Tofu Arrabbiata

I used a healthy tofu with an Italian sauce...it is heaven!

Recipe By: Marco G (https://cookbuzz.com/kitchen/413)
Serves 2 Prep: 10 min Cook: 10 min

Ingredients

Tofu (firm) 1
Potato starch or cornflour as required
Salt & pepper as required
Olive oil as required
Bacon rashers (or pancetta) 2 (50g)
Garlic 1 clove
Dried chillis 2
Tinned tomatoes (220g) 1
Capers 2 tbsp

Method

1
Weigh down the tofu for 5 minutes to remove water then pat dry on kitchen paper. Cut the tofu in half across before cutting into thick strips. Season with salt & pepper.
2
Dredge with the cornflour and fry in a frying pan with 2 tbsp olive oil for 6 minutes until nicely brown all over. Remove to a dish.
3
In the same pan, clean lightly then add a touch more oil and fry the diced bacon and smashed garlic on medium heat until the bacon is crispy.
4
Add the tinned tomatoes and dried ripped chillis (deseed if you like). Add 3 ladles of water then return the tofu to the pan.
5
Reduce the sauce to 1/3. Add the capers and cook for 2 minutes. Transfer to a serving dish.
6
You can sprinkle with chopped parsley or grated cheese if you like.

Tips & Note

Make the bacon nice and crispy - this is essential to get a lovely flavour from its oil to make a great tasting dish. Without this, the sauce will be pale and uninteresting tomato sauce.
