Tofu Benin

IMG_0700

The second half of dinner with Benin, a very easy and delicious dish, prevailed principally by the sauce and onions — in fact, known as the red sauce of Benin, and used in Ingame pilé.  As strong a flavor as the green olives have, they offer just a hint of brine, but complement well the slightly sweet, very slightly peanutty and creamy sauce.

Beyond marination, the fu was dehydrated to give it preferred texture, but also helping to concentrate the flavors which — too — were barely discernible.

A very delicious dish, adapted by Vegetarian Times — very much less spicy than typically Beninese, but consequently happily embraced by the crew.
