Mini Caprese

The Drunken Vegetarian
  • Serves: Makes 20 mini salads sticks
  • Preparation: 15
  • Ready: 15

Tasty little salad sticks, inspired by the Italian dish Insalata Caprese.


  • 250 g tofu
  • 250 g cherry tomatoes
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • small bunch basil
  • salt and pepper
  • wooden cocktail sticks


Dice the tofu into little cubes of just under an inch.

Put the olive oil, balsamic vinegar and some salt and pepper in a bowl.

Add the tofu cubes and gently toss the cubes until coated with the marinade. Let the mixture sit for half an hour.

Stick a cherry tomato, basil leaf and a piece of tofu on each cocktail stick. Squeeze them firmly together.

Serve the Mini Capreses on a big plate with an Italian white wine, a Soave would be ideal.
