How many recipes eaten mostly by vegetarians or vegans, are completely unknown to those of you who eat meat and fish? One of these is Mediterranean tofu, which, if you have never tasted it, will prove to be a real surprise. It has a firm texture but crumbly at the same time, and will offer a quite new experience for a palate accustomed to more everyday flavours. The addition of tasty and more typically Mediterranean ingredients such as capers, tomatoes, almonds, oregano, garlic and chili will add a touch of character to the tofu, reassuring the palate with a symphony of flavours which are certainly more familiar. In short, for those who don’t know tofu, this Mediterranean vegan dish will be a real find. On the other hand, for vegetarians and vegans, Mediterranean-style tofu represents an original and diverting take on a typical tofu-based meal.
Cut the tofu into thin slices. Fry the capers and almonds with the oil, garlic and chilli. Add the tofu and let brown, then add a little water and a few drops of tabasco. Thicken the sauce and serve with some fresh tomatoes.
