…as if it wasn’t hard enough to please everyone at the dinner table, let’s add tofu!

Vegan Spaghetti Sauce

16 oz. firm tofu (450 g)
1/4 cup olive oil (60 mL)
1 large onion, finely chopped
3 celery stalks, diced
2 carrots, peeled and diced
1/4 cup soy sauce (60 mL)
1/4 cup packed brown sugar (or cane sugar or maple syrup) (50 g)
3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
3 tablespoons Italian seasoning (basil, oregano and thym) (15 mL)
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes (2.5 mL)
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
3 cans (28 oz./796 mL) each, diced Italian tomatoes
1/4 cup tomato paste (60 ml)
salt to taste

Grind tofu in a food processor or with a fork. Set aside.
In a large saucepan, heat oil. Add onion, celery, carrots. Cook over medium-high heat until vegetables begin to soften, about 15 minutes. Add oil, if needed.
Add tofu, soy sauce, brown sugar, garlic, Italian seasoning , crushed red peppers, black pepper, tomatoes and tomato paste.
Bring to a boil and simmer gently over low heat, stirring and scraping the bottom of the pan regularly, for 60 minutes.
Continue cooking until sauce thickens, about 30 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve with your choice of pasta.

Your presentation, humor, blunt-honesty, and the simplicity for the cooking is 'masterpiece' I honestly had happy tears in my eyes. Divine approves

Whenever a recipe calls for two cloves garlic, I always double it. πŸ˜‚

Pretty sure I said almost the exact thing to my family a day or two ago.

Vee Beth Herrera says:

I love tofu


John Stump says:

Just to let you know, I did your recipe tonight and it turned out great. I modified some things, but for the most part it was the same. I was surprised how well the tofu fit in the recipe. It almost gave it a cheddar cheese texture. Thanks.
