Beets, Beet Greens and Tofu

beetgrtofu.jpg (690437 bytes)Ingredients

2 bunches Beets with Greens, fresh
1 Onion, sweet, large
1 pound Tofu, firm or extra firm
1-1/2 tsp. Allspice, ground
1 tsp. Cinnamon, ground
1/3 cup Apple Juice
2 tbsp. Corn Starch


Remove the greens (leaves and stems) from the beet roots.  Set the beet roots aside and thoroughly wash the greens.  Cut into bite-size pieces and place in a covered glass microwaveable, or oven-safe baking dish, or in a wok.  Clean some or all of the beet roots (we like to save some of them to eat raw in our salads) and cut into slices or small chunks and add to the greens. Add the allspice and cinnamon and mix thoroughly.  Peel and dice the onions and place on top.  Cook in the microwave oven on "high" or in a preheated oven at 350 degrees F, or stir fry in a wok with a little water or apple juice. 

While the beets and onions are cooking, remove the tofu block from its container (discard the liquid) and cut the tofu into small cubes. 

When the onions start to become translucent, add the tofu and continue cooking until the ingredients are tender but still chewy. 

Premix the apple juice and corn starch and add to the hot ingredients (if you are cooking in an oven, remove first).  Mix thoroughly until the liquid is all absorbed into a transparent creamy sauce.  If it becomes too thick, add a little more apple juice.  If the cornstarch does not "gel" completely, heat again until it does, stirring frequently.  When the sauce is thickened, the beets, beet greens and tofu are ready to serve.


The above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31):  'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.  And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so.   God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV)  Let no animal suffer or die that we may live! (d-3)
