Tofu with Miso and Tahini Sauce

tofu with miso and tahini sauce

Despite plenty of delicious tofu recipes all over the internet, people still keep telling me that tofu tastes of nothing and that they can’t understand how people “can eat that stuff”. So I’ve decided to add a recipe that I hope will win over all those tofu sceptics out there. The secret here, as is so often the case with tofu, is in the sauce. You have to make the whole recipe here because it’s the sauce that gives the crunchy tofu a savoury touch and plenty of flavour.

I hope this recipe wins you over and you decide to give tofu a(nother) try!
