ROAST TOMATOES

OTHER
  • 1tbsp extra virgin olive oil or coconut oil

  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 65g kale, cavolo nero or spinach, chopped
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • 1medium avocado
  • 1tsp sesame seeds
Instructions
  1. Prepare the tofu marinade by mixing all the ingredients together in a bowl (coconut aminos, apple cider vinegar, nutritional yeast, almond milk, turmeric, paprika, salt and pepper).
  2. Squeeze the liquid from the tofu (I like to put it in a muslin cloth) but just enough so it doesn’t become a paste and can be broken into chunks. Crumble into the marinade. Leave to soak for at least 5 minutes, or overnight.
  3. Preheat the oven to 400F / 200C / 180C fan.
  4. Place the tomatoes on a non stick baking tray lined with greaseproof paper. Toss the tomatoes with the olive oil, balsamic, thyme and salt. Option to slice the tomatoes in half for more of a juicy slow roasted feel!
  5. Bake in the oven for 20 – 25 minutes until soft and slightly caramelised.
  6. Add the olive oil or coconut oil to a non-stick pan. Fry the onion for 2 – 3 minutes on a medium heat until soft. Add the garlic for 30 seconds and then the tofu and cook for 3 – 4 minutes. Add your choice of greens for 1 more minute.
  7. Serve the vegan tofu scramble in a bowl and top with roasted tomatoes, avocado, sesame seeds and a pinch of black pepper.
