The days are getting shorter and evenings are cooler here, finally, so I'm actually cooking with my oven instead of subsisting on cold foods. One of my favourite meals is a simple vege roast with tofu.

I quarter large, floury potatoes and put into a large roasting dish. Add quartered tomatoes (about six), slices of onion, chopped garlic, a big splash of oil (about 2Tbs?) and an even bigger splash of red or white dry wine (maybe 1/4 - 1/3 of a cup). Toss round so everything is covered with wine and oil. Bake in a moderate oven for 20 minutes then add chunks of capsicum (red and orange bell peppers) and slices of firm tofu. Toss round again and bake for another 20 minutes. Add whole button mushrooms and herbs etc and bake for another 20 minutes.

It all comes out garlicky and delicious. There is always too much for me to eat, but it's good for lunch the next day too, and would makes a lovely filling for a frittata or quiche.

Does anyone else have any delicious and simple one-dish baked meals? I am always looking for more possibilities.

That does sound delicious! I've been thinking of trying more dishes with tofu, so I'll definitely have to try this.
