Monbento Original #34 (Single Tier)

Quinoa, lemon-soy tofu steaks, and some lemon-dill zucchini.

Is it a problem that I had lemon on lemon? Nope; it was nicely lemony!

The lemon-soy tofu steaks are this recipe from Cook for Your Life. I probably should have boiled the sauce a bit more, because mine looks so little like the photo on the blog does, but it tasted really good!

The lemon-dill zucchini is a recipe from Barbara Swain's Cookery for 1 or 2 (1978). It's been a while since I cooked from a book. I would modify this recipe next time, because I think boiling the zucchini made it a bit watery in a way I didn't appreciate, but the flavors were nice.

Also: I did not use gluten-free soy sauce in this recipe, but I've never had trouble finding gluten-free soy sauce, so this is tagged gluten free.


  1. I am a big fan of roasting zucchini! I love all the lemony aspects of this lunch. And the dill lemon zucchini sounds really lovely (boiling smoosh aside).

    1. The flavors were great! For the not-1970s, I think I'll try sauteed zucchini next.
