Perhaps I should take a moment to explain my love for making sauces. Sauces were my first foray into the world of cooking. They are fairly simple. They are diverse and easily open to adaptation. They make everything tasty. Back then, Matt would do everything else (cut veggies, cook grain, set the table, etc.) while I made "the sauce." Now of course, I can manage the whole thing by myself, but sauces were a great place to start.
We took the sauce and marinated tofu in it for a couple days. We then baked the tofu, sauce and all, with a mix of veggies--potatoes, onion, yams, peppers. Yum. It makes an excellent stir-fry sauce as well.
