Ingredients

  • 8 oz extra firm tofu drained and pressed
  • 1/2 red onion thinly sliced
  • 1 green bell pepper thinly sliced
  • 1 red bell pepper thinly sliced
  • 1 yellow bell pepper thinly sliced
  • 1/3 cup vegetable stock
  • 2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 2 tsp oregano
  • 2 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp coconut sugar or brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 6 corn tortillas

Toppings

  • 2 tbsp cilantro finely chopped
  • 1 avocado diced

Instructions

  • Heat your large skillet on medium-high heat. Spray with your favorite cooking spray. I used olive oil spray. Place tofu pieces in one layer in the pan. Cook for 5 minutes. Flip and cook for an additional 5 minutes. Remove from pan.
  • Spray pan with cooking spray again. Add the sliced red onion, and all of the spices, including the 1/3 cup of vegetable stock. Stir and cook for about 3 minutes. At this time you can add 2 cloves of garlic minced if you prefer.
  • Add the sliced bell peppers. Lower to medium heat, cover pan, and cook for an additional 5 minutes. If the fajita seasoning seems too dry, add another 1/4 cup of vegetable stock for a more juicy fajita filling.
  • Add the tofu back to the pan, and cook for an additional 2 minutes.
  • Warm tortillas. Wrap tortillas in a wet paper towel with the extra water squeezed out. Be sure the top and bottom is wrapped. Place on a plate and heat in the microwave for 30 seconds. This will make them more pliable for serving.
  • Spoon tofu mixture into warmed tortilla. Top with chopped fresh cilantro, chopped avocado, and any other additional toppings of your choice.

Notes

  • Make sure the pan is already warmed to medium high heat before adding the tofu.
  • Removing the tofu from the pan before adding the vegetables and seasoning allows the tofu to stay crispier.
  • Use a non-stick skillet to avoid the need for added oil.
  • Will keep in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
