Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 390 F / 200 C.
  2. To dry the block of tofu: cover the tofu with a kitchen towel or paper towels and put it under a heavy pan, bowl or other heavy object for at least 15 minutes.
  3. Cut fennel into thin pieces and cut radishes into halves.
  4. Place vegetables in a pan and drizzle with olive oil + sprinkle salt & pepper.
  5. Roast in the oven for 25 minutes.
  6. Cut tofu into small cubes and fry in oil (or butter of choice) in a hot pan for about 5 minutes until it's crispy.
  7. Wash kale leaves, dry them and remove the stems. Tear into smaller pieces and massage the leaves with a drop of oil & lemon juice until they're softer.
  8. Blend all chimichurri ingredients except olive oil in a food processor. Add olive oil and mix with a spoon until well combined.
  9. Let roasted radishes and fennel cool down for a few minutes before adding massaged kale leaves & smoked tofu. Toss until all combined.
  10. Add chimichurri sauce on top and leave some on the side too, or brush on top of bread.
  11. Enjoy!
