Recipe of Red Onion and Goat Cheese Tofuttata


500gSilken Tofu (or use medium tofu for a firmer texture)
1/2 cupCoconut Milk
1/2 tspTurmeric
2 tbspCornstarch
1/2 tspSea Salt and Fresh Ground Black Pepper
1 mediumRed Onion, sliced
1/2 cupGoat Cheese (or vegan cheese), crumbled
2 tbspBalsamic Vinegar
1 tbspOlive Oil
3 sprigsFresh Thyme


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 F.
  2. In a sauté pan over medium heat, add oil. Add sliced onions and cooked for two minutes. Add balsamic vinegar and thyme, cook another two minutes until most of the vinegar has reduced.
  3. In a blender combine the tofuttata ingredients until smooth.
  4. If you are using a non-stick pan, pour directly into the pan with the onions. Or you can line a pie pan with parchment paper and bake in that.
  5. Top with goat cheese (or vegan cheese). Bake for about 30 to 40 minutes until the center has firmed up and golden brown.


  • When your appetite is low, try eating whatever you want, whenever you want. Eat breakfast foods at supper time if that is appealing. For example, have cereal and milk or scrambled eggs. You can even try our rendition of a frittata made with tofu for an alternative to eggs. 
  • Tofu is made from soy, which is a heart healthy food and can add protein to your diet. For breast cancer survivors, having about 2 servings of minimally processed soy products a day is safe to consume. A serving can include 125 mL (½ cup) of edamame (cooked soybeans), 60 mL (1/4 cup) of soy nuts, 175 mL (¾ cup) of tofu or 250 mL (1 cup) of soymilk. 
  • Recent studies now show that women who have had estrogen-sensitive breast cancers do not need to avoid soy. It's important to talk to your doctor if eating soy foods is right for you.
