"Vegetarian salad, with a lot of flavor. Serve as a meal or as a side dish on a bed of lettuce or in pita pockets. Tofu may also be pan fried in a small amount of oil with a tablespoon of curry powder instead of boiling method." — Jennifer J

extra-firm tofu, drained and cubed
diced green onions
salt and pepper to taste
Very tasty. I sauted my tofu with olive oil, curry powder, and honey instead of boiling. I used non-fat plain yogurt and added honey to the mixture. This is an excellent alternative to egg salad or chicken salad. Mine was served with whole wheat pitas! yum!
I made this a while ago and never since. LOL. Just getting around to posting. I must say that I really enjoy curried chicken salad, but also really like tofu. This recipe had nice aspects - grapes, nuts, zing from yogurt, & yummy curry flavor- but I found I had to pan sear the tofu first with garlic and curry powder to get any flavor into it & then with the addition of celery (YUCK) I just couldn't wrap my tastebuds around this one. After the addition of additional dried fruit, I was able to swallow down a bit of it (mostly felt bad abt wasting the food). Too many textures and it almost had a curried cardboard aftertaste. LOL. Just my opinion. Give it a go! You may like it.
I left out the rice and used rasins in place of cranberries. I used a pre-marinated tofu block as the base. It was fantastic with wheat pita!!!
My Personal Note
I tried to keep the preparation for the tofu simple and I agree that it can be bland if just boiled. I usually saute the tofu in oil with cumin or a mixture of spices (like curry as suggested in the reviews) and let it sit in casserole dish in the oven at a low temp. I also interchange raisins and cranberries or use both.
This is an excellent introduction to tofu and I have served it for many people, sometimes incognito. I highly recommend cooking the tofu in a pan, high heat, olive or sesame oil, with some cumin seeds, garam masala, curry powder, etc, beforehand. Also, be sparing with the yogurt and the flavours of the nuts and cranberries will come through.
Very yummy. I am withholding the full 5 stars, though, since I reserve those for recipes I consider "outstanding". I brought this for a potluck to work and received many compliments. As mentioned in previous reviews, I would recommend you saute the tofu in olive oil with a few middle eastern spices for added flavor (I used garam masala, cumin seeds, and curry powder). I also decreased the amount of yogurt by about 25% and added a drizzle of honey. Served plain (not with pitas) and it was very good.
Good but the tofu was a little too bland and didn't really absorb the sauce that well. I wi.ll try again however
This is SO good! Wonderful flavor and textures! Must try for vegetarians!!!
