Tofu comes in all different styles and textures, but our favorite way to eat it is crispy. And if you’ve never tried it yourself, this recipe for crispy tofu steaks with broccoli rabe and romesco (from Lindsay Maitland Hunt’s new cookbook, Help Yourself) is a good place to start.
“One of the funny things about writing a cookbook,” she writes, “is that people will ask you the same question every time: What’s your favorite recipe? As though I could choose! But if I were pressed to name my top ten, this recipe would be in the group. It’s flavorful, easy to make, and packed with plant-based protein.”
The crispy tofu was enough to reel us in, but what really impressed us was Maitland Hunt's ingenious shortcut for the sauce. “Romesco is a classic Spanish sauce made with blended almonds,” she continues. “My thought: Why use almonds when almond butter is already at the perfect consistency? It’s a creamy, tangy delight, perfect with just about anything it touches.” We tend to agree.
