1 block extra-firm Tofu, drained and pressed to remove liquid, then crumbled
1 C chopped onion
1 C chopped red sweet pepper (or any color combo!)
1/2 chopped celery
1/2 C chopped mushrooms
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 C Imagine Organic Vegetable Broth
5 tsp Bragg Liquid Aminos (according to taste)
1-2 tsp turmeric
2 tbsp Red Star Nutritional Yeast
Drain tofu and wrap entire block in absorbant tea towel. Place heavy pan or book on top of wrapped tofu to squeeze out remaining water.
While the tofu drains, chop the veggies. Try to chop them uniformly to expedite saute time. Heat a heavy frying pan. I use cast iron because the heat is disbursed evenly and since this is a saute, you'll want to work quickly. Crumble the tofu and set aside while the pan heats.
Add half the veggie broth to the pan and then the onion, peppers, and celery. Saute until just tender. Then add the mushrooms, minced garlic, and crumbled tofu. Stir and add as much of the remaining broth as necessary to keep the tofu from sticking; add the Liquid Aminos, turmeric, and nutritional yeast. Continue to stir everything together. Once the liquid is absorbed you're finished! Serve immediately.
Number of Servings: 5
