Vegan Recipes for Sauces

SAUCES

Deeelish Pasta Sauce 
    1/2 block extra firm tofu (not silken)
    vegan Worcestershire sauce
    soya sauce
    crushed/ground tomatoes
    1-2 garlic cloves, crushed
    onion powder
    dried basil
    dried celery
    dried thyme
    red wine (optional)
    salt & pepper
    vegetable oil
Directions:
Press the tofu and crumble it into a pan with a bit of oil. Fry on med-high until the pieces of tofu are golden and chewy (10 minutes or so). Turn down the heat to med-low & add the soya sauce & Worcestershire sauce, mixing it together so all the tofu soaks up the sauces (use enough that all the tofu turns brown).  Add the garlic horror spieleen kostenlos deutsch.
Once the garlic becomes fragrant, add the crushed tomatoes (I like the smooth kind that comes in a big jar) and the spices. I’m very generous with the basil, & put in VERY small amounts of thyme & celery (I know those are weird things to put in pasta sauce, but it’s good!) Mix it all together. At this point you can also add vegetables (steamed first if it’s something like carrots). Stir in a splash of red wine (you can make without, but it’s soooo much better with the wine!) Turn the heat up until the sauce is just starting to bubble vlc player kostenlos windows 8.1. Let it reduce for another 5-10 minutes. It should thicken up during this time & the alcohol will evaporate.
Serve over pasta & enjoy. This makes enough for 2 large bowls (I like having leftovers) but it’s easy to adjust the amounts to make more/less. Adding some nutritional yeast towards the end will also give it a mild cheesy flavour instagram bilder herunterladen online. Textured soy protein works here too but I find tofu has a "meatier" texture. If you use fresh basil, add it near the end. Yum.

My alltime fave that works for most veggies is a mixture of: 2 Tbsp. each of soy sauce and oil (olive or canola), a teaspoon or so of  brown sugar, and a couple of shakes of hot pepper sauce like tabasco . You can personalize it to your liking by adding chopped garlic, leaving out the pepper sauce, adding herbs,  etc discord für windows herunterladen. If you don’t like to use brown sugar, you need some sort of sweetner (try agave nectar) so the marinade will cling onto the veggies. You can broil or oven bake the veggies on a broiler pan, or fire up the grill!! Just baste with the marinade a couple of times after you turn the veggies over. The best veggies with this basting marinde are: sliced sweet potatoes and zucchini vba herunterladen.
