Totally Tasty Tofu Pasta

Yet again this is another pasta dish! I’m sorry guys but I love past and its fun to make!

This time I decided to use aubergine in the sauce and it was so good!! Well I had leftover roast aubergine and courgette so I threw them in with some other bits to make the sauce and it was so good.

Method:

  • Cut aubergine into slices and season with salt and pepper, put into the oven for 15-20 mins on a high heat. Doing the same with the courgette/zucchini if desire
  • While that is cooking put your pasta into a saucepan and put on the heat,
  • Chop onions and add to a frying pan with a little water so they don’t burn, I didn’t use any oil in this dish I just used water
  • wait until the onions are softened just a bit and cut tofu into chunks and add to the onions in the pan.
  • cook the cauliflower, I use microwave bags and they take no time, but you could cook in a pot with water until soft.
  • after about ten mins you should add the spices to the tofu and onions and add a little water to make sure they don’t over cook.
  • when the cauliflower, courgette and aubergine is cooked add to a blender with the non-dairy milk, nutritional yeast and ยฝ teaspoon of garlic granules and paprika, blending until smooth.
  • Drain the pasta, put on a plate, top with sauce and then the tofu chunks and serve.

Falafel obsessed!

Guys the falafel obsession is real! Recently I’ve been straight up eating rice and falafels nearly everyday, they’re so simple and so easy!

So I don’t fry them of anything like that, I actually use an air fryer but you could fry them too.

Handful of spinach

1 cup of breadcrumbs

ยฝ cup of oat flour

ยฝ can of sweetcorn

ยฝ tablespoon of cumin

ยฝ teaspoon of paprika

Method:

Throw everything in a blender, starting with the chickpeas and the sweetcorn, then the spinach and herbs and spices then the breadcrumbs and then the flour.

Shape into balls and fry them by means of your choice, they take around 12 mins in the air fryer and until each side is golden if your shallow frying and around 14 mins in the oven ๐Ÿ™‚

To make the oat flour I just put 1 cup of oats into a blender and blend it till it’s a flour.

Then for the breadcrumbs I just blended up two slices of wholewheat grained bread and voila, money saved!
