What you will need:
2 blocks of Extra Firm Tofu
Lemon or Lemon Juice
1 Sweet pepper(optional)
What I made?
I made an all natural vegan BBQ tofu
How did I make it?
I made it alone and I thought of the flower as I went along.
Where did I make it?
I made it at home
What did I learn?
I leanred how to make a flower decoration using a pepper and scallions. I am very proud of how it turned out:) If I had to do it again, I would maybe add some pepper( spicy) to give it a lil kick:)
Step 2: The Sauce
Using your measuring cup, measure 1 1/2 cup of ketchup and pour into a bowl. Next meausure 1/2 cup of molasess, i used Black strap, and add to the ketchup. Now, squeeze your lemon and you should get 1/4 cup of juice. I used only one lemon, but use how ever many you need. Now mix that all up. Now pour that mixture into your pot and cook for about 2 mins on med heat. Add your salt and sugar to taste( I added mine before I cooked it but it seems to disolve better if you put in when the sauce is warm).
Step 3: Put 2 and 2 Together:)
You are done!
If you want to do the flower:
Take a sweet pepper, and hold it upside down so that the stem is on the bottom. With a pearing knife cut how ever many petals you want. Make sure that you dont cut all the way down or else your petals will break ( I learned this the hard way:/)
Now carefully bend the petals out and down, so that you expose the middle( seeds).
For the leaves I used scallions that my mom had grown. After washing them, lay the scallions down and cut just the top layer. (Im sorry I dont have a pic, but you know that scallions are hollow in the middle and so dont cut it all the way through) You want to be able to open it up so that it is flat. Now that we understand that, take your knife and slice it into little strips on the longest side. They will curl naturally but if the need some encouragement, you can curl them your self.
Now just arrange your flower and leaves however and wherever you want.
