I can't believe I've been doing a food blog for over a year and never got around to giving my tofu in tomato sauce recipe. People LOOVE this dish. Scratch that. People ADORE this dish. It's great comfort food and crazy easy to make. It's essentially an Asian version of a bolognese sauce. You can find fried tofu in your health food store or at any Asian market. I have never seen it in any supermarket. Such a shame.
Tofu in Tomato Sauce
2 packages of fried tofu
1 large onion, roughly chopped
2 cloves of garlic, chopped
2 carrots, sliced into 1/4 inch rounds
1 cup of fake ground beef (like Morningstar Farms)
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon sambal olek or any kind of hot sauce
2 tablespoons of hoisin sauce
1 tablespoon black bean sauce
2 cans of diced tomatoes
1/2 cup of frozen peas
In a few tablespoons of cooking oil saute the onion, carrots, and garlic until the onion is translucent. Add the tofu and the soy sauce, sambal, hoisin and black bean sauce. Saute for a few minutes and then add the fake ground meat, tomatoes and peas. Simmer the mixture on low heat for 20 minutes until flavors marry. Serve over rice. Graciously accept the inevitable compliments.
