Tofunesa properties and recipe

Tofu mayonnaise with arame seaweed and lemon


Ingredients of tofunesa

– 1 block of tofu. Optional to mix ½ block of smoked tofu and ½ block of non-smoked tofu, so that it has a more intense flavor.

½ a lemon

– 1 clove garlic


– 1 tablespoon of water

– 2 tablespoons olive oil

– Arame seaweed to taste, hydrated, and cut to very finite pieces. You can also use wakame, hiziki, sea spaghetti or Nori.

How to prepare a tofunesa

– Boil the tofu with water for 10 minutes. Then you can take advantage of the cooking water, so the less we use (enough to boil), the more concentrated in taste the water will be.

– Remove the tofu and place in a bowl to shred with the other ingredients. Depending on the amount we want, we can mix some of the cooking water.

– Serve with boiled vegetables, seasoning for snacks,… Or simply with some toast.
