Mango Tofu

A taste of summer and the islands, brought to you by that perennial question: what do I do with these overripe mangos?


Ingredients for sauce (for blender)

  • 1 ripe mango
  • 1/2 green mango
  • 1 lime
  • 1 jalapeno
  • 2 T soy
  • 2 t allspice
  • 2 t cinnamon
  • 1 t nutmeg
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 2 shallots or 1/2 onion
  • 2 green onions chopped
  • Tofu not for blender: 2 containers of cubed tofu (you can cube it yourself…). Drained

The Method

1. Cut ripe mango and put into blender

2. Zest and juice lime. Add to blender

3. Add in 1/2 of your red pepper

4. Add in everything else–except your tofu and the green mango. Blend until it forms a smooth paste.

5. Pour sauce into a container or ziploc. Add drained tofu. Marinated r for at least 2 hours (Longer is good)

6. Heat up a skillet with a little olive oil. cook tofu on medium high in 2 batches. It’s ok it gets slightly dark but be careful not to burn it

7. when serving, add green onions, raw bell pepper, and shredded green mango. you could add cilantro and basil, too
