salt and pepper tofu

We are nearing the end of day two of NoHotWatergate. Gross. I can't bear to take another cold shower today. And it took over an hour to do all of the dishes with ice water pouring from the tap. I wouldn't mind so much being without hot water if we were camping--or traveling cross country--or on a remote island. But, no. We're still in the same crappy one bedroom apartment... [/whinge]

Anyway, dinner was simple salt and pepper tofu with some sauteed mushrooms on long grain rice. The tofu looks like tofu. It was very easy and tasty, as usual. The mushrooms look kind of gross, but they were actually pretty yum. I marinated them in olive oil, lemon juice, salt, pepper and oregano. To thicken up the "sauce", I added in some nutritional yeast and a little arrowroot. It was a good way to use up a few things that were going off in the fridge.

When our hot water was out I boiled water on the stove to heat up a bath. Would work well for dishes too if you filled one sink with hot water :)
