AGAVE LIME GRILLED TOFU WITH ASIAN SLAW AND MASHED SWEET POTATOES

Last Tuesday I Made:
AGAVE LIME GRILLED TOFU WITH ASIAN SLAW AND MASHED SWEET POTATOES for DINNER.

This dish is really made up of 3 different recipes:
1. AGAVE LIME GRILLED TOFU-Baked, grilled and basted with the leftover marinade sauce,which caramelizes the tofu.
2. ASIAN SLAW-Cabbage, green onions, carrots, sesame seeds (both white and black) and julienned sugar snap peas (substituted for the daikon radish) in a sweet but light asian dressing.
3. MASHED SWEET POTATOES- Sweet potatoes, soymilk, earth balance, cashew cream, salt and pepper and 1 chipotle chili.

There are three things that must be done ahead of time: pressing and marinating the tofu and soaking the cashews for the cashew cream used in the mashed sweet potatoes.

All 3 dishes come together in a flash and taste really gourmet.
So many different flavors, your taste buds go wild!!!
Spiciness from the mashed sweet potatoes, sourness from the slaw and sweetness from the tofu.
