Jerk Tofu with Caribbean Rice and Peas

 Jerk Tofu with Caribbean Rice and Peas
This is the ultimate party food. The flavors here are a perfect combination: Warming Caribbean spices in the tofu, mellowed by a cooling sweetness of coconut and thyme in the rice, finally set off by a tangy twist of coleslaw. Shooooot!!! Serve this at a barbecue or dinner party, and the meat eaters will ask how tofu can taste so good. The secret: Use extra firm tofu for it’s steak-like texture, then marinate it overnight to give it a punch of flavor. 

My husband Toby is not a fan of tofu. If I’m being completely honest, it’s taken a bit of time for him to get into the whole “Vegetarian Thing.” I’ve endured years of this cat and mouse routine: I hand him a plate, he then says, “Hey, what ‘s this (erm, a beautiful plate of food)? Tofu huh?? Oh…ohhhh, that’s goooood. No really! What’s in the rice? Mmmm, I like it. Nic, this coleslaw is killer. Have you put it on the blog (yes, in June)? Is there enough for dinner later?” Lordy.

Jerk Tofu

1 pack extra firm Tofu  or Tofu Steaks

Jerk Sauce 
2 scotch bonnet peppers
1 bunch of scallions (green onions) 
3 cloves of garlic
3 tablespoons allspice
1/4 cup dark muscovado sugar or brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
2 tbl shoyu sauce
juice of one juicy lime

1. Blend all the jerk sauce ingredients in a food processor and give it a whizz for 2-3 minutes. Slice the tofu in half lengthwise (they should look like rectangles). Place the slices into a flat dish and pour on the jerk sauce. Baste both sides with a pastry brush. Cover with cling film and marinade in the fridge overnight.
2. Using a grill pan, heat on medium until it’s lightly smoking. Place the tofu slices on the pan and grill for 3 minutes, or until dark brown grill marks appear. Flip and grill on the opposite side. Place on a plate and set aside. 

Carribean Rice and Peas

2 cups basmati rice
2 tbl olive oil
1/2 an onion chopped
2 cloves garlic minced
1 cup black beans
2 3/4 cup vegetable stock
3/4 cup coconut milk 
1 tsp dry thyme
1 tsp sea salt
pinch of freshly ground black pepper

1. Rinse the rice until it runs clear. Drain and set aside.
2. In a pan, heat the olive oil and fry the onion, garlic, and thyme until soft. Add the rice, and fry, stirring until it turns white, about 1-2 minutes. 
3. Add the vegetable stock, coconut milk, black beans, and salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to low. Cover and simmer for 15-20 minutes, or until the rice is fully cooked. Fluff with a fork and serve.
