Spinach and Chilli Tofu ‘Omelette’
by COLETTE PIENAAR
You will need:
2 packets of silken tofu
Salt and pepper to taste
pinch of Turmeric or Saffron
a handful of chopped Spring onions
1 Green chilli, chopped
a couple of handfuls of Spinach, peas & any other green veg you have lying around!
Blend the tofu with salt, pepper and turmeric/saffron. Heat some oil in a pan and add the chilli and onions. Saute for a few minutes, add the veg & continue to cook for a couple of minutes until the spinach wilts.
Pour the tofu mixture in and fry on medium-high heat for about 10 minutes (watching it doesn’t burn – I have done this!) then place under a medium grill for another 10 minutes until the top is golden brown.
Be warned – this ‘omelette’ is a little fragile. You can add a couple of tablespoons of spelt flour to help bind it if you want.
Serve with either a green salad or steamed green beans/broccoli etc.
