    1 1/2   c            Onions, chopped
    2       ea           Garlic cloves, minced
    1       tb           Safflower oil
    2       c            Mushrooms
    2       tb           Parsley, chopped
    1       tb           Dill, chopped
    1       t            Thyme, chopped
    1       t            Rosemary, chopped
    1       lb           Firm tofu, drained
    1       t            Curry powder
                         Salt & pepper
      1/3   c            Wheatgerm
    1       md           Tomato, thinly sliced
 
   Saute the onio & garlic in oil until the onion begins
   to brown. Remove from skillet & set aside.  In the
   same skillet, saute mushrooms over medium heat,
   covered, until they are just softened & beginning to
   give off liquid.  Stir in the fresh herbs & remove
   from heat. Preheat oven to 350F.
   Place half of the onion mixture into a food processor
   or blender. Crumble in the tofu & blend until smooth.
   In a mixing bowl, combine tofu with the remaining
   onion mixture, curry powder, salt, pepper &
   mushroom-herb mixture.  Oil a 9 pan.  Sprinkle half
   the wheatgerm over the bottom of the pan.  Spoon in
   the tofu mixture & pat down to form an even layer.
   Top with sliced tomatoes & sprinkle with the remaining
   wheatgerm.  Bake until set, about 40 minutes.  Let
   stand for about 15 minutes, cut into wedges & serve.
   VARIATION: Replace thyme & rosemary with tarragon.
