I adapted this from a recipe I saw on The Polymath Chronicles for Hungarian Chicken. I sized it down for 2 big servings or 3 small servings, and made it vegetarian-friendly (it originally called for 4 chicken breasts to serve 4-6), and wanted to use up some leftover cabbage from making Hungarian noodles...and made it authentic with liberal use of paprika. You can easily make this vegan by using egg-free noodles or pasta. Prep time includes noodle cooking time.
- Boil a quart of salted water and cook the noodles for 8 minutes, you don't want them too soft. Drain and set aside.
- Cut the tofu into cubes or chunks of your liking, and drain well. Make sure all the excess water is out.
- Heat the oil in a heavy-bottomed pot and add the onion. Saute until it starts to brown, about 10-15 minutes depending on how big you cut the pieces.
- Add the paprika and tomato sauce, mixing well. Add the tofu and cabbage.
- Fill the can from the sauce with water, and pour into the pot, mixing well.
- Bring the mixture to a boil, then let simmer on low heat for about 30-45 minutes, an hour if you really want the tofu and onions completely browned. Mix with the noodles for a complete meal!
