Today’s dinner’s a bit of a strange one – tofu balls! I thought I’d post this as it’s one of the first things I learned to cook when I went off to university, and it’s one of my staples that I cook at least once a month or so; in fact I’m a bit shocked at myself that I haven’t posted this recipe yet! It’s a really nice meal to just have for those days when you want something quite tasty but robust – there’s a lot of protein in tofu, so it’s really filling and super healthy.
You only need half a packet of Mori-Nu tofu to make this recipe as well, so I’d suggest making tofu scramble with the rest of it – chuck in some chopped vegetables and a load of spices and it’s just like scrambly eggs – one of my favourite lunches :)
You can serve these with rice, lots of tomato sauce, veggies (like I have in the picture) or maybe even in pasta as sort of ‘meatballs’?
Half a packet of Mori-Nu tofu (about 175g)
Half an onion
One clove of garlic
50g of golden breadcrumbs
10g of plain flour
Half a teaspoon each of chives, basil and cayenne pepper
One teaspoon of soy sauce
A pinch of salt
A little oil or oil spray
- Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius. Chop the vegetables extremely finely, then mix well in a large bowls along with the rest of the ingredients.
- Shape them into balls, place them on a baking tray with a little oil, then bake for 25 minutes until golden brown.
Makes 5 medium sized balls.
