powder
1/2 package (225g) medium firm tofu, cubed

Preheat oven to 350F.
Mix together first four ingredients (I did this in a magic bullet).
Lay tofu out in a greased baking pan and pour over sauce. Turn to coat evenly.
Bake tofu for 12 minutes each side.
Turn on the broiler and bake another 5 minutes per side or until browned.

*Definitely still needs some work. Im thinking sprinkling with nutritional yeast before the broiling. There was something just.... lacking.

Oatmeal Cookie Bites

1/2 cup packed, pitted dates
1/3 cup rolled oats
1 tbsp. cocoa powder
1 tbsp. agave nectar
pinch of both salt and cinnamon

Process all ingredients in a food processor and form into 8 equal sized balls.
(I put all of them in the freezer and let them thaw for a few minutes before eating but they'd be equally delicious unfrozen as well.)
