We've all got one: a vegetarian friend or family member that makes cooking for a group just a little bit more difficult. But help is at hand, because Sarah Wasserman, development chef a Mildred's – one of London's most well-established vegetarian restaurants – has created delicious recipe that wouldn't look out of place at the centre of the festive table.
This recipe is a little labour intensive but several stages (the glaze, tofu and stuffing) can be prepared in advance. Besides – the holidays are all about that little bit of extra effort.
The first stage is to hang 2 blocks of tofu for 12 hours minimum. Crush the tofu with your hands and hang in cheesecloth, or alternatively a very fine mesh sieve or clean tea towel. Set a plate and a can of something heavy-ish on top.
