Tofu and Spinach Cannelloni

Tofu and Spinach Cannelloni


  • Preheat oven to 180* C (350* F) Fan.

For the tomato sauce

  • Place a deep pan or pot over medium to low heat.
  • Add the olive oil and onions. Sauté for about 4 minutes, until the onions soften.
  • Add the garlic and sauté for 30 seconds.
  • Add the canned tomatoes, salt and pepper.
  • Lower heat, cover with lid and cook for 10 minutes, until the sauce thickens. (Don’t let the sauce dry out too much because the moisture is needed to cook the pasta when it is added.)

For the filling

  • In a food processor, beat the tofu for 1-2 minutes, until it becomes creamy.
  • Place a separate pan over medium to low heat.
  • Add the olive oil and the garlic.
  • Sauté for ½ a minute and add the pine nuts and spinach.
  • Sauté until the liquid released from the spinach is absorbed.
  • Add the mint, basil, nutmeg and beaten tofu.
  • Gently stir, remove from heat and set aside to cool.

For the cannelloni

  • In a 20x30 cm ovenproof baking dish, add half of the tomato sauce.
  • Fill each cannelloni with the filling and place them one next to the other over the tomato sauce in the baking dish.
  • Pour the remaining tomato sauce over the cannelloni.
  • Bake for 30 minutes.
  • In a food processor, beat the slices of bread, 1 clove of garlic, pine nuts and thyme.
  • Spread the mixture over the cannelloni and drizzle with some olive oil.
  • Continue baking for another 10 minutes, until golden.
