Servings: 2 people
- 3 tbsp olive oil
- 14 oz firm tofu (ideally get fresh tofu from the supermarket)
- 9 oz pasta (choose your favourite, wholegrain would be best)
- 1 red onion
- 2 clove garlic
- 1 small can tomatoes (1 small can = 14.5 oz)
- 2 tbsp tomato paste
- 1 handful basil, fresh (or 2 tbsp frozen or dry basil)
- 1 tsp maple syrup (or brown sugar)
- salt and pepper to taste
For the sauce
Dice the onion and garlic into small pieces.
Heat up oil in a pan and add the onion and garlic. Saute for 2-3 minutes. Now pour in the chopped tomatoes, tomato paste, basil, maple syrup, salt and pepper. Let it simmer.
For the tofu
Dice the tofu into small pieces or crumble it for a mince like effect.
Heat up oil to medium heat in a large frying pan and add the tofu. Add some salt and let it fry for 15 min or until it’s crunchy. Make sure to stir occasionally, have patience and taste test occasionally! If you crumbled it, reduce cooking time by about 3 minutes.
Once everything is ready, stick some pasta on your plate, pour the sauce on top and add the tofu.
