Thick in texture and rich in flavour, our Extra Firm tofu readily absorbs the flavours in the sauce.



1 pkg Sunrise Firm Tofu , crumbled
1 onion , roughly chopped
1 large carrot , roughly chopped
2 stalks celery , roughly chopped
4 cloves garlic
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 can tomato paste
1 can large can tomato puree
2 bay leaves
1 Tbsp dried basil
1 Tbsp dried oregano


  1. In a food processor, puree onion, carrots, celery, and garlic into a coarse paste.
  2. In a large pan over medium high heat, coat pan with oil. Add the pureed vegetables and cook until all the juices have evaporated and vegetables have softened, stirring frequently, approximately 10 to 15 minutes.
  3. Add the crumbled tofu and cook for another 10 minutes. Then, add the tomato paste and cook about 2 to 3 minutes. To finish the sauce, add tomato puree and dried herbs and for 5 minutes, constantly stirring.
  4. Serve hot over cooked pasta.
