Tofu Stroganoff recipe

Preparation Time: 10 minutes | Cooking Time: 20 minutes
This may sound unusual, but this simple meal is a delicious use of tofu - it's creamy, rich and very nutricious. Serve over noodles or rice depending on your tastes.


  • 675g extra-firm tofu, drained
  • 2 onions
  • 250g mushrooms
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 2 tbsp. soy sauce
  • 350g cottage cheese, blended if you prefer a smooth consistency
  • 2 tbsp. sour cream
  • 1 sprig fresh dill, finely chopped
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Oil to fry


  1. Dice the tofu. Finely slice the onions and mushrooms. Mince the garlic cloves.

  2. Heat a little oil in a frying pan. Fry the tofu for 5 minutes on each side until lightly browned. Remove the tofu and set to one side. Add the onions and cook until golden and tender, then add the mushrooms, garlic and soy sauce and cook until softened.

  3. Mix cottage cheese, sour cream and dill in a bowl. Add to the pan along with the tofu. Cook until just heated through and serve immediately.

Some paprika would spice this dish up just a little bit. Feel free to add dried herbs and spices that you have in your cupboard. Recipe serves 4.
