Three Pepper Tofu Sauce


Just looking for different flavors and textures. 

This sauce is basically just an amalgam of interesting ingredients that I had available to me. I figured let's see what happens. 

It's as tasty as it is beautiful. Pretty easy to make too. 

If I've learned nothing else from the insane amount of cooking shows that I watch, it's that a good sauce or puree ties everything together and finishes the dish. 

Try this one the next time you're looking for something new. 

Sauce Ingredients
1/2 package silken firm tofu
1 poblano, chunked
1 jalapeno, chunked
1 serrano, chunked
6 cloves garlic
1 tbl spicy mustard
2 1/2 tsps salt
1/2 tsp cayenne
1 tbl olive oil
Water

In a medium sauce pot bring to a simmer the peppers and garlic in the water and then allow to continue at a simmer for 10 minutes. Use enough water to cover the ingredients by 1 inch. 

Add remaining ingredient to your food processor. 

When the pepper mixture is done simmering use a slotted spoon to add the peppers and garlic to the food processor. Also add 1/4 cup of the cooking water. 

Puree until smooth.

You can skip the simmering process to save time, but your puree will not come out as smooth.
