When I was trying to fall asleep yesterday, I decided I would make tofu for dinner today, but I wasn’t quite sure how to make it interesting, since I’d had it a few days ago. So I remembered a recipe I used to make ground beef, replaced it with tofu and realised that it was even better!
Preparation time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 30 minutes
- 1 package of 454 of organic tofu
- 1/4 cup (62.5ml) of organic tamari sauce
- 4 garlic cloves
- 1/4 cup (62.5ml) of olive oil
- 4 organic onions
- 1 organic onion broth cube
- 1tbsp. (15ml) of curry powder
- 1 tsp. (5ml) of turmeric
- 1 tbsp. (15ml) of gluten free all purpose flour
- 1 1/2 cup (375ml) of water
- 1/4 cup (62.5ml) of rice vinegar
- 1 tbsp. (5ml) of nutritional yeast
- 1/2 cup (125ml) of organic cranberries
- 1/2 cup (125ml) of organic walnuts
- In the food processor, coarsely chop the tofu to get the texture and size of ground beef.
- In a medium bowl, combine the tofu, the tamari sauce and 2 garlic cloves. Set aside for about 30 minutes. It could be less.
- In the meantime, thinly slice the onions.
- Heat your oil on medium and cook them for about 20 minutes.
- Add the turmeric, the curry powder, the pepper and the flour then continue cooking for 2 more minutes or so.
- Put in the water, the rice vinegar, the nutritional yeast, the cranberries, the walnuts and the tofu then cook for 5 or 10 more minutes.
- You can have it with wild rice.
As I always do, I asked my readers to take part, maybe tell me what they think about my recipes and give me some tips, as well. What do they think of this one? Do they like it, did they make someone important to them happy with it? Did it help them save some time? Simply, what do our readers say about this recipe? Here it comes:
“The tofu recipe is excellent. I used it for one of my friends who is vegan, but it worked well for me also. I put the tofu in the food processor with the oil and tamari sauce, mixed it with a spoon, then added it to the pan, along with some onions chopped very fine so they were not only cooked through but semi-mushy. It was an excellent meal that also gave me great energy. The cranberries are a nice touch.”
“It’s great to have something new on the blog – try to make more tofu recipes 🙂 I tried this one tonight and I’m very happy with it! It has a nice kick at first followed by a sweet aftertaste – which I really like.”
“Hi, I will be eating my tofu recipe tonight. It’s one of my favorites! Thank you for posting. I have also made the Tofu scramble”
“You are so lucky to live in Montreal, full of great restaurants and good vegan food. If you are wondering what to do with your leftovers, you can turn them into sandwiches. You could even have a couple of them for breakfast if you want.”
“I love this post! There are great pics too! I am making the recipe now.”
And a little note before I will finally say goodbye to y’all: You’re 1 000, no 1 000 000, no 1 000 000 000 times more awesome and nice and excellent than every recipe here. Love you, love you all!
