  • ½ pound (227 g) firm tofu, patted dry and sliced into ¾-inch pieces
  • 4 tablespoons (60 mL) olive oil, divided
  • ½ teaspoon (1 g) grated lemon peel
  • 2 cups (200 g) gluten-free corn pasta (preferably farfalle)
  • ½ pound (227 g) mushrooms (portobello or porcini), washed and sliced
  • 4 cloves garlic , minced
  • ½ teaspoon (3 g) kosher or fine sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon (1.1 g) freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 cups (60 g) arugula
  • 4 tablespoons (32 g) pine nuts, toasted


  • Brush tofu with 1 tablespoon olive oil, season with grated lemon peel, and set aside for 30 minutes. Grill the tofu slices for 2-3 minutes per side – the tofu is very delicate, so turn it carefully. Set aside when grilled.
  • Boil the pasta according to package instructions, drain, and set aside.
  • Meanwhile, heat the remaining olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add sliced mushrooms and sauté for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Reduce the heat, add minced garlic, and season with salt and pepper. Cook for 1 minute, then add pasta and arugula, and toss everything together. Remove from the heat.
  • Divide the pasta between 2 serving bowls. Top with the tofu, scatter with toasted pine nuts, and serve.
