Project 365: Day 320

I’ve never tried tofu before so I decided to give this recipe a go to see what it tasted like. Turns out it’s very bland so this recipe needs a bit of seasoning.

Tofu and Spinach bake

To make

Heat one tablespoon of olive oil in a saucepan and fry one finely chopped onion and one finely chopped garlic until soft. Add two 400g tins of chopped tomatoes, season and bring to the boil. Simmer for 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, fry one more finely chopped garlic in a saucepan and add 400g of spinach. Wilt and drain the excess liquid. Hand blend a pack of 349g silken tofu until smooth and add to the spinach with a pinch of nutmeg. Allow to cool.

Preheat oven to 200C and layer the bottom of a baking dish with half the tomato mixture. Divide the spinach mixture between 300g of lasagne sheets, roll up and place in the baking dish. Pour the remaining tomato mixture on top and bake for 30 minutes. Then sprinkle four tablespoons of breadcrumbs mixed with one more finely chopped garlic on top of the lasagne and drizzle with olive oil. Bake for a further 10 minutes and serve with salad.

Aubergine and feta tart

To Make

Preheat oven to 180C. Bake two aubergines (scored length ways) for 40 minutes then leave to cool. Line a baking tray with a 320g sheet of ready-rolled puff pastry  Score a line 3cm from the edge all the way round and brush the outside with a bit of milk and beaten egg. Turn the oven up to 200C and cook the pastry for 15 minutes.

Finely slice two cloves and fry in olive oil until golden. When the aubergines have cooled, remove the skin and mash in a bowl. Add the garlic to the mash, season and mix. Slice another aubergine with the skin on. In batches, fry both sides of the slices in olive oil. Remove the pastry and press down the inside with the back of a spoon. Layer it with the mashed aubergine mixture and then sprinkle over an even layer of feta cheese (200g). Then layer with the fried aubergine slices. Sprinkle with a few sprigs of thyme and bake for a further 15 minutes in the oven. Serve with salad.
