2 tablespoons olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
1 teaspoon garlic powder
fresh thyme for garnish

2 tablespoons olive oil
2½ cups of white mushrooms, sliced
1 onion, finely chopped

The tofu

Preheat the oven to 200degC.

Cut the tofu into slices and place it on a baking sheet. Brush with olive oil and sprinkle with salt, pepper and garlic powder and bake for 20 minutes.

The sauce

While the tofu is in the oven, prepare the sauce.

Heat the oil over medium heat, add the onion and sliced mushrooms and season with a pinch of salt. Cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Add the flour, continue cooking and stir for about 5 minutes until it’s absorbed by the mushrooms.

Add 1 cup of broth, stirring until the liquid is incorporated and thickened, there should be no lumps.

Season with black pepper and thyme. Simmer at low heat until thickened (about 10 minutes).
