    Todd's Terrific Tofu Adovada

  • 4 lbs. firm Tofu
  • 6 tbs. flavored oil for sautéing (peanut, sesame or avocado)
  • 2 medium onions, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp. oregano
  • 2 tsp. crushed coriander seed
  • 2 tbs. honey
  • 1/3 cup New Mexican red chile powder
  • 1/4 cup ancho chile powder
  • 1 tbs. chile caribe
  • 3 tbs. sherry vinegar or rice wine
  • 1/4 cup toasted pumpkin seeds
  • 2 cups vegetable stock
  • salt to taste
  • Place several layers of paper towels on a cookie sheet. Slice the tofu in half lengthwise and place the halves on the towels. Cover the tofu with several more layers of paper towels and another cookie sheet. Then put some heavy objects on the sheet to weight down the tofu. Heavy canned goods will work. Allow the tofu to sit for 20 minutes, then cut it into 1/2 inch cubes.

    Heat the oil in a large skillet, add the cubed tofu and sauté until golden brown. Set aside.

    Pour 1 cup of stock into a blender and add the rest of the ingredients except for the remaining stock. Puree for a few seconds, add the stock and blend again. Pour into a large bowl and gently mix in the sautéed tofu.

    Refrigerate for 1 to 2 hours. Then take the mixture out of the refrigerator and let stand for about 10 minutes.

    Pour the mixture into a deep saucepan and bring to a boil, turn the heat down and simmer for one hour. Adjust seasonings and serve.
    Serves 5 to 6
