Tangy Tofu Pasta

It's pink!  It's pasta!  It's tangy tofu pasta!!!  :D

It’s pasta and it’s pink! What could be better? I’ll be the first to admit that I was worried this wouldn’t work. (Take a look at the ingredient list, and you can get worried too!) Somehow though, in the back of my head, something was telling me that yes, that was a good, workable combination, and it would taste great. And it did :D There’s a succession of flavours that works really nicely, I thought :) Tomato, followed by tangy lemon, then semi-sweet coconut milk. Mmm!


  • 10 lumaconi
  • 125g silken tofu
  • juice of a medium-sized lemon
  • juice of a small lime
  • half a medium-sized onion (about 60g)
  • 1 garlic clove, grated
  • 100ml light coconut milk
  • 200g can of tomato pulp
  • 2 tbsp soy besciamella
  • 1/4 tsp oil
  • 1 tsp dried basil
  • ground white pepper


I’ve used lumaconi as the pasta to stuff, but if you can’t find any, any other stuffing pasta will work – large shells, cannelloni, etc.

The first thing to do is juice the lemon and lime, and pour the juice into a bowl. Cut the silken tofu into small cubes or narrow strips, and place it into the juice. Put it in the fridge and leave it to marinade for two to three hours.

Preheat your oven to 180°C. Place a pan of salted water over a high heat, this is for the pasta. Once it boils, add the lumaconi, and boil them for 10 minutes. Refresh them under cold water immediately after their cooking time.

Chop the onion into small squares. Grate the garlic clove. Put the oil in a frying pan over medium heat, and add the onion. Sauté for 2 minutes, making sure the onion doesn’t brown (if it does, reduce the heat), then add the garlic, and sauté for a further 30 seconds. Throw in the coconut milk, season generously with ground white pepper, and bring it to a simmer. Reduce the heat slightly, and leave it to reduce for 5 minutes. Turn off the heat, and leave it to cool down.

Get your tofu/juice marinade out of the fridge, and pour out half of the liquid. Using a fork, mash up the tofu. If it is still rather liquidy after mashing it up, tip some more liquid out of the bowl.

Once the onion and coconut milk mix has cooled, mix it in with the mashed tofu. Taste it and if you’d like, add more ground white pepper.

Place the tomato pulp into a pan, and add the basil. As soon as it starts to boil, turn off the heat. Add the soy besciamella, and stir it in to give a nice pink colour. Turn off the heat, and cover the pan.

Prepare an oven-proof dish. Use a spoon to fill the lumaconi, then arrange them in the dish. It doesn’t matter if they don’t sit upright, laying them on their side won’t make the filling fall out. Pour the tomato and besciamella sauce over the pasta, and place the dish in the oven. Bake for 15 minutes.

Gently place the pasta onto a plate, drizzling over any remaining sauce.

This serves one, with about 580 calories in a serving.

    The very crux of your writing while appearing reasonable at first, did not really work very well with me personally after some time. Somewhere throughout the paragraphs you managed to make me a believer but only for a short while. I nevertheless have a problem with your jumps in logic and one might do well to fill in those gaps. In the event you actually can accomplish that, I could undoubtedly be amazed.
