CURRIED TOFU PUFFS
Tofu is an enigma for the new vegetarian, yet remains a treasured ingredient for the seasoned vegetarian cook. The newbie asks, "How do you make it taste good? What can I do with it other than chop it up and put it into a salad, or stir fry?"
As an old vegetarian standby, tofu lends itself to infinite creativity in the variety of dishes one can create with it. Here's an easy, make-ahead appetizer that can be enjoyed hot, warm, or cold. There's even a dipping sauce to heighten your pleasure with its exotic flavor. What a great way to begin a meal!
- Combine the tofu, salt, pepper, curry powder, vinegar, lemon juice, green onions, carrot and snow peas in a food processor and process until completely pureed and well combined.
- With clean hands, form 1" (2.5 cm) balls and lay them out on a lightly oiled baking sheet and press down slightly.
- Bake at 400 (gas mark 6) for 15 minutes. Turn puffs over and bake 5 to 10 minutes longer, until lightly browned.
- Remove to a serving platter. Garnish with cilantro and flowers, and serve with ASIAN DIPPING SAUCE. Makes about 20 tofu puffs or 6 servings.
