Sticky Tofu for Bonfire Night


Forget about a mug of tomato soup or a veggie burger while you watch the rockets and Catherine wheels: this recipe would be perfect for a Bonfire Night party. We have served it with noodles or rice and stir-fried or roasted veg, but it would be equally good as a tasty burger or hot dog-replacement in pitta or French bread, with barbecue sauce (for our simple BBQ sauce recipe see here). The delighted "oohs" and "ahhs" you'll hear won't be because of the fireworks; they'll be because of your cooking!

Serves 3-4:
about 425g firm tofu
2 tabs agave- maybe maple syrup would also work well here; let us know if you try it...
2 tsps miso
2 tabs lemon juice
1 tsp tamarind concentrate
1/2 tsp hing
1/2 tab paprika
1/2 tab medium Madras curry powder
1/2 tab melted coconut oil
about a tab each of yeast flakes and ground linseeds for sprinkling

  • Cube the tofu and set aside.
  • Whisk all the other ingredients together until thoroughly combined. If you want it sweeter and stickier, just add a little more agave.
  • Toss the tofu in the sauce and place on a lightly oiled baking tray. Brush any remaining sauce over them.
  • Scatter the yeast flakes and ground linseeds on top.
  • Cook straight away in an oven preheated to 180C until warmed through.

    1. Hing is a pungent powdered root that is used in South Asian cookery instead of garlic and onions; we use it as a substitute as we don' cook with them. Hope this helps? Thanks for commenting :)
