Tofu recipes – fruity tofu balls

As children, we totally enjoyed eating cottage cheese balls. Our moms always prepared them for us with seasonal fruits, a generous sprinkling of powdered sugar, and lightly roasted bread crumbs.  We couldn’t get enough of them. We’ve played with the original recipe a bit and transformed it so that it can also be prepared for those who must exclude lactose from their diets.  We’ve included sweet tofu balls with apricot sauce and fried breadcrumbs in our tofu recipes collection.

What you need: Directions:
  • 2 packages natural tofu
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 1 egg
  • 150-200 g semolina
  • 60 g crystal sugar
  • A handfull of breadcrumbs (you can also use nuts or cocoa)
  • About 10 apricots and 2-3 spoons crystal sugar (depending on the sourness of the apricots)
  • Powdered sugar for sprinkling
  1. Finely grate the tofu.  Add salt, 150 g semolina, sugar, and an egg.  Mix with a spoon thoroughly until the dough is no longer sticky.  If the dough doesn’t hold together, gradually add a bit more semolina.
  2. With wet hands, form one ball from the dough about the size of a ping-pong ball.
  3. Boil lightly-salted water in a medium-sized pot.  When the water begins to boil, place this ball in and let it cook for a moment.
  4. If the ball doesn’t fall apart, then it is the correct amount of semolina and the rest of the balls can be boiled.  If the first ball falls apart, add a bit more semolina to the dough (given that the size of the egg varies, it happens, even while following the recipe, that the consistency of the dough is off, that’s why it is best to test the dough with one ball, before cooking all of them).
  5. Cook the balls about 2-3 minutes, then take them out of the water and allow them to drain.
  6. Puree the apricots, mix in sugar and cook briefly (just until the sugar dissolves, which takes a couple of minutes).
  7. In a dry pan, roast the bread crumbs (careful not to let them burn).
  8. Serve the balls on the apricot “sauce”, sprinkle with pan-roasted bread crumbs and powdered sugar.

Tofu balls with fruit taste the best when freshly cooked, served warm.  If you enjoy trying new tofu recipes, certainly you won’t want to miss today’s.
