Caramelized Tofu with Brussels Sprouts

C is not a big fan of tofu. But seeing that we're both following a strict vegetarian diet (for another 3 weeks), I thought I would try to prepare a recipe that might make her appreciate tofu when it's cooked to her taste. 101 Cookbooks offered a great recipe that we both came to enjoy (with minor alterations)! :)

  • 1 package of firm tofu, cut into cubes 
  • 1.5 tbsp of olive oil 
  • 2 medium garlic cloves, minced 
  • 1/4 cup of chopped walnuts 
  • 3 tbsp of brown sugar 
  • 1 tsp of dry coriander 
  • 6-7 brussels sprouts, washed and cut into wide ribbons salt to taste 
  1. Cook the tofu strips in large hot skillet with a bit of salt and half your olive oil. Saute until slightly golden, about 4 minutes.  
  2. Add the garlic and  walnuts, and cook for another minute.  
  3. Stir in sugar. Cook for another couple of minutes.  
  4. Remove from heat and stir in coriander.  
  5. Scrape the tofu out onto a plate and set aside while you cook the brussels sprouts. 
  6. In the same pan (no need to wash), add the other half of your oil, another pinch of salt, and dial the heat up to medium-high.  
  7. When the pan is nice and hot stir in the shredded brussels sprouts. Cook for 2 - 3 minutes, stirring a couple times until they start to get golden - you don't want to burn them! 
I served it with some pasta (mixed the brussels sprouts with the tofu and topped it on the pasta and mixed). If you think it's too dry, you can add some Soy sauce.

Next time, I would probably add some nice goat's cheese :)
