Variation – Tandoori tofu

Not a post really, but the tandoori tofu that I.made for dinner yesterday. The point is, tofu is really versatile, and you can really use any sort of rub you like on it. I use a ready made tandoori spice, and add 1/4 cup of yogurt, a tbsp of ginger, and salt to taste. And then if you’ll look at the entry for jerk tofu, the method is there. Remember to.drain your tofu. The more water you get out of it before and while cooking, the better.


Jerk tofu

I’m sure I’ve made a posting on tofu and the right way to prepare it before. Tofu is like a sponge. It will absorb the spices or sauces that you soak it in. If not, tofu can be very bland.

Jerk tofu

1/2 block extra firm tofu sliced into 1/3 inch slices
1 tsp olive oil
3-5 tbsps jerk spice rub, your favourite
Salt to taste

Combine all ingredients other than the tofu. Rub onto tofu. Allow to marinate for two hours or overnight. In a hot pan, sear tofu. When sufficiently brown, serve over rice, potatoes, salad, etc.


Impossibly easy vegan chocolate cupcakes

This recipe has only two ingredients. You heard that right. Only chocolate cake mix and 300 gms silken tofu. I used the plain kind, but really, I can’t wait to try it with mango flavoured tofu and white cake mix. All you have to do is beat it, or put it in the food processor. Dont add any of the eggs, water or oil, just the tofu. Bake according to directions. I am looking for a vegan frosting, but frosted them regularly.
