These balsamic tofu steaks are made with pan-fried slabs of tofu in a sweet and zippy balsamic reduction, then served with a smoky mix of sautéed bell peppers and fresh basil. Combine them with rice or couscous to create a delicious vegan meal.
I love balsamic vinegar for my savory vegan recipes. Most of the time I use it in small amounts — adding a dash here and there to turn up the flavor in my cherry tomato pasta or tempeh sandwiches.
Today’s recipe is all about balsamic. We’re cooking up big slabs of balsamic tofu and topping them with smoky sautéed red bell peppers and fresh basil. This dish is a great alternative to the vegan wraps I made with balsamic-glazed tofu. This dish has similar flavors but uses tofu instead. You can learn more about it here. The main course itself.
The balsamic tofu is also very easy to prepare and can be prepared in advance.
