Tofu Marinated In Ground Ivy

Subscribe to my newsletter to get updated when new recipes are released.

I found some lovely ground ivy (Glechoma hederacea) today while walking the ‘foul stinking beast’. So I thought I’d try a marinade for tofu. I have to say that I rarely do ‘fried’ foods, but today was different.

Ground Ivy Recipe Ingredients

  • 7g ground ivy (fresh)
  • 2tbsp olive oil
  • 2tbsp sesame oil
  • 1tbsp white wine vinegar
  • 250g dragonfly tofu

Ground Ivy Recipe Instructions

  1. Finely chop the ground ivy, and combine all ingredients in a flat dish.
  2. Slice the tofu into four, and liberally brush the marinade all over it. Leave to stand for 30 minutes, turning the tofu occasionally.
  3. Next put ½ cup of oil in a frying pan on a high heat, when hot fry the tofu slices for 60 seconds either side.
  4. Serve on a bed of fried dulse and serve topped with steamed or sauteed sea purslane leaves.

Serves: 2


My Latest Book is Now Available on Amazon as a Paperback or Kindle

For over fifteen years I have experimented and explored the world of wild plants. Uncovering how our ancestors used plants to nourish and heal themselves.

I’ve spent thousands of hours digging through scientific papers, read hundreds of books. Even gone so far as to be nomadic for over a year. During this time I followed the seasons and plants around the highways and byways of these isles.

I have written this book to help you rediscover our forgotten plant heritage. To learn how to use wild plants as food and medicine. Knowledge that was once common to everyone. Click here to learn more.
