I love finger food, it is always easy to display in a plate or convenient to take in a picnic! I have decided to try an experiment : stuffing Swiss chard with a filling, made of tofu and some typically Italian items . It has only been a few months that I am enjoying eating tofu! With an appropriate seasoning, tofu can be really super yummy! As it is summer now, I thought that some sun-dried tomatoes and basil would be tasty…
The result came out really yummy, nice-looking and quite quick to prepare!
ingredients for two servings (about 8 pieces):
4 big (or 8 small ) Swiss chard leaves
250gr of fresh soft (silk) tofu
10-15 sun-dried tomatoes, finely diced
2 tablespoons of chopped fresh basil
1 teaspoon of rice flour or maizena
salt and pepper
Blanch the Swiss chard leaves 2-3 minutes in salted boiling water.
Drain the leaves and put them flat on a clean kitchen towel or a paper.
Mash the tofu with a fork and add all the ingredients.
Place a full teaspoon of this mixture in the middle of each leaf and fold it
Put them in a steamer for 10-15 minutes.
Serve with rice or as sandwich filling.
