Tofu Fajita

This is a simple recipe for a tofu fajita filling. You can eat it as is or with some rice (I made mexican rice for this version), or you can serve it with tortillas, sour cream, guacmole, salsa, cheese etc.You can also make this with seitan. In fact, in the version in the picture I used part tofu and part seitan, just because that's what I had on hand.

This is a vegetarianized version of a recipe from Jane Milton's mexican cookbook.

Tofu Fajita

Ingredients (for 4-6 portions): 

- 1 package of extra firm tofu  
- 2 limes or lemons
- 2 tbsp sugar
- 2 tsp dried oregano
- 1/2-1 tsp chili powder (depending how hot you like this)
- 1 tsp cinammon 
- 2 onions 
- 3 peppers (1 green, 1 red, 1 yellow or orange) 
- 3 tbsp vegetable oil 
- To serve tortilla, salsa, guacamole etc. (optional) 


1. Slice the tofu into small strips. In a large bowl combine the juice from the limes/lemons, sugar, oregano, chili powder and cinnamon. Add the tofu into the bowl and mix well. Marinate for 20-30 minutes. 

2. Slice the onion and the peppers into strips. 

3. Heat the oil in a large frying pan. Add the tofu and stir fry until the tofu is beginning to brown. Add the peppers and onions and stir for another 3-4 minutes. The vegetables should be fairly soft. 

4.Serve with rice, or on tortillas with toppings.
