Okay, I tried really hard to get a good picture of this one, but it is not one of this fancy dishes. It just comes packed full of nutrients but low on carbohydrates. Zucchini also provides a lot of vitamin C and fiber. And of corse, the tofu makes it a protein bomb.
For 2 portions you need:
- 750g zucchini
- 200g nut-tofu
- 4-5 garlic cloves
- 6tbs olive oil
- 60g pine nuts
- 60-80g dried cranberries
- 1tbs margarine
- herbs for decoration
Cut the nut-tofu in cubes, if you can not find nut-tofu use smoked or regular one. Wash the zucchini and cut them with a vegetable slicer or a potato peeler in thin, long strips.
Blanch the zucchini strips in salted, boiling water for about 1 minute then drain and refresh with cold water.
Heat the olive oil in a large pan and fry the tofu for about 5 minutes, add garlic, pine nuts, and cranberries. Mix in margarine and zucchini and roast for another 5 minutes.
Decorate with fresh chopped herbs before serving.
