Tofu Toasties Asian style

Firm tofu can be incredibly versatile and fabulously tasty, it can also be gross, squidgy, tasteless and generally not where you want to be in life…tofu toasties

The other night I was fiddling about and came up with something glorious, I will probably come up with a better recipe but for now here is the first go:

1 packet of Cauldron organic firm tofu, sliced into fingers/slices

2 heaped tbsp. of crunchy organic peanut butter

2 tbsp. maple syrup (if you use agave only use 1 spoon as it is much sweeter)

2 tsp tamari

1 tbsp. sesame seeds

1/3 courgette spiralised

1/4 spring onion chopped finely

1 few coriander and Thai basil leaves ripped

half a lime for squeezing at the end!

 

Heat a griddle pan on a medium to high heat and brush with coconut oil. Cook each finger/slice of tofu even on each side until browned and crispy. In the mean time mix up the tamari, maple syrup, peanut better and sesame seeds in a small bowl until you have a smooth paste – add a tbsp. of water to create a more fluid paste.

Toss the greens together. top the tofu fingers whilst still warm with the paste and garnish with the green bits. squeeze fresh lime on top and take a bite! Delicious.

 

Yes its vegan, yes its delicious, no eating vegan food doesn’t make you a a long haired hippy living in a commune in the woods – although you might want to try it just in case it is for you!
