This elegant yet simple dish is sure to impress even the most avid meat eater. Featuring a great variety of color and texture the roasted vegetables nestle beautifully between the layers of warm, nutty tofu. The herbaceous lemony marinade adheres to the tofu during cooking and doubles as a sauce for the entire dish with rich green tones. Try this dish for a dinner gathering of friends served over peppery arugula. Although the term Napoleon refers to the layers of this dish and, although very eye-catching, it is not essential for the success of the meal. With only an hour of preparation time, this dish can enhance your meatless weeknight repertoire.

Olive oil

1 Tbsp, extra virgin

Fresh lemon juice

2 Tbsp, about the juice from one lemon


  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Coat 2 baking sheets with cooking spray.
  2. Slice onion in half and then cut each half into quarters. Slice eggplant, zucchini (slice diagonally) and peppers into 1/4-inch slices. Slice tofu across into 8 slices, about 1/4-inch thick.
  3. Place onions on one half of a baking sheet and peppers on other half. Place eggplant and zucchini separately on second baking sheet. Coat tops of vegetables with cooking spray. Roast 15 minutes and then rotate baking sheets; roast 15 minutes more. Turn off oven and leave vegetables in oven to keep warm.
  4. Place rosemary, parsley and garlic in bowl of food processor. Add oil and lemon juice and blend until smooth, about 3 to 4 minutes; set aside.
  5. Spread herb mixture onto both sides of each tofu slice. Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray and heat over medium heat. Place tofu in heated pan and brown both sides of tofu, about 2 to 4 minutes per side.
  6. To serve, place one slice of tofu on a plate. On top of tofu, stack one slice of eggplant, one slice of red pepper and one wedge of red onion; top with another slice of tofu and then top that with one slice each of yellow pepper and zucchini, and another piece of red onion. Drizzle with remaining herb mixture. Repeat with remaining ingredients. Yields one napoleon per serving.
