Good comfort food for lacto-vegetarians or any tofu lovers. Tofu is baked to firm and crisp it and then it is smothered in a slightly tangy mushroom-onion gravy. This makes a generous amount of gravy so that it can go over potatoes roasted while the tofu cooks.
This is a healthy vegetable recipe from the famous Indian chef, Sanjeev Kapoor. Broccoli aint one of my favourite veggies nor is tofu. I like cauliflower and paneer(Indian cottage cheese) instead and wouldn't hesitate to try this recipe using those as substitutes. I hope you enjoy it any which ways!
This recipe is from Martha Stewart's "Everyday Food". This stir-fry is delicious over brown rice or Asian noodles. To toast the cashews, spread them on a baking sheet and cook in a 350-degree oven for about 10 minutes. If you like a sweet-and-sour flavor, add 1 tablespoon of sugar to the sauce in step 4.
This fusion cuisine recipe comes from the Mako Sushi Restaurant in the Sherman Oaks Community of Los Angeles. Cooking this recipe requires the use of two frying pans, which explains why the term "first skillet" and "second skillet" is used in the directions. In the restaurant they seem to keep both pans going at once, but that's not required.
I really enjoyed this! It was inspired by a recipe I saw on Food 911. Careful with the cayenne. (I personally like it a little spicy, but use your own judgment) I also usually only make half of this recipe. (I'm the only one in the house who will actually EAT tofu!)
This recipe came from: http://www.care2.com/channels/solutions/food/1056 It is absolutely divine. It even has non-tofu people singing its praises. It is a great "starter vegetarian" type recipe. I like to serve it with some plain rice.
The crisp and flavorful crust is created by cooking with panko (a type of flaky breadcrumb with a light, coarse texture) and Asian chili sauce. I recommend Sriracha chili sauce, similar in flavor to a spicy ketchup. The direction list looks long because I include instructions on how to press the liquid from tofu. Pressing time isn't included in prep/cook estimate.
This was our 2004 Thanksgiving dinner. A Moosewood recipe. The results were excellent. Per my cousin Amysauntjo: Husband said "It's a keeper." He took it to the non vegetarian diabetic in the family who hates tofu figuring she would refuse and he could keep it for when he visited. She loved it. He said she didn't even thank him because she was busy eating it. Per Us.. The wife and I both loved it. And she did the same thing to us when we shared it with her. I assumed she wouldn't eat it the wife said all she said was "OHH GOOD I like this." and dove right in.
