Ingredients

HERBED STEAMED & BAKED BABY POTATOES

  • 4 - 5 baby potatoes per person
  • fresh herbs of choice dill, parsley, thyme...

TURMERIC TOFU SKEWERS (for 6 skewers)

  • 350 g firm tofu [1 block]
  • 1 - 2 bell peppers

Marinade:

  • 1 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • 1 pinch cayenne pepper or chilli powder
  • 1 pinch ground cumin optional
  • salt to taste
  • 1 tablespoon water more or less

Instructions

HERBED STEAMED & BAKED BABY POTATOES

  • To make this meal in 40 minutes, start with the baby potatoes.
  • Steam for about 15 - 20 minutes or until soft (when pricked with a fork).
  • Then, sprinkle with some fresh herbs (dill in this case) and transfer into the oven; bake for 10 minutes. No need to grease the potatoes but do grease the tray.
  • While the potatoes are steaming, prepare the tofu for the skewers.

TURMERIC TOFU SKEWERS

  • Mix all marinade ingredients together with the water to make a paste (not too thick) in a bowl.
  • Cut tofu block into 24 chunky square pieces.
  • Drop the pieces into the marinade bowl and mix well, taking care not to break the tofu.
  • Leave the tofu to marinade for about 10 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, cut the bell peppers into chunky pieces.
  • Assemble the tofu pieces and peppers onto bamboo skewers, alternating veggies and tofu.
  • Place on a lightly greased oven tray.
  • Bake at 170 degrees Celsius for 30 minutes, turning the skewers over themselves occasionally to ensure even baking.

PORTOBELLO MUSHROOMS

  • As for the mushroom, drizzle with a bit of chilli oil and some fresh dill; bake for 10 minutes. (Put this in the oven after the tofu skewers have baked for 20 minutes).

GREEN BEANS

  • While all (skewers, potatoes and mushrooms) is baking for the final 10 minutes in the oven, steam a handful of green beans for 5 minutes (you already have the steamer out for the potatoes).
  • Serve immediately and enjoy!
