Meatless Monday: Kale

It’s back, and we can’t believe it’s already been a week since last week’s meatless Monday, jalepenos!

Seriously, last week just flew by! It went by so fast, in fact, that last night we all of the sudden remembered that the next day was Monday, and we hadn’t even thought about what we were going to make! Thankfully, we had kale on hand. 🙂

Sweet n’ Sour Tofu Crsipy Kale Role-Ups.
Try saying that 10X fast!

These fabulous little wraps are quick, easy, and oh-so-delicious! The kale and tofu gets all crispy, and the veggies soften slightly (tender crisp, you could say). Tonnes of sweet-and-sour flavour packed up with crispy colourful veggies – does it get any better?

The sweet and sour marinade is made of low sodium soy sauce, peach juice, and  ginger. You can use any fruit juice, really, you just may have to adjust for the sweetness level based on the sweetness of your fruit juice.

Served with a peanut sauce, because what’s sweet and sour tofu and veggies without a peanut sauce?

Good question.

Happy Meatless Monday, everyone! 🙂

Sweet n’ Sour Tofu Crispy Kale Roll-ups

Prep time: 45 + 15min
Cook time: 5-10min
Serves: 2-4

Ingredients:

For the tofu:

1/2 block firm tofu
2 tsbp low-sodium sow sauce
3 tbsp peach juice
1 tbsp water
1 tsp ground ginger
pepper, to taste

For the roll-ups:

10 large kale leaves
1 medium carrot, julienned
1/4 medium red bell pepper, julienned
1/2 c. shredded purple cabbage

For the Peanut Sauce:

2 tbsp all natural peanut butter
1 tbsp low sodium soy sauce
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1-3 tbsp water

Directions:

Press the tofu to squeeze out extra water for at least 15 min. Slice it into 1cm-wide strips. Combine all marinade ingredients in a plastic bag or container and allow to sit for at least 30min.
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F.
In the center of each kale leaf, place 2-3 tofu strips and top with the julienned veggies. Using string or strips of cheesecloth (what we had on hand!), tie the roll-up so it will stay together. Place on a baking sheet and drizzle with left-over marinade.
Bake for 5-10min, until kale and tofu are crispy and veggies are tender-crisp.

For the peanut sauce:

Combine peanut butter, soy sauce and ginger in a bowl. Add water, a half-tablespoon at a time until you have reached desired consistency.

  3. What’s ANY food without a good peanut sauce? ;D These are so cute, and I’m all about “tender crisp” and sweet and sour. Love the idea of peach-based sweet and sour.
