Sweet & Sour
Pomegranate Tofu

4 servings

  •    SAUCE:
  • 2 Tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 cup chopped onions
  • 3 cloves minced garlic
  • 1 Tablespoon minced gingeroot
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1/2 cup walnuts, ground to a coarse powder
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons pomegranates syrup
       (can be found in an Iranian food store)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  •    dash cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup water

  •    TOFU:
  • 1 16 oz. package firm Chinese-style
       tofu, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1/2 cup frozen or fresh peas, defrosted

  •    GARNISH:
  •    Chopped fresh cilantro

1. Saute onion in hot oil in large skillet until richly browned, but not burned, 8 to 12 minutes, stirring often. (If necessary sprinkle a little water to keep the onions from burning.) Stir in garlic and gingerroot. Add turmeric, cumin and 1/4 cup water. Cover and cook 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from heat.

2. Process onion-garlic mixture, walnuts, and 1/2 cup water in a food processor until thick and creamy, adding a little extra water if mixture is too thick. Remove to a medium bowl and add sugar, pomegranate syrup, salt and red pepper. Mix well and transfer to the same skillet.

3. Bring mixture to a simmer. Add tofu and peas. Simmer, covered, 5 to 7 minutes. During this time, uncover once and gently turn the tofu pieces. Taste and adjust the salt and cayenne. Serve garnished with cilantro.

Best served with plain steamed Basmati rice
