Jerk Tofu Jamaican Style

What’s Tofu?  According to Wikipedia:

“Tofu (Chinese豆腐 dòufuJapanese豆腐 or とうふ tōfuKorean두부 dubu), also called bean curd, is a food made by coagulating soy milk and then pressing the resulting curds into soft white blocks. It is a component in many East Asian and Southeast Asian cuisines.[3][4] There are many different varieties of tofu, including fresh tofu and tofu that has been processed in some way. Tofu has a subtle flavor and can be used in savory and sweet dishes.”

Roti Jamaican Style

Growing up in Jamaica, Roti was not a common household name!  Nor do I remember eating it at all to be honest! Roti is a Caribbean/Indian Recipe.  Roti is a flat, round bread cooked on a griddle.  Some Roti recipes incorporate dal puri (chickpea/Lentil).  Roti is usually served on the side or wrapped with a meat of your choice (preferably curry dishes) or veggies.

This sweet, flat, moist bread can tantalize any taste bud!  I’m addicted to this tasty treat myself!  We try not to cook it much at home because of it’s addicting properties, flavors!  “Call me the Roti monster!”  Words of MekaDayz Hamil, Roti Specialist!

Here at 11Hauz we specialize in making our own Roti!  We would love to share this amazing recipe with you but  cant!  What we can say is, we will be catering in Park City, at Park Silly Sunday Market and L’Oakley Grown Community Market in Utah and this will be on our signature menu or you can google an awesome Roti Recipe!   If you’d like a taste, contact us 🙂

As a child, I looked forward to Sunday breakfast or dinner each week.  My reason, Fried Sweet Plantains! We were served 1 or 2 slices for breakfast or dinner! Although 1 or 2 never satisfied our starving palettes!  Receiving 1 was prized beyond many other Belly Full servings.

In our family, plantains are cut in an oval shape:
