Source: From a friend
Serves: 6 to 8

1 lb. tofu, cubed
1/2 cup soy sauce
1 tbsp. wine vinegar
2 tsp. garlic powder
1-1/3 cups millet
4 tbsp. oil
1 medium onion, sliced
4 8-oz. cans chopped mushrooms, drained
1 green or red bell pepper, chopped
3 or 4 garlic cloves, chopped
1 tsp. sage
1/2 tsp. paprika
1/2 lb. grated cheese (Mozzarella and Cheddar)
1/3 cup yogurt
1/2 to 2/3 cup chopped fresh parsley

Marinate tofu in soy sauce, wine vinegar, and garlic powder for 1 day in refrigerator.

Rinse millet in a strainer a couple of times to clean.

Bring 4 cups water to boil with some salt.

Place a large pot on medium heat and add 1 tbsp. oil. Sauté rinsed millet, stir for 5 minutes. Add boiled water to millet. Reduce heat and simmer 20 to 25 minutes.

Heat remaining 3 tbsp. oil in large skillet, add sliced onions and stir a minute, add mushrooms, green pepper, garlic. Stir a few minutes. Add drained tofu and herbs and cook for 10 minutes.

Remove tofu mixture from heat and mix with cooked millet, grated cheese and yogurt. Add parsley.

Dump into oiled 9"x13" pan. Cover with foil. Bake at 350°F for 30 minutes.

Poster's Notes:
This is a wonderful recipe for using tofu. I got it from a friend years ago.

This is the recipe as it was given to me. Never content to leave well enough alone.... I put my spin on it.

Used olive oil, added a grated carrot and some chopped celery and garlic and a large onion. I've also used fresh mushrooms and sautéed them.

Added lots of freshly ground pepper, but no salt at all. (No salt in the millet while it cooks, as the soy sauce makes the dish quite salty).

I used only Cheddar cheese and nonfat yogurt.

And for the dinner, I added more millet and increased everything by a bit more to make a larger than 9"x13" baking dish. Also dropped the oven temperature 25°F for the glass dish. Go heavy on the herbs and spices for taste. More paprika, too. Hope it works for you.
