Today`s recipe is just yummy!
1 portion smoked tofu
1 portion vegetables (chicory, arugula, red onion)
Herbs & Spices: fresh rosemary, freshly ground pepper, salt
vegetable stock, balsamic vinegar, oil
Preparation: Carefully remove the single chicory leaves, which will be our “boats”. Wash them as well as the arugula. Peel the red onion and cut into fine cubes. In a small pan, heat 2 TBsp. of olive oil together with a twig of rosemary and gently fry the onion cubes until golden yellow. Now add approx. 10 TBsp. balsamic vinegar and reduce over low heat until the vinegar has a creamy consistency. Season with a pinch of pepper and vegetable stock and keep warm.
While the vinegar is reducing, cut the smoked tofu into very small cubes and add a TBsp. of oil to another pan. When the oil is hot, toss another sprig of rosemary in for about 1 minute and then add the smoked tofu cubes. Fry the tofu at high heat for about 5 minutes until it gets a bacon aroma. Now arrange 4-5 chicory boats on the plate, fill them with some arugula leaves and drizzle with the reduction. Finally sprinkle the smoked tofu bacon generously over the top.
