Sauced Up Tofu

Best Blog Tips

A lot of vegans don't like tofu because they don't like how it tastes. But tofu is just a sponge for flavor! You can make it taste like anything you want!
This is a very easy way of preparing it that will teach you its potential. It is a protein-rich, easy side dish that you can serve with just about anything from rice to baked yams, to potatoes!

1/2 block tofu
3 Tbsp. tomato sauce
Salt to taste
3/4 cup water
1/4 cup of green and red Bell peppers, chopped
1 Tbsp. sweet paprika powder
1/2 tsp. italian Seasoning
2 Tbsp. olive oil
1 tsp. onion powder or a small onion, sliced
1/2 tsp. garlic powder or 1 clove garlic mashed

Put all ingredients in a skillet and cook for about 10 minutes or until you have a nice sauce and the tofu has absorbed the seasonings.

Sounds like a great use of tofu =) I didn't like tofu at first, but have learned how to season it.
Thanks for sharing this at Healthy Vegan Fridays. I have pinned this recipe to our Pinterest board.

Thank you so much, +Kimmy the Vegan. Tofu is very bland if you don't season it well. but when you treat it like a white canvas on which you can play with flavors and seasonings, it can become quite tasty!
