Tofu-Meatballs

This is a really great recipe that gives tofu a lot more flavor but also has the benefits of eating soy and less meat. You could also make it with beef. We think it is pretty cool that you can hide the tofu this way!  It was easy and good. It is a great recipe to make in the t-mix.

Steamed tofu and pork meatballs

  • 1 large onion
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 1/3 of a green pepper
  • 8 oz tofu (250 grams)
  • 8 oz ground beef/pork (250 grams)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 squirt soy sauce 
  • salt
  • 1-1.5 tablespoons flour
  • 2-3 tablespoons breadcrumbs
  • pepper
  • herbs: nutmeg, basil, oregano, or others you like.

Chop the onion, pepper, and garlic finely in the t-mix for a few seconds. Add 1 teaspoon of oil and saute for a few minutes (8 in the t-mix). Add remaining ingredients and mix. The tofu will kinda disintegrate into the meat mixture. Form into approximately 1 inch meatballs and coat in breadcrumbs. Place in a pan to steam for 15-18 minutes. I Put it in the t-mix varoma and cooked it  while making tomato sauce. Its great to use the energy the t-mix is already producing. 

We ate it with pasta but you could also make an Asian soy/ginger/garlic sauce that i bet would be delicious. I’ll update other sauces next time I make make it.
