Tofu in Purgatory

Tofu in Purgatory


Makes 2 servings. Per Serving:










– 1 tablespoon olive oil (optional)
– 4 large cloves of garlic
– 1 796 ml can diced tomatoes
– Salt & pepper to taste I used 1 teaspoon salt & ½ teaspoon pepper
– 2 teaspoons dried herbs
– 1/2 teaspoon dried chili flakes use less if you prefer less heat
– 1 teaspoon sugar optional but helps to bring out the tomato flavour
– 1 block of unpressed medium tofu cut into rounds (around 350g although this doesn’t have to be exact) see
– Indian Black Salt (Kala Namak) optional



1. Warm the olive oil in a skillet and cook the garlic over medium heat until just starting to turn a little brown. (use a drop of water instead of the oil to keep the recipe oil-free).

2. Add the tomatoes, salt, pepper, chili flakes, herbs and optional sugar.

3. Simmer over a medium heat for 5 minutes then add the tofu rounds.

4. Turn down the heat to medium-low and simmer for 15 minutes until the sauce is thickening up a little and the tofu is soft and heated through.

5. Sprinkle the tofu with a little Indian Black Salt just before serving if you would like an eggy flavour.

6. Serve with toast, crusty bread or baguette to mop up the juice!
