I decided to do Cauliflower Tempura with Falafel, but I failed to buy chickpeas so the falafel had to be swapped for crispy tofu. And I found a quick and easy recipe for flatbread. It sort of worked. The flatbread was the most successful, the tempura was ok but too oily, and the tofu was a little bland. My photos are all pretty rubbish because it’s winter and I lose the light at about 4pm now.
I found this recipe for Tofu Steak on Pinterest, but tracked it back to this It Doesn’t Taste Like Chicken, a vegan recipe blog. I always want to cook with tofu because it’s healthy, but tastes quite bland and once you open a packet it goes off within days. This was a bit of a trial, but here’s what I did.
Trying to get into tofu, it’s healthy and what not, just a tad bland, and also it doesn’t last as long as Quorn because it fridged not frozed. But I saw an idea on pinterest for crispy tofu that’s covered in cornstarch, I don’t entirely know what cornstarch is so I opted to use flour instead.
I used some firm tofu and started off by draining it, and wrapping it in a tea towel, sandwiched between a baking tray and chopping board with a can of soup on top. I left it like that for about 30mins and then cut it into pieces.
