Blackened Tofu.... Light Dinner?

We went to the movies this afternoon, we saw Bedtime Stories, which was pretty good except the hamburger scene which made us all a bit uneasy!!!!! We ate a good amount of popcorn and candy, all washed down with big sugary pops!!! This is not something we do often because, we all end up feeling not so well after wards.
By the time six o'clock rolled around I was getting hungry, so I thought I would pursue an idea that came to mind a couple of weeks ago!
Blackened Tofu Sandwich, with tomato, avocado, spinach and some mayo on English muffin bread. No side items = light dinner!

The blackened tofu was done on the George Foreman grill, I made a marinade with:
2 table spoons Soy Sauce
2 teaspoons peanut oil
1/2 teaspoons liquid smoke
2 table spoons blackening spice mix
some garlic powder, onion powder, and paprika
The tofu marinates for about 15 minutes, then onto the GF grill for about 10 minutes, then flip and spoon on some marinade and cook another 10 minutes. You know it is ready when the tofu is easy to pick up with a fork and it does not fall apart.
The sandwich was a real winner, Addison really liked it, Carter was not very hungry so he had a PBJ.

I miss eating popcorn at the theatre. They use margarine here to make the popcorn and margine is not vegan so it's one of the few things I miss since I became a vegan. It's not so much that I miss the popcorn ... more that I miss the ritual that is popcorn and a movie. The blackened tofu sounds delicious. I am making some for lunch tomorrow.
