Everybody knows tofu is the only thing a vegan can get its protein from and we eat it all day long, every day.
Of course, this is not true! But I bet I got your attention now. 🙂
I like to get my protein from regular food, so I do not have to supplement a lot. If you have not tried my protein bomb chickpea pizza, please follow this link! (<– click, click, click!!!) I promise you are going to love it!
But today I am going to use the typical vegan protein “substitute”, as people like to call it, to create this very simple but yet so delicious Tofu-Gooseberry-Tartes, which you can prepare for yourself, your family, a party and so on.
For 8 pieces you need:
- 1/4 cube fresh yeast (about 10g or 11/2tsp)
- 1/2 ts sugar
- 1/4 ts salt
- 300g flour (I used whole wheat flour)
- 150g silken tofu
- 1 TB mustard
- 300g red gooseberries (you can also use blueberries instead)
- 50g fresh organic rocket
First of all, mix the yeast with the sugar until the yeast dissolves and turns liquid. Then combine salt with flour and add the yeast-sugar mixture to it, as well as 125ml (1/2 cup) warm water. Stir well as far as possible then knead until you get an elastic dough. Let the dough rise covered in a warm place for about 1 hour.
For the tofu mousse combine the silken tofu with mustard in a blender or use a hand blender, then taste with salt. Wash the gooseberries and cut them in half.
The dough is supposed to double its size. Knead it again softly and part into 8 parts. Roll it out to long stripes, spread over the tofu mousse and cover with the gooseberries.
Bake at 200 degrees Celsius for about 10 minutes. Decorate with the fresh rocket right before serving.
