A quick tofu dish for those days when you didn't get around to go to the farmer's market.

Tofu with Spicy Tomato Sauce

Adapted from Annemarie Wildeisen's kochen 3/2011


200 g tofu, diced

2 Tbsp lime juice
4 Tbsp rice wine
1 tsp turmeric
salt and black pepper

1 onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
50 g ginger, minced
2 Tbsp neutral oil
1 Tbsp black mustard seeds
1 can (400 g) diced tomatoes
pinch of chile powder
1/2 Tbsp honey


In a shallow dish, mix together the lime juice, rice wine, turmeric and salt and black pepper. Add the tofu and marinate, covered, in the refrigerator for at least an hour or overnight.

In a skillet, heat the oil and roast the mustard seeds until fragrant. Add the onion and fry on medium-low heat until translucent. Add all of the remaining ingredients, let come to the boil and simmer for about 5 minutes until slightly thickened. Add the tofu and some or all of the marinade and let heat through. Serve on rice.
