Recipe: Roasted Vegetable and Tofu Risotto with SOLocal Tofu


IMG_0990

Spring may have sprung, but it’s still a bit chilly outside. Fire up the oven, and roast some vegetables for this creamy, soothing risotto with our organic, local tofu.

Ingredients:

¾ lb Sol Cuisine firm tofu, cut into cubes

1 lb Arborio Rice

1 Onion, chopped

3 Cloves of Garlic, minced

2 Tbsp. of Margarine

2 Zucchinis

1 Small Eggplant

2 Bell Peppers

½ C White Wine

1 L Vegetable Stock

Salt and Pepper to taste

2 Tsp. Rosemary, finely chopped

2 Tsp. Thyme, finely chopped

1 Tbsp. Olive oil

Directions:

Pre-Heat the oven to 450 degrees.

Slice the zucchinis and bell peppers in half, and the eggplant into 4 slices, toss them with olive oil, salt and pepper and roast in the oven for 12 to 15 minutes. Remove from the oven, let cool down and cut into big pieces. Set aside.

Heat a pan on medium heat. Add the margarine and onions. When the onions start to brown, add the garlic and cook for about a minute, then add the rice, thyme and rosemary. Fry the rice, stirring for about a minute, then add the wine. When almost all the wine has evaporated start adding the stock one ladle at a time, stirring slowly.

Stirring the risotto will make the rice release its starch, making it very creamy, as soon as there’s almost no more liquid at the pot add another ladle of stock, and keep adding one ladle of stock at the time until the rice is cooked. (The rice should be soft in the outside, but still firm in the inside.)You might use more or less stock, depending on which brand of rice you have used.

Add remaining ingredients (roasted veggies and tofu) and serve it right away. Enjoy!
