Tofu Stroganoff

From: EatingWell Magazine, March/April 2014

In this healthy tofu recipe, seared strips of tofu stand in for meat for a vegetarian version of beef stroganoff. We make the sauce rich and savory with mushroom broth and a touch of sherry, and keep the fat in check with reduced-fat sour cream.

  • 8 ounces whole-wheat egg noodles (6 cups dry)
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 5 tablespoons dry sherry, divided
  • 1 large onion, halved and sliced

  1. Cut tofu block in half crosswise. Cut each piece in thirds horizontally, then cut each stack crosswise again into 6 pieces. (You will have 36 strips, 2 inches by ½ inch.) Pat the tofu dry with paper towels and sprinkle on all sides with paprika and ¼ teaspoon each salt and white pepper.
  2. Bring a large saucepan of water to a boil. Add noodles and cook according to package directions. Drain and keep covered.
  3. Meanwhile, heat 2 tablespoons oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the tofu in a single layer, gently stirring every few minutes, until golden brown on all sides, 7 to 9 minutes total. Add 2 tablespoons sherry and cook, stirring, until evaporated, 30 seconds to 1 minute. Transfer the tofu to a plate with a slotted spoon.
  4. Add the remaining 1 tablespoon oil to the pan. Add onion, mushrooms, thyme and the remaining ¼ teaspoon each salt and white pepper; cook, stirring frequently, until the mushrooms release their liquid and start to brown, 6 to 8 minutes. Sprinkle with flour and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Stir in broth and the remaining 3 tablespoons sherry; bring to a simmer. Cook, stirring, until thickened, 3 to 5 minutes more. Stir the tofu into the sauce. Remove from heat and stir in sour cream. Serve the tofu stroganoff over the noodles.

Tofu fell apart while cutting it. Directions should say to dry before cutting it.

One of my favorite dinners to make. It's a very unique vegetarian pasta dinner (no pesto, no red sauce)...the flavor brings me back to my childhood but without the meat! Plus even meat-eaters like it!

Lots of work but tasty This isn't easy to make but it turns out well. Fresh thyme gave it a nice flavor. Hearty for a colder night. Pros: Tasty, hearty Cons: Time-consuming, a bit on soupy side
