Now I've Had Jerk Tofu!


Having never tried anything 'jerk' before, it was hard to know if we did a good job. Our neighbours, who we have a weekly dinner with, assured us that it was indeed the familiar 'jerk' flavour. Regardless, it was a tasty dish for us. The best part of making this dish was the wonderful smell of the marinate. It was fantastic!
We decided to make the jerk tofu recipe into a roti dish, so we made rice and peas, and sauted onions and zucchini to put in rotis with the tofu. J also bought amazing Ginger Beers to go with this too!

The only thing i would do differently is marinate the tofu for longer than the suggested hour. I felt that it didn't soak up enough. We did water down the rest of it into a sauce to put in the rotis, so that was nice.
All in all: Yum Yum.

Ohh...good idea. I bought a box of 'make-your-own-seitan- and have never used it. that should be our next recipe!

Nice combo. West Indies all 'round, mon! You always have such nice dishes, vania!

Stagflation assured me that it's not too hard to make seitan if we have the right kind of flour, so I'm up for that challenge!
