Slice and bake
Cut your tofu into squares and bake for 40 minutes on 350 F180 C.
Same for the bell pepper, garlic and onion. Cut in big pieces and bake 50 minutes on 390 F200 C. If you only have one oven just add it with the tofu and leave it a bit longer, until there is a lightly burned edge.
Combine and blend
Once done, combine the following and blend:
- The baked bell pepper, onion and garlic.
- Almond milk.
- Olive oil.
- Nutritional yeast.
- Corn starch.
- Chili flakes.
- Vegetable broth.
- Black pepper.
Combine tofu, sauce and pasta
Once blended pour the sauce into a large pan and add the baked the tofu. Let simmer for 5 minutes.
Finally, add your cooked pasta, mix, serve and top with chives if you like that 😁😋.
