This is a plant-based version of gnudi made with tofu. Nutritional yeast is a great substitute for cheese as it has a nutty, cheesy flavour.


  • 1 x 349 g firm tofu carton
  • 2 T Woolworths nutritional yeast
  • 1 T lemon juice
  • ½ t lemon zest
  • 120 g flour
  • For the tomato salad, mix:
  • 2 tomatoes, cut into 8 pieces
  • 350 g Woolworths exotic tomatoes, halved
  • 10 g chives, thinly sliced
  • 12 green olives, chopped
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 1⁄3 cup lemon juice
  • 12 capers, roughly chopped
  • salt, to taste
  • Woolworths plant-powered dairy-free Cheddar-flavoured cheese, grated, for serving

Cooking Instructions

1. Blend the tofu until creamy. Place in a bowl and stir in the remaining ingredients.

2. Bring a large saucepan of water to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Drop in tablespoons of mixture and cook for 1 minute only (don’t make them too small as they will overcook). Drain.

3. Divide the salad between 4 bowls and top with the gnudi and grated cheese.

Cook's note: If you don't follow a plant-based diet, grilled lamb chops are the perfect accompaniment here.
