1 pack extra firm tofu (14 oz. pack chopped)
½ cup raw hazel nuts
2 cups butternut squash (chopped)
½ cup water
1 tsp salt
½ tsp black pepper
1 tsp rosemary leaves
¼ tsp lemon juice
1 whole red pepper (chopped)
½ of whole red onions (finely sliced)

3. Put the cookie sheets in the oven and bake. Bake hazelnuts for 5-7 minutes and tofu for 20 minutes.
4. In the meantime combine water and squash in a saucepan. Cover and boil for 5 minutes or until the squash pieces are soft.
