You would be quite surprised how tasty this is. Baked Tofu with Mushrooms slow-cooked in Roasted Pepper Sauce is such an easy meal to make.
I know this might be unusual to see, but trust me because this was really delicious.
Sometimes I want to make one thing and end up making something completely different. This recipe actually came out of a pure experiment.
I wanted to make crispy tofu for my salad, but then when I opened that box of tofu, I thought why not try this.
That’s cooking for me, always experimenting, trying something new and if it’s good I make it again and watch the reaction of my taste testers.
If you are following me, you know that both of my boys dislike mushrooms, but Aleks loves Tofu so four of us enjoyed it except for Daniel, my youngest one.
I believe that you could add other vegetables, like cauliflower, peas, green beans, carrots, leafy greens, etc.
For broccoli, I would suggest adding them the last like 5-7 minutes unless you like mushy broccoli.
I went with just mushrooms because I love them and they enchase the flavor of this dish.
Now, if you’ve never tried tofu, I know hard to believe that somebody never did. However, you’d be surprised how many times I was asked in the store how does it taste?
Tofu might look like a block of softer cheese, but it does not taste like cheese whatsoever. It does not have any flavor that I could point my finger at the certain food.
That’s why it is amazing with other flavors because it absorbs whatever you are using.
For example, if you are going to add to some spicy soup, it will pick up all that spicy flavor of the soup, in this case, it absorbed the aroma and the taste of roasted pepper sauce. It was rather amazing.
If I am making something like this, either baked or smoked tofu, which I will post in the near future, I prep my tofu. I use organic firm or extra firm tofu because it holds the shape better.
I will explain in the recipe how I prep my tofu and of course, how I make this dish. It is super easy!
