"Waiter, There is Too Much Pepper on My Vegan Paprikash!"

“But I would be proud to partake in your pecan pieeeeee.”

“When Harry Met Sally”is one of my all time favorite movies. I was telling my son about this scene one day when we were visting the Temple of Dendur at the Met. And I since I spent the day making pecan pie, I thought it would be fun to make paprikash too, which is just a sauce made with onions and paprika.

serves 2 to 3

1/2 box extra firm tofu
1 onion
1/2 cup vegetable broth
1/2 cup oat milk
1 tablespoon oat flour (or other flour)
Grapeseed oil
Fusilli noodles (I used quinoa fusilli)
Fresh parsley

Press the tofu.

Slice the onions into semi-circles. Heat oil in a skillet, add the onions, and stir around to coat. Add a few dashes of paprika (like 3 shakes) and a dash of salt and cook down until getting brownish and soft, maybe 10 minutes. It will look like they are burning but that is because of the paprika. Just use a wooden spoon and stir around every so often.

Sprinkle the onions with flour and whisk in oat milk and stock. On medium heat, bring it up to a boil and then reduce to a simmer until the sauce is thick.

Cut tofu into chunks. Toss into the sauce and heat through. Cook up fusilli noodles.

Add the noodles to the sauce and mix well. Garnish with fresh parsley. Enjoy!
