Tofu666 over at What the Hell Does a Vegan Eat Anyway posted a picture of a tofu recipe where the tofu was so perfectly golden brown that I had to ask about it. One thing led to another and before I knew it I had made the dish myself. Funny how that happens.
Roasted Garlic Stuffed Tofu Cutlets
- 1 package extra firm tofu
- 1 head garlic
- 1 spring onion (or three scallions, depending on size)
- 1 ts dried thyme
- salt and pepper
Mash up the garlic in the bowl (or using a mortar and pestle if you have one) and toss in the onions, thyme (reserve some for an external garnish if you like), and some salt and pepper. When the tofu is done and slightly cooled, carefully slit it lengthwise to create a pouch (don’t cut it in half). Stuff the pouches with the roasted garlic mixture, arrange in the skillet, and pop everything in a 350F oven for 10-20 minutes or until you get the level of color you like. You can sprinkle the reserved thyme over the cutlets for the last 5 minutes of cooking time.
