Rosemary Tofu Toast


When I discovered using fresh herbs on my everyday meals everything changed. A fresh herb, cooked or raw, can change a boring meal into something special.

Here is my special Rosemary Tofu Toast. Everyone I make this for thinks I am nuts when I pull raw tofu out of the fridge. Although I don't eat tofu a lot, every now and then I have to have this meal. Give it a try, and if you really don't like the idea of raw tofu, then use some raw goat cheese, avocado or just plain toast with the rosemary and olive oil.

1 piece of your favorite toast (mine is spelt sourdough)
1 sprig of fresh rosemary
2 tablespoons of EVOO
2 slices of raw (firm) tofu

Warm sauce pan and add olive oil (don't get it too hot).

Finely chop the rosemary and add it to the olive oil, and cook it for just a minute or so (it should sizzle, but don't let it burn).

Pop bread into the toaster.

When the toast is crispy, place about 1 tablespoon of the EVOO rosemary mixture on the toast.

Top with the tofu, and all the remaining EVOO rosemary mixture.

Salt and pepper and then top it off with chili flakes (a must).

Rosemary Tofu Toast & Avocado

After a long day of moving, packing and cleaning I sure don't want to be in the kitchen long, and yet I am starving for something fulfilling, crispy with lots of flavor, protein and good fats.  This is one of my favorite quick meals that satisfies me completely. Here is how simple it is:

Snip some fresh Rosemary from your garden of herbs. I hope you have a little herb garden. Having fresh herbs handy helps to make almost any food come alive.

You will also need some Ezekiel Bread. That is bread that is made with only sprouted grains. In other words, it is flourless. There are many different brands and varieties of grains. Make sure it is Organic.


Rosemary - about 1 tbsp chopped fine

1 piece of toast

2 slices of firm tofu - raw (it is surprisingly good raw when served this way)

2 tbsp olive oil

1/3 of an avocado

sea salt


While the bread is toasting, heat some olive oil is a small sauce pan. Chop the rosemary fine and put in the pan with the olive oil. Let it sizzle and infuse in the oil. Turn off the heat. The idea is not to cook the rosemary/olive oil mixture,  but just to infuse it into the oil. Add a little salt.

Smooth a tablespoon of the rosemary oil on the toast. Pile on the tofu and spread the remaining olive oil mixture on top of the tofu. Place slices of avocado on top, and sprinkle with sea salt. Enjoy!
