It’s safe to say that the tofu experiment was a success!
The marinade tasted that great I could have eaten it straight from the bowl,
the tofu was sublime (a bit of sweetness and a bit of saltiness, balanced just right) and the texture was great as well.
It started with a weird block of mushy stuff in a container with lots of liquid.
This part did scare me, how on earth can anyone make something edible with this??
It started to look better after draining and marinating.
Looks quite edible at this point.
It became fantastic after baking!
Looks edible, smells edible, tastes… amazing!
‘Salt and Sweet Tofu’
Cut the tofu in long strips place it on a plate with a couple of paper towels underneath it and a couple of paper towels on top of it, press down from time to time. Drain it for about 30 minutes.
For the marinade you’ll need: 1 T of honey, 2 T of olive oil and 2 T of soy sauce (for about 100 gr of tofu).
Heat the honey in the microwave for about 20 seconds, so it gets a bit more liquid, add the olive oil and soy sauce and stir to combine.
Cut the tofu in any shape you’d like (I diced them for the stir fry but made triangle thingies for on the sandwich), marinate them for about an hour.
Fry them in a skillet on high, till they are golden brown on every side.
(You could add some extra olive oil in the skillet if you like, but they’ll do just fine without, because they’re marinated).
‘Tofu Hummus Sandwich’
Best sandwich ever!
When the tofu is grilled, put it on a slice of bread with sliced tomatoes, lamb’s lettuce and some hummus. Place this under the grill for a couple of minutes so the hummus get’s melty!
This gorgeous sandwich was lunch,
for dinner I had stir fried veggies with tofu dices:
Stir fry veggie mix with: carrots, onion, red and green pepper, broccoli and snap peas. With added tofu of course.
and super hip chopsticks!
Behind the scenes:
1. I always get impatient after a while of chopstick eating… hence the fork 😉
2. What’s up with all the onion, veggie mix? No one can digest all that onion in one meal!
