This recipe I will give is great to make and not so difficult. You can put this tofu-flowers as a side-dish (great with rice or noodles, some Asian food). They look great and are tasty, maybe you can fill the flower-cups next time with some vegetables. Just what you like, you can make a lot of variation on this flower.
So how to make…
For like 8 tofu flowers
ingredients for the tofu-flowers
1 “package” (8 sheets will be cut in 4 pieces each, so you will have 32 squares) of filo/phyllo (each cupcake-tin must have 4 squares of filo/phyllo )
250 gram of tofu, drained the water out
3 cloves of garlic, minced by a garlic press
spices you like to put on the tofu (I used 1 teaspoon chilli pepper and 1 teaspoon of garam masala again! but maybe you like sweet chilli sauce more)
some parsley for decoration
hand full of roasted pumpkin seeds
1 medium onion cut in little pieces
some oil for frying the tofu
some celtic salt/pepper
a frying pan
Ready for making it?
get the filo/phyllo out of the freezer and set aside 30 minutes, so you can cut it very well and the layers will get of very easy (without breaking)
In the meanwhile you can cut the tofu in squares and bake it in the frying pan so they will get golden brown, shortly bake the onion and garlic also in the frying pan. Now you can mix it very well together with the tofu use the spices you like on tofu, mix again and put of the fire.
Time to cut the dough, it will be perfect now for preparing. Cut one sheet in 4 equal squares and put them one by one in the cupcake tin, each sheet rotate 45 degrees from the one below him, so you will have already a nice flower.
Put in 1 tablespoon of the mixture, now do the rest of the cupcakes!
Put them all on the baking sheet and bake on 200 degrees Celsius in the oven. Check on the half of time if the sheets aren’t getting black on the corners (I had that problem once ;))
When the dough is getting crunchy they are ready for use.
Beautiful for decorate the plate and nice to eat! Finish if you like with some salt and pepper
