Sweet Potatoes and Jerk Tofu

I am trying to clear out old food pictures that never got blogged. This meal was made way back at the beginning of November. The jerk tofu recipe is from Vegan with a Vengeance and the sweet potato recipe is from either Vegan with a Vengeance or Vegetarian Meat and Potatoes (I am too lazy to actually find out).

The jerk tofu was pretty good, but the sauce was very strong and vinegary. We served it over a little bit of rice and it could have used a lot more rice to subdue the flavor a little.

The sweet potatoes were the real star. They were baked in the oven after being steamed. Before baking we mixed the sweet potatoes with a little bit of maple syrup, dried cherries, and roasted pecans.

The meal really could have used something green, but we didn't want to make another side dish.

We've both been sick, so there has not been much cooking going on. I'm hoping that when spring really rolls around we will get the cooking bug because of all the fresh produce. Even though we are luckier than most parts of the country in winter, I still really look forward to more variety.

We have a few more "old" food pictures that we will try to get through in the near future.
