This is yet another method of cooking tofu which was new to me. It was drained and pressed then marinated overnight in one of the Horizons spice blends and a few other bits and pieces then very simply roasted in a hot oven. It resulted in a beautiful piece of tofu which had a light crust and was perfectly seasoned. The accompanying pesto used macadamia nuts and ginger alongside the more usual herbs and oil. The ginger seemed to result in a very light clean tasting pesto which I adored. I served it with simple spaghetti tossed with red peppers, onion and garlic.
This was simple enough to cook midweek after a busy day at work but tasted special enough to serve with a decent bottle of wine for guests or a special occasion. One of our favourites so far.
To celebrate our attempts to cook through the Horizons books, the Book Publishing Company have very kindly donated a copy of each title to give away. Today I’m giving away the first book. All you need to do to win is leave a comment telling us your favourite way to eat or prepare tofu, and we’ll pick one using a random number generator. We’ll be able to ship internationally, so the contest is open to everyone. If you don’t win this one, keep coming back because Tami will be posting about the second contest later in the month.
You’ve got until 9pm (UK time) on Thursday 6th October.
