Tofu is a bland soya curd which many regard as a practical joke played by science and Mother Nature on vegetarians. However, it can be a surprisingly adept vehicle for interesting flavours, having so little of its own, and can provide a useful contrast of texture in vegetable dishes.
I would serve this dish with pilaff rice, a good green salad and warm buttermilk rolls. Should you feel like adding other vegetables such as courgettes, so much the better.
