This sauce is a delicious little concoction, perfect for a quick meal. It is just about the right amount of sauce for a pound of tofu. I simply sliced and grilled the tofu and you can cook it whatever way you like best. As you cook the tofu, you can prepare the sauce, which won’t take more than 10 minutes (just right amount of time for grilling tofu!).
Yields 4 servings:
- 1 tablespoon adobo sauce from canned chipotles
- 2 teaspoons light brown sugar
- Salt to taste
- ¼ cup tomato purée
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 teaspoon soy sauce
- 1 to 2 tablespoons water
- Mix together all the ingredients.
- Brush on seared or grilled tofu as soon as it comes off the heat or onto uncooked slices.
Comments: I don’t think I have any suggestions for this recipe, as it is quite straightforward. If you wish, you can prepare the sauce beforehand and store in the refrigerator for up to one week. Honestly, though, there is no need for advance preparation. The sauce is somewhat spicy but I did not find it overwhelmingly hot.
