When we think of serving snacks/appetizers to our guests the first thing that comes to our mind is store bought chips and dips. Though we may not be very happy at heart to serve that but we all are always falling short of time and ideas as well. I tend to do the same many a times and so I came up with the idea of Tofu Spinach Stuffed Crispy Cups. It’s as crispy as chips and as delicious as dips and so easy to cook that you will bring lots of love and laughter into your home.
I love making tortillas at home because it’s healthy and I am aware of the ingredients I use and trust me it’s very easy as well. But to make it even simpler I decided to bake the tortillas in a muffin tray so that no babysitting is required. Now isn’t that fun?
For this I just had to knead some dough in my dough maker by using whole wheat flour, some oil to moist it and make it crunchy and flaky, salt for taste and water for binding. That’s all. Cool! Ah!
Rolled the tortilla about my palm size and shaped it in a greased muffin tray and pushed it in the oven. Baked it for 10-15 minutes.
While my tortilla cups were getting crispy I quickly sautéed it’s stuffing. For this I greased a nonstick frying pan and added crumbled tofu, chopped spinach, and flavored with oregano herbs, spiced it with crushed peppers and salt to taste.
By the time my tortillas were baked its stuffing was also ready. See, now you know, what I mean by saving time while cooking? Stuffing and tortilla cups ready in just 15 minutes. Hahaha! 🙂
Now take the tray out of the oven but don’t turn off the oven, spoon the stuffing equally into the cups while in the muffin tray, top it with lots and lots of mozzarella cheese (Well I love cheese so I like the idea of lot and lots of cheese but you can add cheese according to your taste). Put the tray again in the oven for cheese to melt. Serve hot and delicious snacks to your guest in less than 30 minutes and enjoy all the compliments for this flavorful and healthy Tofu Spinach Stuffed Crispy Cups. 🙂
