Another vegetarian Monday? Not really. I made this last week when I had left over tofu from our sushi evening. Like our sushi, this dish was incredibly fresh and also tasty! With the right seasoning, tofu can be quite delicious and the mushroom addition makes this dish very seasonal. Recommended!
1 tablespoon oil
150g tofu
1/2 onion, in cubes
1 garlic, crushed
125g mixed mushroom
1 red bell pepper, in strips
1 tablespoon tomato puree
75ml vegetable stock (I dissolved 1/2 cube stock)
1 tablespoon corn starch, dissolved in a little bit of water
100ml cream
salt and pepper to taste
  1. Fry the tofu in 1/2 tablespoon oil for a minute only.
  2. Fry the onion and garlic in the rest of the oil until it turns transparent. Add the mushroom and red pepper and fry for 5 minutes.
  3. Mix in the tomato puree and tofu, and the corn starch. Keep it for 2 to 3 minutes.
  4. Pour in the cream and season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • When using tofu, seasoning is the key. My suggestions are ginger, ground red pepper, and/or paprika.

  7. Hi Roam Rome! Thanks so much for your comment :) I love light dishes and delicate flavors and, though I am no pro, I love sharing recipes as I know that it can be hard for young house-girlfriend like us (?). Congrats on your engagement! All recipes were made by me and most of them photographed by my boyfriend :)

  9. I'm an experienced taster, too! I look forward to the day somebody starts paying me to do so, then I'll have gone pro. I can assure you that my stars are accurate, also for the veggie dishes.

    My favorites so far are this tofu stroganoff and the spinach quiche. The mushroom risotto is also definitely worthwhile.

  10. I does sounds delicious! I have to try this one day!
