Tofu in Broth with Romaine Lettuce

It was embarrassingly easy to make (isn’t every good thing just so?) and the broth pulled everything together beautifully. There is nothing more to say: simply good food!


*This is Blood Type A Diet Friendly*

You will need:

3 or 4 tbs extra-virgin olive oil

1 lb firm or very firm tofu, medium dice

1 large sweet onion, cut into 1/2 moons or large dice

some fresh herbs (choice between or a combination of 4 sprigs thyme, 2 sprigs oregano, 4 sage leaves, 1 sprig rosemary)

4 cups chopped romaine leaves

1 cup vegetable broth (or chicken broth will do also)

1/2 tsp sea-salt

several grinds of black pepper (not for Blood Type A diet)


1 – Put large saute pan or shallow pot on medium heat and add oil. Add onions and cook for 12 to 15 minutes, stirring when needed. Turn heat up slightly and dd tofu. Continue to cook for another 5 or so minutes.
