85g/3oz pitted black olives
3 cloves garlic, roughly chopped
1 large spring onion (scallion), roughly chopped
17g/6oz firm tofu, grated or mashed with fork
2 red chillies, finely chopped (or to taste)
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
salt and pepper
30 – 55g/1-2 oz fresh breadcrumbs
a little beaten egg
flour for dredging
oil for frying
Whizz the olives, garlic and spring onion (scallion) in food processor until olives are minced. Tip this into a bowl, add the tofu, chillies, seasoning and enough breadcrumbs and beaten egg to bind the mixture. At this stage you can chill in fridge so that the sausages can better hold their shape, but you can also go ahead with shaping into 8 sausages and carefully roll them in some flour. Fry them in a little oil, turning regularly till browned all over.
Serve with just about anything! Mashed potato and green vegetable is good.
