Spinach and Chilli Tofu ‘Omelette’

by COLETTE PIENAAR

It’s good for breakfast, lunch or dinner to be honest and is just as good cold as it is hot.

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.
