Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner…and then some

In the kitchen at Di's House

Meatless Monday – Tofu Fajitas

on November 4, 2013

I was feeling tired today because of the time change.  Yesterday it didn’t bother me but today I had a headache from eating an hour later than usual, in addition to doing some paperwork.  I didn’t want to spend a lot of time in the kitchen.  I didn’t want leftovers either, so I made tofu fajitas, along with some roasted peppers from the CSA.  I put the peppers (Anaheim) under the broiler until the skin got puffy.

Then I put them in a bowl and covered it with a silicon bowl cover (Coverflex), to steam the skin.  I ended up with about a tablespoon of chopped peppers.

For the tofu, I cut it into strips and weighed it down between two plates, to get rid of some of the moisture.  Then I sprinkled them with some fajita seasoning and Penzey’s Arizona Dreaming spice blend, and sauteed them in a pan on the stove.  I also sauteed some peppers and onions.

Everything got put into a burrito, on a Ezekiel sprouted grain tortilla, along with some rice, refried beans, salsa, cheese, and lettuce.  I took the photo before adding the salsa and lettuce, so the other ingredients would be more visible.  It tasted “healthy” in a good way.  I like tofu, but skeptics might like it too because there are so many other ingredients.  Plus, the peppers were HOT!  Sour cream would be good, to cool down the heat.
