- 1/3 to 1/2 lb firm tofu
- 1/2 to 1 tablespoon chopped garlic (to taste)
- 1 capful olive oil (or an adequate amount of oil/butter spray)
- 6 med. mushrooms
- 1 tomato
- 1 small grated carrot (provides texture and a bit of sweetness)
- Onion if desired
- Chili Powder
- 1-2 slices “veggie cheese” made from soy with NO animal products!
Begin by placing garlic and small amount oil in medium saucepan on low to medium heat. Next dice tofu to desired thickness (I chop 1/4 a block for myself, and 1/3 to 1/2 for two) and add to garlic. Let the tofu soak up the flavor while you chop up the mushrooms, tomato, and onion (optional) , and grate the carrot-I often use a couple baby carrots because of exceptional sweetness! Add veggies to tofu in pan and let cook for a few minutes. At this point you can add chili powder as desired, I usually put in enough to give it a fairly red color. A small amount of soy or rice milk can be added to change consistancy, but not too much or it will be too liquidy. The last step is to add in 1-2 slices of a soy cheese (optional) to give it a creamy, cheesey flavor without any of the animal products!
Enjoy! This has become a morning standard for me!
