smoked tofu bites & jacket potatoes

I made this dish as an appetizer when I took part in the Greek version of  “Come Dine with me”.  In case you don’t know, “Come Dine with me” is a daily TV show with  five amateur chefs (different every week) competing against each other, hosting a dinner for the other contestants. Each competitor then rates the host’s performance and whoever gets the highest score is the winner and the prize is 1.500 €.  I was the first vegan to take part on this show. So, this was my appetizer and my guests, who none of the m was vegan loved it. My menu also made it in the book with the 20 best menus of the tv show :-). How cool is that? 😀

For the smoked tofu bites

250 gr smoked tofu
15 cherry tomatoes
2 TS olive oil
1 TS soya sauce
The juice of 1 lemon
1/2 ts oregano
1/2 ts basil
1/2 ts parsley
1/2 salt

For the jacket potatoes

5 medium potatoes
2 TS olive oil
2 TS sea salt

Cut the smoked tofu in triangles. Heat the olive and soya sauce in a pan over medium heat, add the herbs and saute the tofu for 2-3 minutes. Skewer the smoked tofu triangles and place the cherry tomatoes in between.  Top with fresh lemon juice before serving

To bake the potatoes preheat the oven at 220C. Wash the potatoes really good until you remove all the dirt. Prick them with a fork all around. This will help them cook better. Brush them with the olive oil and rub them with the sea salt. Place on the middle rack of the oven (not in a baking pan – just place them on the broiler) . Bake for about 1 to 1 hour and a half. Serve them immediately with sauce of your choice.
