Miso Marinated Tofu with My Pasta’s Last Stand – Vegan & Gluten Free

Miso Marinated Tofu with Pasta's Last Stand

Gluten Free, Pasta, Vegan | 7th January 2018 | By

Whenever I need to get supper on and I haven’t thought about what we’re going to eat, I inevitably turn to my Pasta’s Last Stand.

Despite the pigeons, kale is one of the few crops we’ve managed to grow this year and having initially dismissed this as an ingredient, I decided I really wanted to use some in a bake.
