I have mentioned before how Kayla does not eat meat. I am experimenting with different things to ensure she has a variety of meals to eat. She really likes tofu and I wanted to surprise her with a dish I hoped she would love. I wanted something pretty simple so I pulled out my slow cooker, tofu and Old Bay Seasoning.
Old Bay Seasoning is what I reached for because I wanted to make sure the tofu had flavor. I usually just grab the seasoning salt and call it a day but I wanted something different. I have only been using Old Bay for the last year or so and we like how it tastes.
I used super firm tofu because I wanted it to hold its shape for the most part. Tofu is really easy to prepare for a meal. The most important thing is to press all the water out. I cut a small slit in the container and poured out the water. I then pressed the tofu while it was still in the container with my fingers. After that I placed a paper towel on a plate, next the tofu and then another paper towel. I used my huge stock pot with a bag of potatoes inside to press the water out. I waited 10 minutes, changed the paper towels and did it again. Another 10 minutes and all the water was pressed out.
- 1 block of tofu (pressed and cubed)
- 3/4 cup water
- 3 tablespoons Old Bay
- 2 tablespoons of lemon juice
- 1/4 cup mayonnaise
- 2 tablespoons of celery (minced)
- 4 deli rolls (toasted)
- Put the tofu, Old Bay and water into slow cooker. Cook on low for 6 hours
- In a bowl mix the tofu, mayonnaise, lemon juice and celery
- Serve on toasted deli rolls
These Slow Cooker Tofu Rolls turned out great. My son tried them with a little bit of hot sauce and liked the flavor. I will be making this again. It is a delicious way to have tofu and by using a slow cooker there is no worries!
