Anyone who knows me knows I think the Olympics is bullshit.
I admire anyone who gets to the top of their sport, and is good enough to represent their country.
But that’s not what the Olympics is about. Don’t believe the crap spewed out by its organizers, and national sporting officials about the “purity” of purpose, the pride, the sense of unity, the world coming together blah blah blah blah blah. Bullshit!!!
If you want to drink the coolaide on this then more fool you, I’m not buying so don’t even bother trying to sell.
But to play my part in a little way, I’ve come up with the following recipe, which shows just what I think of the games, and tofu.
So here it is.
Campbell’s Veganish Olympics Style Tofu Salad
In a salad bowl, combine the following.
Organic cherry tomatoes.
Freshly washed spinach lettuce.
Take a non stick frypan and heat to medium temperature on range top. In it place fresh pine nuts, and roast quickly. Don’t let them burn.
Once cooked remove from frypan to container and let cool. Once cool sprinkle over the salad., and also add so e cracked black pepper.
Lightly drizzle some light extra virgin olive oil infused with brown vinegar.
Once completed set the salad aside.
Take your fresh tofu and thinly slice. Then place in cooking basket and put in deep fryer. Cook till crispy. (I can’t stress enough just how important is the sort cooking oil you use in the deep fryer. I find the best results for this are achieved, by using a combination of beef dripping and duck fat. But just one, or the will suffice. But, using a bit of each, will ensure a golden brown colour, and will ensure your tofu actually tastes like something, instead of just tasteless bland white shit.)
Once crisp put the tofu in a bowl and use them as a dipping chip entree. Any dip is good, but can I suggest a mix of sour cream and sweet chilli. Or perhaps cream cheese for a healthy heart option.
Set the tofu aside and return to the salad. Add to the ingredients some finely sliced, and barbecued wagyu beef, which has been marinated in garlic and black bean sauce.
Top it off with some sweet and pork, cooked in beer batter.
It’s a fresh and unique dining experience you can enjoy all year long, but best served to help you ignore the Olympics. Can I suggest you watch a Dad’s Army marathon screening instead.
Best served with a fresh Moselle from a newly opened cask.
