my niece & her hubby are vegetarian, so i planned a 10-course vegetarian dinner for 8pax for her recently. this the very first time i tried serious vegetable dishes, like not just frying a garlic kang kong or something..haha!^^

#6 flamed squid in spinach veloute

one of the dishes was a vegetarian version of flamed squid in spinach veloute.

what i did was replaced the flamed squid with a crispy shallow-fried silken tofu. ^^

i chose silken tofu as i wanted a very soft tofu texture inside while the outside is crispy.

#3 spinach sauce

for the spinach veloute, i used spinach sauce recipe i self-created for the flame squid dish. i used lots of vegetable to make the veloute so very tasty.

i fried in butter 1/2 onion, 1/2 stalk leek, 1 green pepper & a bunch of spinach leafs. then i placed them in a blender & added  2 tablespoon vegetable stock (since this is a vegetarian dish i prepared the vegetable stock beforehand instead of chicken stock) & 2 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil & salt & pepper to taste.

such a wonderful & tasty veloute complementing the shallow-fried silken tofu. 🙂

for the silken tofu, i used one packet of silken tofu & cut into 8 slices of 1cm+ thickness.

then i heat up enough olive oil in a non-stick pan, added the tofu & lowered the fire. i added sea salt from the grinder dispenser liberally & covered the pan. when it was browned, i turned over & cooked till the other side was browned.

when serving i heat up the veloute, plated the sauce, added the crispy silken tofu & topped with a coriander branch. 🙂

tofu is not squid of course, but nice also, & the veloute is marvellous & the whole dish presentation just very charming. 🙂
