Tofu Satay with Vegetables, Noodles and Peanut Sauce

Tofu Satay with Vegetables, Noodles and Peanut Sauce
Tofu Satay with Vegetables, Noodles and Peanut Sauce

Satay is an Indonesian dish, usually made with meat, skewered onto bamboo sticks and grilled. In this Tofu Satay with Vegetables, Noodles and Peanut Sauce, lemongrass gives a nice splash of citrusy aroma that will be perfectly balanced by the creaminess of the sauce. We also broil the tofu, at the end of cooking, to ensure a nice char on the cubes for maximum texture and flavor. Feel free to put your tofu on skewers for an authentic presentation.

In the bowl of a food processor, place the coriander and cumin, the lemongrass, shallot, garlic, ginger, coconut milk, dates, soy sauce or tamari, lime juice and turmeric. Process until a homogenous consistency is achieved. Pour the marinade in a shallow bowl and add the tofu cubes. Mix until well-coated and let stand for 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 350˚. Make the peanut sauce by whisking all the sauce ingredients in a medium bowl, until smooth and well-combined. Keep aside.

After 30 minutes, place the tofu cubes on a parchment-lined baking sheet, keeping the marinade for later. Place in the oven and bake for 15 minutes. On a second parchment-lined baking sheet, place the broccolette and the red pepper and rub with olive oil, sea salt and pepper. After baking for 15 minutes, turn the tofu cubes over and brush them with the rest of the marinade. Place back in the oven, along with the vegetable baking sheet, and bake for 10 minutes. Take the vegetables out of the oven and place the tofu on the top rack to broil. Broil, while checking to make sure it doesn’t burn, for 3-5 minutes, until the sides are gently charred. Serve the tofu on a bed of cooked noodles along with the vegetables and top with the peanut sauce. Garnish with roasted peanuts, some fresh lime juice, and green onions. Bon appétit!

Lasagna alla Karina

Lasagna alla Karina
Lasagna alla Karina

The Lasagna alla Karina is easy and… full of surprises! You could easily fool a meat eater into thinking it’s a plain old meat lasagna. I’ve started playing with TVP (textured vegetable protein) recently, and oh the possibilities! My mind is bubbling! But first, lasagna! The trick to cut your time is to make your ricotta the day before or the morning of. Each step is easy and quick, though. I wrote the recipe according to each one, with the assembly as the last step.

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 1 celery rib, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced

Instructions

For the tofu ricotta:

Put all the ingredients in the bowl of a food processor and process until smooth. Set aside.

For the sauce:

In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion, celery, and garlic, and sauté until the onion is translucent, about 8-10 minutes. Deglaze the skillet with the white wine (or vegetable broth) and let it evaporate. Add the vegetable broth, bring to a boil, and add the textured vegetable protein.

Preheat oven to 375˚. Pour the olive oil at the bottom of a 9″ x 13″ baking dish. Spread it evenly with your hands on the bottom and the side surfaces of the dish. Pour 1 cup of the sauce at the bottom and cover with 5 cooked lasagna sheets. Top with 1 cup of sauce. Spread about 1/3 cup of the ricotta and top with 5 cooked lasagna sheets. Repeat until you are done with the lasagna sheets, and finish with some sauce. Add the mozzarella. Cover with foil and bake for 20 minutes.

Coconut Green Spring Soup

Coconut Green Spring Soup
Coconut Green Spring Soup

It is now Spring in Arizona. The fruit trees are starting to bud, the seeds are sprouting. And this weather inspired this refreshing Coconut Green Spring Soup. The flavors in the soup, based on coconut milk, ginger, garlic, and lemongrass, are perfectly balanced. You could use other vegetables that cook somewhat quickly, as this soup is ready in a heartbeat! Longest thing is mincing and chopping. I served my soup over some ramen noodles, but any type of Asian noodles would work here. Ramen, soba, pad thai noodles, all good choices! I hope you enjoy this soup as much as my family did!
