For Ruth: We really like the following dish. It's cool and filling and such
a pretty color.
BEET POTATO SALAD
3 large beets
1 large potato (I use 3 to 4 small potatoes)
1/2 pound firm tofu, cubed (I use 1 pkg. Mori-Nu Lite)
1/2 cup celery, diced
1/2 cup mayonnaise (fatfree)
1 tsp. prepared horseradish (optional)***
1. Steam or boil beets and potatoes until tender.(I do this separately and
use a pressure cooker for the beets).
2. Drain vegetables, peel and cube. Combine with tofu and celery.
3. Dress with mayonnaise and horseradish.
4. Chill before serving.
***I marinate the potatoes and beets with 1 1/2 Tbs.fatfree Italian Dressing
or lemon juice. I also add 1/2 cup diced sweet onions and 1 tsp. no-salt
seasoning (Shillings/McCormick Salt Free Spicy Seasoning). Also find that
1/3 cup of mayonnaise is enough. I have never used the horseradish - leery
of trying it. If anyone does - please let me know the outcome.
This recipe has been adapted from "The Tofu Book" by John Paino and Lisa
Messinger. I also have, from the same book, a recipe for potato salad with
tofu if any one is interested.
