Oriental Tofu Recipe

In this new world of mine where tofu tastes good, I couldn’t wait to try something with a bit more of a sweet and spicy flavour. Normally in my carnivore only days, I’d use this sort of recipe with beef, but it worked brilliantly with tofu.

Preparation and cook time: 1 hour

Ingredients:

  • 280g Block of firm tofu
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 tsp garlic
  • 1 tsp ginger
  • 1 tbsp soya sauce
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 Sweet potatoes
  • 1 bundle of asparagus
  • 2 large mushrooms stuffed with cheese, spinach and sundried tomatoes

 

Method:

  • Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius
  • Chop the sweet potatoes into 4 quarters
  • In a casserole dish add a layer of tin foil, put the sweet potatoes on the foil and drizzle with some olive oil and salt & pepper
  • Wrap the sweet potatoes up in the tin foil and put them in the oven

While the sweet potatoes are going, get the other food ready:

  • In a casserole dish spray with a layer of coconut oil or use olive oil
  • Chop up the asparagus by cutting the ends off
  • Stuff the mushroom with cheese, chopped sundried tomato and chopped spinach
  • Add the stuffed mushrooms with the asparagus into the casserole dish
  • Pop these veggies into the oven

Get the tofu going:

  • Prepare the tofu by chopping it up and adding it to a baking tray layered with baking paper
  • Pop that in the oven

Tofu marinade:

  • In a bowl mix together the soya sauce, garlic, ginger and honey
  • Put the bowl in the microwave for 30 seconds on high

Once the tofu is almost ready to come out the oven (it normally takes between 15 – 20 minutes to cook) drizzle the marinade over the tofu. Season with salt and pepper. Put the tofu back in the oven for another few minutes.

Dish everything up together.
