You can make like chicken curry, and add mealmaker instead of chicken.
One more style is you can cook like the Chinese with soya sauce.

Stuffed Tofu (veggie style)

You can serve this as snack or starter

6 pieces of square tofu (firm)
cucumber, deseeded and julienne
carrot, julienne
turnip, julienne
cup bean sprouts, blanched in salted water.

Deep fry tofus until light golden brown. Set aside to cool down. Cut the square tofu in half diagonally. The cut tofu will have a shape of triangle. Now, using a knife make a deep slit right in the centre, on the long side of the triangle. (do not cut through).

Now, mix all the veggies together and stuff into tofu. Serve it with chilli and tomato sauce.   Or use the following home made chilli sauce

Homemade chilli sauce

6-12 fresh red chillies
5 shallots - sliced
5 garlic sliced
1 cm ginger sliced
1 tbs of vinegar (white) or lime juice
And water
A bit of salt
A bit of sugar

In a blender/processor, grind all the above ingredients together and set aside for the spices to blend together. Taste to your liking, like adding more lemon juice and sugar, if you like.  The consistency of this sauce for tofu should be slightly watery.

The above sauce can go well with any dish, be it roast chicken, steamed fish, vegetables or spring rolls. Just grind massive, store in a jar and refrigerate it. You can eat is as it is. No need to cook.

(Sorry Jenim. Thought of giving you a simple recipe, but made it longer) My apologies in confusing you. Embarrassed

Hi everyone, here's an easy recipe - Vegetarian pasta.

250 grams french beans sliced thinly
1 packet frozen corn kernels
100 grms slivered almonds
3 tbsp pesto (basil sauce)
salt to taste
oilve oil
1 cup grated parmesan cheese

Boil pasta till cooked, drain and add a little olive oil, stir (this will prevent the pasta from sticking together)and leave aside.
Boil water in a pan. Boil the beans for 2 mins (sprinkle a little olive oil in the water - this will retain the fresh green color of the beans). Drain and set aside.
Boil corn kernels and when cooked drain and set aside.

In a pasta bowl, mix the pasta, beans, corn, pesto sauce, salt and peper. Lastly add the almonds and cheese.

This dish can be served hot or cold.

If you cannot get pesto sauce from the supermarket, you can make them yourself. the recipe for pesto sauce:

3 cups fresh basil leaves
1 1/2 cups chopped walnuts
4 cloves garlic, peeled
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 cup olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
