While in Berlin in July, Florian took me to this amazing café where we enjoyed a vegan buffet. The place was Café Morgenrot and it was incredible. Morgenrot to me sounds like morgue + rot. It means dawn.
My favorite was this cold lime & cilantro tofu. Here is the recipe, as best as I could recreate it. And I think it is more a lunch thing, no clue why they served it for breakfast.
Marinated Cilantro Lime Tofu
sliced tofu (1 8 oz package)
1/4 green bell pepper, finely chopped
some red onion, finely chopped (no more than the bell pepper)
lime juice (enough to cover at least one layer of sliced tofu, but remember, the more you put in, the stronger it will be)
a lot of cilantro, finely chopped
red pepper flakes, salt and pepper
Press the tofu to remove excess water
Marinate sliced tofu in this for about an hour
The tofu will have a very strong taste, pour most of the juice out and eat cold with rice.
