This meal reminds me of the simple meals I used to have as a kid. Many a meal consisted of some kind of vegetable, potatoes and tofu (yes, tofu was the staple as opposed to meat in my house).
Here we have broccoli with garlic and lemon, baked potatoes with yogurt and seasoning salt (in this case Morton's), and pan fried tofu. The tofu was marinated in 2 tablespoons of soy sauce, orange juice, sake, and some crushed garlic. After marinating the tofu is pan fried until brown on each side (about 2-3 minutes each side). Then the marinating sauce is added to the pan and cooked down until it almost all cooks away and thickens. And we're done. Once all of the elements are placed on your plate, it is best to just chop everything up and mix it together, cover with a light dusting of freshly grated parmesan cheese, and eat with gusto.
