A few friends have challenged me to make a dish using tofu. I’ve attempted once…. (key word “attempted”) & well lets just say it was not the tastiest. If I remember correctly I just placed the tofu on a cookie sheet and baked it in the oven… no seasoning…no form of any direction of how I should cook it. I’m sure somebody out there likes it that way, but not these taste buds.
I’ve been wanting to try something new, so I decided to buy tofu, avocados, and greek yogurt. I have a small garden where I picked the fresh jalapeños. I made fresh salsa that has been canned for months! (SO GOOD)
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 20 Minutes
- 1 package (14oz) of Super Firm Tofu (I use NASOYA ORGANIC)
- 2 Tbsp Salsa
- 1 can of black beans (I use Natures Basket Organic Black Beans)
- 1 Avocado
- 1 Roma Tomato
- 2 Jalapeños (cut out the seeds if you want less spice)
- 1/2 red or sweet onion
- 2 cloves of large garlic.
- a pinch of water
- olive oil
- 1 Tbsp Chipotle Seasoning (I use FlavorGod)
- 1/2 tbsp black pepper
- 1/2 tbsp Dry or Fresh chopped Oregano Leaves
- 1/2 Tbsp Chili Powder
- 1/4 tbsp salt
So I typically start my dishes by chopping all my veggies first. Chop onion, jalapeños, and garlic. Add to blender with a pinch of water and the salsa. You can add some seasoning to this if you want. I did not. Pulse a few times and then scrape the sides to get it all back to the bottom, blend a few seconds until runny. You want this runny for your marinade basically for tofu.
Set the mix aside.
Grab a frying pan, add olive oil and tofu. You’re going to set on medium heat. Mash up the tofu as soon as you get it in your pan. I used a whisk, or you can use a potato masher.
Let that brown, and stir frequently. After about 10 minutes, add your can of black beans. Let that cook for 5-7 minutes. Add in your mix (sauce) on top of it all. Simmer on low for 5-7 minutes.
While thats cooking cut and chop up your avocado and Roma tomato (or any tomato you have or like) Add 1/4 onion, 1/2 tbsp black pepper, 1/2 chili powder, and 1 tsp salt and mix together. There is your GUAC<3 !
Top your dish with the guac, salsa, and greek yogurt 🙂 !
