Broccoli, radish, clover and alfalfa sprouts

This sauce from North Africa Is Rich and spicy. Although it is traditionally served with fish I serve it as a relish for baked tofu or as a sauce to top a wrap. Don’t feel obligated to use cilantro or to stick to the recipe exactly. Warning!!! This is spicy and should be used sparingly. 

Baked tofu made easy….

1 block of extra firm tofu frozen then thawed

1 tablespoon olive oil

If you didn’t freeze and thaw the tofu wrap it in paper towels and place between plates to squeeze out the excess water.
