I was trying to survive the hot hot early October summer, dreaming of fall, and refusing to turn on my stove..
And I had some tofu in the fridge.
This was the first time I kept the tofu ‘uncooked’ and just ate it cold. It is so very good. And you can eat it with chips or cucumbers or a fork!
The idea for this came from this Curried Tofu Salad.
So many options here.
Refreshing for this late gross summer. Or a week of unhealthy eating.. When is fall coming?
- 8 ounces of extra firm tofu
- 1/3 cup Greek yogurt
- ½ lemon, juice and zest
- ¼ tsp Dijon mustard
- handful of fresh herbs (basil)
- pinch of cumin
Press the tofu between some paper towels for an hour or so. Put something heavy on top, like your cast iron pan.
Put the tofu in a bowl and break it up into small pieces with a fork (or your hand).
In a small bowl, mix the Greek yogurt, lemon juice and zest, mustard, herbs, and spices (whatever you want to add! I just added a pinch of cumin). Then mix it into the tofu. Season with salt to taste.
Eat with whatever you want- cucumbers, chips, slices of bell peppers..
Perfect for when you want to stay away from the stove.
