Smoky Tofu Bits
Carbonara
Servings: people
Instructions
  1. Cook the pasta according to the package instructions - usually 8-10 minutes.
  2. In a bowl add the tofu, liquid smoke and soy sauce and mix well. Ideally you do this ahead of time to let it marinade.
  3. In a large pan, heat the olive oil and fry the tofu for 5-7 minutes until it starts to get crispy and the moisture in the soy sauce has disappeared.
  4. Add the onions and fry until soft, around 5 minutes.
  5. Add the garlic and cook for another minute.
  6. Sprinkle the flour over the mixture ensuring it's all coated well, and cook for another 30 seconds - 1 minute ensuring you do not let it stick and burn.
  7. Add the milk, cream, nutritional yeast, salt and pepper and mix together well. Simmer for 5-8 minutes or until the sauce thickens. If it's too thick, add a splash of milk. If it's not thickening well just let it simmer a little longer.
  8. Stir in the pasta and serve with fresh parsley, and vegan Parmesan if you like. Enjoy!

Korean BBQ Style Tofu Stir Fry
Print Recipe
This Korean BBQ style tofu stir fry is made with tofu marinaded in a rich Korean BBQ marinade for at least 24 hours. Tofu is like a sponge and will soak up all those flavours, so it's well worth marinading at least for a few hours before. The rest of the sauce is used as the "stir fry sauce" so after marinading, there's only a few more ingredients to chuck into a wok and fry to perfection!
