CHILLI TOFU VARIETY BOWL




Chilli Tofu Variety Bowl

















Blogtober Day 2



Welcome to day two of Blogtobertoday's post is of a meal 
which I made for my dinner last night.  It was so good that I

made it tonight , yes I had the same dish for dinner for two nights in a row and it took 45 mins from start to finish. It is a little unusual as it is a bowl which has a wide range of 
elements. This ranges from sliced roast potatoes to vegan 
cucumber raita and chilli Tofu.




Chilli Tofu Variety Bowl


CHILLI TOFU VARIETY BOWL RECIPE 

Dairy free | Nut free| Meat free | Vegan | Protein packed


The dish comprises of four elements 

  • Baked chilli Tofu
  • Roast sliced potatoes
  • Vegan Cucumber raita 
  • Naan Style Crackers 
To complete my bowl I added some lemon slices, pasta and salad  







BAKED CHILLI TOFU 

INGREDIENTS

1/2 a block of Medium Firm Tofu (I used Cauldron Foods)
4-5 tbsp of Chilli Sauce (I used Lingham's Chilli Sauce)

METHOD 


1.  Slice the tofu into cubes, place into a bowl and add 4 tsbp of chilli sauce. 
2.  Stir and ensure that the chilli sauce has covered the tofu. 
Place the mixture onto baking parchment lined oven tray. 
3.  Bake in the oven for 30-45 minutes (depending on your preference I cooked mine for 40) for best results flip over half way to reapply another tbsp of chilli sauce if needed. 
4. Once cooked remove from the oven tray and serve.




ROAST SLICED POTATOES


INGREDIENTS

1 potato,thinly sliced
1 tbsp of olive oil 
a pinch of salt 

METHOD

1.  Mix all the ingredients in a bowl, then put the mixture onto a baking parchment lined oven tray and place in the oven at 
200C. 
2.  Remember to flip the potatoes after 10 -15 minutes and cook for another 10-15 minutes depending on the thickness of the potatoes. 
3.  Once cooked remove the tray from the oven and wait for the potatoes to cool before serving. 

VEGAN CUCUMBER RAITA

.


INGREDIENTS 

5 tbsp dairy free coconut yogurt 
grated or chopped cucumber 
1 tsp of dried mint

METHOD 

I put all of the ingredients into a bowl and stirred. That was it 
simple !  





NAAN STYLE CRACKERS 



INGREDIENTS 

2-3 tbsp of plain flour (self raising and strong flour work too) 1-2 tbsp of water 
a pinch of salt 
a pinch of black onion seeds (I used cumin powder) 
a rolling pin, glass jar or cup (to roll the dough) 


METHOD 

1.  Place 1 tbsp of flour, 1 tbsp of water in a bowl and mix until combined. 
2.  Add another .5 tsp of flour and knead the mixture for 1 minute until the dough mixture is no longer sticky or squishy 
but soft and mouldable like plasticine. 
3.  If any problems occur add more flour if the mixture is sticky and add more water if the mixture is to dry then knead. 
4.  Once the desired consistency has been reached roll out the dough mixture as thinly as possible using a rolling pin or glass jar. 
5.  Then create a teardrop / mini naan shape  with a knife 
and place into a oven tray (I cooked mine on the same tray as the tofu).   

6.  Cook in the oven at 180-200C for 10-15 minutes until golden brown (depending on the thickness of the dough) . Then serve.
