Vegan ‘Cheese And Onion’
It took me a while to get the hang of making caramelised onion without oil. I find the trick is to sauté finely sliced onion in diluted soy sauce then I finish with balsamic vinegar. When you add onions cooked in this way to hummus and fermented tofu (Taifun Feto) you get something akin to cheese and onion. Great in a sandwich or on toast!
Free from: oil
Gluten, wheat free: use suitable bread
Nut free: use suitable plant milk
This is a vegan recipe
- 1 tin chickpeas (drained)
- 1 tbsp tahini paste
- 1 tbsp lemon juice
- 4 tbsp unsweetened plant milk (I use cashew milk)
- garlic granules and salt (to taste)
- 2 small red onions (finely sliced)
- 1 tsp soy sauce
- balsamic vinegar (to taste)
- fermented tofu (Taifun Feto)
Blitz all the hummus ingredients in a food processor. Season to taste.
Add the soy sauce, a splash of water and onion to a non stick pan. Cook on low with the lid on the pan. Stir from time to time and add a splash of water every time the onions start to stick.
After about 15 minutes the onion should be cooked. Add a splash of balsamic vinegar.
Spread 2 slices of bread thickly with hummus then fill with the onion and fermented tofu.
