This is a quick and delicious vegan recipe, great to be enjoyed either as antipasto or main course.

Tofu is known as the “vegetarian cheese”. It is made by coagulating soy milk to create curds. Then curds are pressed and compacted into blocks.

Tofu is an important source of plant-based proteins for vegetarians and vegans; it contains no cholesterol, no gluten and it is low in calories.

On its own Tofu doesn’t taste much, however it is an extremely versatile ingredient to be added to either sweet or savory recipes.

How to prepare tofu?

Heat up a pan and add a drizzle of EVO oil. 

Chop tofu into cubes, pour them into the pan, add a bit water, add the yeast, a teaspoon of turmeric, a teaspoon of paprika and two teaspoons of lemon juice, a teaspoon of gomasio (it is a condiment made from sea salt and ground sesame seeds) or salt.

How to cook cruschi peppers?

Heat up a pan and add a generous amount of olive Oil and Di Carlo dried peppers, then switch off the stove. 

Flip the peppers over, making sure they are not burning. When they start to get puffy, it means they are ready

Place your freshly fried peppers on a paper towel: the more they will cool down, the more crunchy (or “cruschi) they will become! 

We advise to fry just fews pieces at a time. 

How to serve it?

Pour the creamy sauce in a bowl, add some cubes of tofu, a sprinkling of our cruschi peppers, a drizzle of EVO oil and a leaf of fresh basil…. enjoy!
