Quirky Food Diaries : Part 1 - Tofu Bites

When it comes to food, especially cooking it, friends and family would tell you that I'm somewhat an eccentric. This, of course, means that my meals are often either well received or dissed! There is no middle path. I'm quite a lazy cook (as you have seen here) and my relationship with making food lasts only as long as there's something new or exiting in the kitchen or about the dish.

I do like to try out how different ingredients in my fridge go together though. Among the many, many experiments those around have been subjected to, this one turned out to be well-appreciated, which is why I thought of sharing it with you all (:D)

So... presenting... tofu bites!!

Here's what you'll need:
  • Plain tofu
  • Pizza seasoning - oregano mix, chili flakes
  • Tomato ketchup
  • Zucchini chopped
  • Spring onions chopped
  • Roasted cashews (optional)
Step 1: Cut out strips of tofu about a quarter inch thick and an inch wide.

Step 2: Sprinkle pizza seasoning on them. This one is an Oregano mix from Domino's Pizza consisting of Oregano, Basil, Salt, Pepper among other things.

Step 3: Sprinkle chili flakes to taste. This is Domino's mix again.

Step 4: Squeeze out a line of ketchup on each of the tofu strips.

Step 5: Arrange zucchini pieces on the ketchup for hold.

Step 6: Add in the spring onions between the zucchini.

Step 7: Top with a couple of roasted cashews.

This healthy recipe took like 7 minutes and was consumed in lesser! It was surprisingly filling. What do you think?
