O “V” Word continues to celebrate VeganMoFo, a month of incredible Vegan food, com a outra 25 letras do alfabeto. Hoje “O” é para Onion e Apple Relish Tofu. Ok, honestamente, the name of this dish is Tofu with Onion and Apple Relish but I turned it around to make it start with an “O.” Consider it my literary license.
This is a dish that is so easy yet so impressive. Crispy pan-fried tofu slices smothered in a warm, syrupy apple cider vinegar sauce filled with softened chunks of onions and apples. Leva apenas 5 ingredients to create a relish that looks and tastes so complex, people will think you are a culinary genius.
Claro, you can make the same relish and use it to top tempeh or seitan cutlets. It would also taste delicious all on its own as a side dish. The sweet apples and onions mixed with the tangy apple cider vinegar are a marriage made in heaven.
If you’ve been wondering what to make for Thanksgiving dinner, this will make your guests ooh and aah. My Onion and Apple Relish Tofu looks, smells and tastes like autumn. I served it with potato latkes and sauteed Swiss Chard.
It’s a beautiful addition to your menu that will turn any meal into a celebration!
Onion and Apple Relish Tofu
1 pacote extra-firme tofu, drenada e pressionado
½ xícara de farinha de grão de bico
Sal e pimenta a gosto
1 TSP. sálvia seca
1 TSP. cominho em pó
2-3 Tbs. óleo vegetal
1 large red, Spanish or Vidalia onion, cut into large pieces
2 sweet apples, cut into large pieces
3 Tbs. vinagre de maçã crua
1 ½ cups low-sodium vegetable broth
2 Tbs. manteiga vegan
Salsa, chopped, for garnish
Pré-aqueça o forno a 200 graus.
Corte o tofu em 8 fatias. Eu faço isso cortando o bloco ao meio transversalmente, em seguida, corte cada metade do bloco em 4 fatias retangulares finas.
Coloque a farinha de grão de bico em uma placa. Season it with salt, pimenta, sage and cumin. O revestimento de ambos os lados das fatias de tofu com a farinha. Shake off any excess flour.
Calor 2 Tbs. oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Refogue as fatias de tofu até que estejam douradas e um pouco nítida em ambos os lados, sobre 4 minutos de cada lado. Transfer the tofu to a platter and put it in the oven to stay warm and crisp.
Add the onion and apple to the skillet. If you need more oil, add another tablespoon. Increase the heat to high and cook until the onion is wilted and the apples are golden brown. Isso deve levar cerca 3-4 atas.
Add the vinegar to pan. Bring it to a boil until the vinegar thickens and becomes syrupy. Add the broth and return it to a boil. Cook until the broth reduces to about half.
Remove the pan from the heat, add salt and pepper. Whisk in the vegan butter until smooth.
Top the tofu slices with the red onion and apple relish. Add parsley for garnish. Sirva ainda quente. Desfrutar!
