Broccoli with tofu "feta'

Another great recipe from 1,000 Vegan Recipes. I loved this dish. Better then I thought it would be. Can't wait to make it again.

4 cups broccoli florets
2 tbsp. olive oil
1 medium red bell pepper, coarsely chopped
2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
2 green onions, minced
2 tbsp. capers
2 tbsp. coarsely chopped fresh parsley
1 tsp dried marjoram
1 tbsp. fresh lemon juice
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Tofu Feta (recipe follows)

Steam the broccoli until bright green, about 5 minutes. In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the broccoli and cook, stirring until just tender, about 5 minutes. Add the bell pepper, garlic, and green onion, and cook stirring, until just tender, about 3 minutes.
Add the capers, parsley, marjoram, lemon, and salt and pepper to taste. Cook, stirring, to heat through.
Transfer to a shallow serving bowl and sprinkle with the tofu feta. Serve immediately.

Tofu Feta
8 oz extra-firm tofu, drained and patted dry
1/3 cup olive oil
1/3 cup lemon juice
3/4 tsp salt
Cut the tofu into 1/2 inch dice and place in a shallow bowl. Add the oil, lemon juice, and salt, and toss to combine. Set aside for at least 20 minutes to marinade, turning once in a while.
