Ingredients (serves 4):
- 1 block of extra firm tofu drained and cut into 1/4 inch triangles
- 1 tbsp. of olive oil
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 cup broccoli florets cut into bite-sized pieces
- 1 cup carrots cut in thin slices
- 1 cup peas
- 1 pound whole wheat pasta (Fettucini is good, but really any kind you like)
- 1 1/2 cup Earth Balance® Organic Soymilk (plain)
- 1 pinch of salt and pepper
- 1 tbsp. of fresh basil chopped
- 1 small onion diced
- 3 tbsp. of Earth Balance® Buttery spread
- 3 tbsp. of white flour
Coat the bottom of a large frying pan with the olive oil heat the pan over medium heat.
When the pan is hot, line the bottom with the tofu triangles and cook them on one side for about 5 minutes or until that side is golden brown, then flip them and cook for another 4 minutes.
Set up the pasta to boil the as per the package instructions.
Put the garlic and onion into the pan with the tofu and sautÃ© until the onions are translucent and fragrant.
Add the carrots and broccoli to the pan, stir everything up and let it cook covered while you make the sauce (about 10 minutes).
In a small sauce pan, melt the Earth Balance® Buttery spread over low-medium heat.
Add the flour to the melted Earth Balance® and stir vigorously to prevent lumps.
Whisk in 1/2 cup of Earth Balance® Organic Soy Milk into the pot. Allow the mixture to become thick (whisking occasionally), then whisk in another 1/2 cup of soy milk. Allow this mixture to become thick again, then whisk in the last 1/2 cup of SoyMilk.
Allow that to become thick (so that it drops off of a spoon rather than pours), remove from the heat and set aside.
Put the peas into the frying pan last and cook for only a few minutes (there’s nothing worse than soggy peas).
While the peas cook, drain the pasta and put it into a large bowl. Pour the creamy sauce over it and toss in the salt, pepper and basil. Mix it all up!
Then pour the tofu and vegetables into the large bowl and toss that all up together (if there is any liquid in the bottom of the frying pan, be sure not to let it get into the bowl because it will make the sauce watery).
Mix everything together well in the bowl and serve! Enjoy!
God this looks good.
