Extra virgin olive oil
1/2 (one half) yellow onion, finely diced
1 small carrot, finely diced
1-2 stalks celery, finely diced
1 tablespoon mirin
1 pound extra firm tofu, coarsely crumbled
1/4 teaspoon ground tumeric
1/2 bunch arugula, cut into bite-sized pieces
1/ cup shredded vegan soy or rice mozzarella
2-3 sprigs fresh parsley, finely minced
Place a small amount of oil and onion in a deep skillet and turn heat to medium. When the onions begin to sizzle, add a pinch of salt and sauté for 1-2 minutes. Stir in carrot and celery and cook, stirring, until shiny with oil. Add mirin, crumbled tofu and tumeric and stir well, incorporating tumeric throughout the dish. Cover, reduce heat to low and cook for 3-4 minutes. Stir in arugula and soy cheese, cover and cook for 1 minute. Turn off heat and allow to stand until cheese melts, about 2-3 minutes. Stir well to combine and serve garnished with fresh parsley.
Makes 3-4 servings.
