- 1 tsp olive oil
- 1/4 cup red onion, diced
- 1/2 cup baby bella mushrooms, chopped
- 1/2 red bell pepper, chopped
- 1 (14oz) package Organic Extra Firm Tofu
- 1/4 tsp garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp tumeric
- 1/4 tsp smoked paprika
- 1/4 tsp cumin
- 1/3 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp dried thyme
- 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro, chopped (garnish)
- In a saute pan over medium-high heat, add in oil, onions, mushrooms and bell pepper. Saute for about 5 minutes or until fragrant and tender.
- Prepare the tofu by draining it and patting it with 3-4 paper towels to absorb excess liquid.
- Add tofu block to the pan and using a spoon, break it up into smaller pieces.
- Reduce heat to medium-low and sprinkle garlic powder, tumeric, smoked paprika, cumin, salt and dried thyme over the tofu and stir until well combined.
- Continue stirring for 2-3 minutes more or until the tofu is heated through.
- Serve hot with a garnish of fresh chopped cilantro or parsley.
- Notes: If at all possible, choose organic tofu. Tofu is made from soy beans and buying organic means it will be non-GMO.
