“Tofu in a Blanket” is a creative and delicious twist on the classic pigs in a blanket appetizer, perfect for vegetarian or vegan-friendly gatherings. Instead of using traditional sausage or hot dogs, this recipe features tofu as the star ingredient wrapped in flaky pastry for a tasty and satisfying snack. Here’s how to make Tofu in a Blanket:

Ingredients:

  • 1 block extra-firm tofu, pressed and drained
  • 1 sheet puff pastry, thawed
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce or tamari (for a gluten-free option)
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Sesame seeds or poppy seeds (optional, for topping)
  • Olive oil or cooking spray

Instructions:

  1. Prepare Tofu: Cut the pressed and drained tofu block into strips or rectangles, similar in size to mini hot dogs.
  2. Marinate Tofu: In a shallow dish, mix together Dijon mustard, soy sauce or tamari, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper. Coat each tofu piece in the marinade, ensuring they are well coated. Let marinate for at least 15-20 minutes to allow the flavors to infuse.
  3. Preheat Oven: Preheat your oven according to the puff pastry package instructions.
  4. Prepare Pastry: Roll out the thawed puff pastry sheet on a lightly floured surface. Cut the pastry into strips wide enough to wrap around each tofu piece.
  5. Wrap Tofu: Wrap each marinated tofu piece with a strip of puff pastry, sealing the edges by pressing lightly with your fingers. Place the wrapped tofu on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  6. Optional Topping: Brush the tops of the pastry-wrapped tofu with olive oil or lightly spray with cooking spray. Sprinkle sesame seeds or poppy seeds on top for added flavor and texture.
  7. Bake: Bake in the preheated oven according to the puff pastry package instructions or until the pastry is golden brown and crispy.
  8. Serve: Once baked, remove from the oven and let cool slightly before serving. Tofu in a Blanket can be enjoyed on its own or with dipping sauces such as sweet chili sauce, barbecue sauce, or mustard.

This delightful appetizer or snack offers a flavorful and vegetarian-friendly twist on a classic favorite, making it a hit at parties, gatherings, or simply as a tasty treat for yourself. Adjust the seasoning and dipping sauces to your preference for a personalized culinary experience.
