Smoked Tofu Steaks - vegan and healthy way to entertain
|Tofu steaks with raw mango chutney|
In last week's post, I gave the recipe for the starter (raw sweetcorn chowder) at our last dinner party.
Now for the main course, which was smoked tofu steaks with a raw mango chutney, sweet potato chips and salads.
The one thing I love about this sort of meal, it is so easy to prepare. Not too much slaving over a hot stove in the kitchen, and more time to be with your guests, as most of the work is done well in advance.
We had 8 people at the meal, so I used three blocks of smoked tofu, each cut into 6 'steaks'.
|Sweet potato chips - oven baked|
These were simply baked in the oven for about half an hour, turned one or two times.
At the same time, I baked the sweet potato chips.
See this post for more on making these chips.
A sauce always goes well with steak, so Karen made the raw mango chutney -
Ingredients for this:
1 ripe mango
1 small white onion
1 fresh raw chilli
1 to 2 T lemon juice
Natural sweetener - we used stevia liquid
What to do:
Finely chop the onion.
Cover the chopped onion with the lemon juice.
Add a little of the sweetener.
Finely chop the chilli, and add it in.
Let this all stand for 1 to 2 hours.
Drain off the juice.
Finely chop the mango and add in.
|The choc mint mousse cake|
As for the green salads - well I am not going to detail exact recipes.
Have fun with what is fresh and in season, and go for colourful ingredients.
Nuts and seeds also add texture and protein to salads.
A note on the healthy side of things - where possible use organic produce, and use non GMO soy products.
Next week - the choc mint mousse cake.
