A hearty and delicious pasta dish. Tofu is cooked with tomatoes, lemon juice, basil and orzo before being topped with crumbled feta cheese. This dish will also do well with crumbled goat's cheese. Serve as a substantial lunch or dinner.
Wow & wow again have just made & eaten this scrummy yummy recipe so easy to make and so enjoyable to eat thoroughly recommended you won't be dissapointed. :-) - 01 Feb 2016
This is a great, easy recipe - very creative! Here are my suggestions: Use only one cup of orzo. For a nice texture, brown orzo to golden color in a tablespoon of olive oil over medium heat, then pour in water and boil it. Brown tofu first in oil, then add onions and garlic. I also added shredded carrot and a chopped squash that had been languishing in the fridge. Mushrooms would be good, too. Fresh basil kicks this into high gear (love it with the lemon!), and don't skip the lemon or feta - these two things make this recipe great! If you don't like/have feta, fresh Romano is good, too. Thanks for a wonderful, beautiful, healthy dinner. - 24 Oct 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Looks like it would have been a 4, but with the changes I made, it was outstanding. Keep in mind I cut the recipe in half (other than the tofu) I added 2 cubes of veggie boullion to the water in which I boiled the orzo to add some flavor. I cooked the tofu, onion and garlic as directed, but also added zucchini and a jar of marinated artichoke hearts (chopped). Instead of tomatoes I used a can of diced tomatoes w/ garlic. After I stirred it all together, I mixed in about 1/3 cup of parmesan and then sprinkled the servings with feta and parm. It really was just fantastic, especially for a nice, healthy meal. Thanks for the great idea! - 01 May 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
