Cashew and Tofu Cutlets

Cutlets with brown rice and stir fried pea pods
This afternoon I had a cookbook laying out on the kitchen table.  To no avail I could not figure out what to make for dinner, but then along came my oldest son, Thomas, who took one look at a recipe for peanut and tofu cutlets and said, "That looks good for dinner tonight."  Well, we didn't have any peanuts so I replaced them in the recipe with cashews and to my surprise they were rather well liked by my whole family.







Here is what you need to make this recipe:
  • 1 onion
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 2 cups raw peanuts/cashews
  • 12 - 13 oz package of extra firm tofu
  • 2 cups cooked brown rice
  • 2 Tablespoons Braggs amino acids
  • Butter for frying

Start by cooking diced onion and garlic in butter until soft. 


Then put the raw nuts under the broiler for 2 to 3 minutes until they get brown.


In a food processor mix the onion saute, roasted nuts, and the rest of the above ingredients, minus the butter.  Process until a paste is formed.



Make patties out of the paste and melt butter in frying pan.  


Fry patties in butter until crisp, flip and fry other side.  Keep in the oven until all the patties are cooked.



Makes 12 patties.
