Tofu-Bisquick Pies

Day 13 BM #51 - 

I have friends who call me to ask for some after school healthy snack ideas for the kids. When I talk about Tofu, the main complaint from them is that their kids don't like the bland taste of Tofu. So for them, here is a spicy way to serve Tofu for kids. 

From my experience, kids typically love stuff when served in the form of muffins. So try out these addictive muffins to please kids and adults alike.

This is an inspired recipe from the Bisquick Box.

Tofu-Bisquick Pies

Ingredients - 
Pancake Mix 1 cup (I used Bisquick brand)
Milk 1/2 cup
Yogurt 1/4 cup
Cheese, shredded as needed (I used Cheddar cheese)
For the Filling - [ Leftover Scrambled Tofu or Scrambled Paneer work well too]
Tofu, Crumbled 1 packet
Onion, chopped 1/2 cup
Ginger-Garlic paste 1 tsp
Salt and spices as needed (I added Tomato Chilli Sauce and Pav Bhaji Masala)
Seasoning (Oil 2 tsp, Cumin Seeds 1/2 tsp)

Tofu-Bisquick Pies

Method Of Preparation -
Prepare the filling - 
In a pan, heat oil and add cumin seeds. After they crackle, saute the onions and ginger-garlic paste.

After the onions are golden brown, add the crumbled Tofu and saute until tofu is cooked through.

Sprinkle salt and other spices and adjust the flavor as needed.

Assembling the pies - 
Whisk the pancake mix, milk and yogurt to a pouring consistency and set aside.

Preheat the oven to 375 °F.

In a greased muffin plate, Pour a tablespoon of the pancake mix in each of the slots. Add a tablespoon of the filling in each of them, sprinkle cheese and top it off with pancake mix again.

Tofu-Bisquick Pies Prep
