international respect for chickens day: balsamic blackberry tofu

today is international respect for chickens day! in honor of them enjoy chicken free nuggets, eggless treats, and pop in chicken run. learn more about "broiler" and egg-laying hens

below is a delicious cruelty free tofu dish. the sweet blackberries, full of antioxidants, mix wonderfully with tangy balsamic vinegar. plus, im sucker for purple food. 

balsamic blackberry tofu
-package of tofu
-1 cup of frozen blackberries
-1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
-1/2 cup vegetable broth

1. mix the vinegar, broth and blackberries in a shallow contained. 
2. marinade the tofu for at least 30 minutes. 
3. you can bake the tofu (with juice) at 350 degree for about 20 minutes, or you can throw them in a pan with juice. 
i threw in some walnuts in mine for some healthy omega 3 fatty acids. serve over wild rice!

mulberry season is approaching and they would be perfect for this recipe. let's go harvest them from the arboretum sometime.
