Cucumber tofu rolls
1 block extra firm tofu
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoons dressing (olive oil, fresh lemon squeezed, black pepper)
1 tablespoon ginger powder
Half teaspoon ground cumin
Salt and pepper to taste
1 cucumber, washed
1. Place the oil in a pan on medium-low heat.
2. Cut 1/8-inch slices along the short side of tofu block. Turn the cutting board and cut two slices along the long side of the tofu, making 36 or so 1 1/2-inch by 2-inch pieces. (drain all the container water first, if using sealed toff)
3. Lay out each piece of tofu in the hot pan. Pour on the dressing and sprinkle on dry ginger powder, cumin, salt, and pepper. Allow to cook for 15 to 20 minutes or until the bottom of each piece is slightly browned. Flip pieces as they’re ready and lightly brown the other side. Set aside to cool.
4. While the tofu is cooking, prepare the cucumbers. Using a mandoline slicer or a regular knife, cut the cucumber lengthwise in 1/8-inch-thick slices. You should get eight slices out of the cucumber.
5. Lay one cucumber slice flat on the cutting board. Place a stack of four pieces of tofu on one end of the cucumber, roll it up, and place a toothpick through the center to keep it in a tight roll. Repeat until you make eight cucumber tofu rolls (two servings). Eat it up.
