Grilled Portabello Steaks with Sun-Dried Tomato Tofu
4 Portabello mushroom caps
¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil
¼ cup unsweetened pineapple juice or orange juice
¼ cup Bragg’s Liquid Aminos or soy sauce
2 tablespooons chopped green onions (green parts only)
1 clove garlic, minced
½ teaspoon dried crushed rosemary
Sun-Dried Tomato Tofu
8 ounces extra-firm tofu, cut into ½-inch rectangular slices (2 ounces each)
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
¼ cup chopped sun-dried tomatoes, packed in oil, drained
¼ cup sliced black olives
2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
Place mushrooms in a glass dish with gills up. Whisk together marinade ingredients in a small bowl, and pour over caps. Marinate at room temperature 30 minutes.
While mushrooms marinate, prepare Sun-Dried Tomato Tofu. Place tofu slices in an 8 x 8-inch baking dish, and drizzle with olive oil. Top with sun-dried tomatoes and olives. Add basil leaves, parsley, and garlic powder. Let sit at room temperature 30 minutes. Preheat oven to broil setting while tofu marinates. Put tofu in the oven and broil for 5-7 minutes. Preheat barbecue grill. When grill is ready, place mushroom caps over heat for 5 minutes, flipping halfway through cooking time.
To serve, place grilled mushroom caps on a plate, top with tofu slices, and drizzle a tablespoon or two of the rosemary marinade over all.
Yield: 4 servings (serving size = 1 mushroom cap and 2 ounces of tofu)
- Bragg’s Liquid Aminos is an alternative to soy sauce that has no added salt or preservatives. It’s a certified non-GMO (not genetically modified) liquid protein concentrate, derived from healthy soybeans, that contains 16 essential and non-essential amino acids.
- Soy sauce contains wheat (not whole wheat) and sodium benzoate, which is a preservative. Since the goal of the Daniel Fast is to choose foods that God made instead of man-made, chemically processed foods, technically soy sauce is not allowed. However, some people may choose to modify their fast a bit, and that is totally between you and the Lord. Whatever He is leading you to do, do it. If that means eliminating soy sauce for 21 days, great. If not, that’s great, too.
