A few weeks ago I was emailed by the folks at Barhyte Specialty Foods asking me whether I would like to be involved in a recipe contest called Skinny Mama using their line of Saucy Mama gourmet mustards. I do not know how they knew but one of my favorite condiments is mustard and even better just plain old yellow mustard at that.
I looked at the list of gourmet mustard that the company was going to send me and I immediately signed up. Who doesn't like a challenge? Here is the list:
- Tarragon Lemon
- Smoky Garlic
- Champagne and Honey
- Suzie's Yellow mustard
Once I knew I had to start creating recipes, the ideas started flowing. What should I make first? Since I was back to eating tofu, I thought I would try my hand at making a faux fish stick using pressed tofu.
I decided to press it overnight and then I decided to slice it up and marinate it with a little oil and the Smoky Garlic Mustard.
Then I let it marinate for half a day and then I prepared the seasoned breadcrumbs and dipped the tofu strips and placed them on a baking sheet.
I baked them, flipping them at a half way point and cooked them until lightly browned and crunchy.
I would use more smoky garlic mustard for dipping sauce or you can make a big green salad to go with it like I did. I will be sharing a unique oil-free dressing tomorrow!
