Grilled Tofu with Blueberry & Peach Salsa

I got this recipe from a blog I like called Fat Free Vegan Kitchen, and thought I’d get the ingredients to make this as it’s really summery and the weather was really hot when I bought it all and planned to make it… Unfortunately now I’ve got around to doing it, it’s got all rainy outside, which is a bit of a fail. Oh well, it still tasted nice, and it’s ridiculously healthy as well, which I feel is a necessary balance for me right now, as I’m just about to go out, and as much as my liver hates me, my belly’s really happy :)

I’m aware that I keep bitching and moaning about English weather, and I get a load of emails from people in America and Australia who Β just have no idea of the torment of going out in Lancaster having just straightened your hair and knowing you’ll look awful for the rest of the night. So where are you guys all from? I find it really interesting to know who’s reading, so leave me your location in the comments! That sounded a lot more creepy than I meant. Sorry.

So enjoy the salsa, I’m looking longingly at the photo trying to pretend I’m on a beach somewhere instead of north England.

Oh, and I have a surprise post coming up in about a week… Something cool’s going to happen, so I’ll post photos next Friday!

Tofu & Salsa

Tofu & Salsa

Ingredients

Extra-firm tofu cut into thick slices, plus cayenne pepper, olive oil and maple syrup to marinade

One huge handful of blueberries

One peach, diced

Two tablespoons of lemon juice

Two tablespoons of fresh parsley

Quarter of a jalapeno, diced

Half a bell pepper

Half a red onion

One teaspoon of agave syrup

A pinch of salt

Method

  1. Marinade the tofu in some oil, cayenne pepper and a little bit of maple syrup for a few minutes, then grill for about 5 minutes on each side until golden brown (you could also fry it).
  2. To make the salsa, mix everything together. It should be enough for about 2 or 3 people (I just put my leftovers in the fridge for tomorrow).

Serves 2-3

  2. I hear you on your weather woes. I’m an American in Amsterdam, and the weather here is totally soul-sucking, and completely indescribable to those who havent experienced it. Keep up adding color in your life with berries + the like :)

  4. This sounds so good. I’m definitely going to have to try it. I’m from Lincolnshire but home is now london and I definitely share the pain of straightening your hair and then it frizzing the minute you get outside thanks to the drizzle rain! Gotta love that good old British weather!
