Tofu minced meat

This recipe was especially made for the ones out there who say they don’t like tofu. Tofu on it’s on is a bit blunt but has an enormous capability to absorb the taste of anyhing you mix with it. On this recipe we freeze the tofu so we can 1) change the texture of it and 2) by defrosting it somehow enhances its absorption capacity. Don’t as me why it simply does. J
500g tofu
2 tbsp soya sauce
1 tbsp olive oil
15g chives chopped
2 cloves of garlic smashed
½ onions chopped
10 plum tomatoes cut in half
70g pineapple pieces
Black pepper
3 tbsp vegetable oil

1 – Freeze the tofu
2 – Take the tofu out of the freezer and leave it in the fridge over night
3 – Squeeze the tofu until you drain the water out of it, it should feel like a sponge
4 – Smashed the tofu until it get granulated
5 – In a bowl mix the tofu with the soya sauce, olive oil, black pepper, salt and set aside
6 – Heat the vegetable oil and fry the garlic and the onion until tender
7 – Pour the mixture to it and stir for about 15 minutes or until it starts to get brown
8 – Add the tomatoes, chives and pineapple pieces and stir for another 5 minutes

This is so good you won't believe you said you didn't like tofu before. Enjoy!
