Meat-Free Mondays – Tofu Fajitas

Posted on March 25, 2008 by Allie


This morning we talked about cast iron pans. Cast iron pans just so happen to be the perfect cookware for making fajitas. And meat-free fajitas just so happen to be easier and tastier than you’d ever think they could be.

Whole Foods has a great recipe for Tofu Fajitas.

My notes on the recipe:

  • I like to use a mix of peppers, not just red and green.
  • To press the moisture out of the tofu, I wrap the tofu brick in a towel and press it between two plates, weighting the top plate (I usually use the honey jar) to speed the process.

  1. Looks like a great recipe, and I really like cooking in my ancient cast iron pan. One note about the recipe, really just common sense, heating the oven to warm tortillas is a silly waste of energy. Flip them in the pan a time or two after turning out the peppers and tofu.

  2. Oh! Roger, I’m so glad you mentioned that! I heat my tortillas in the pan exactly as you suggested!

Tip of the Day

If It Doesn’t Smell, Don’t Wash It


According to Real Simple, if every American made an effort to launder less — cutting out just one load of laundry a week per household — we’d save enough water to fill seven million swimming pools each year.

So if it looks clean, and it smells clean, call it clean and wear it again. Consider hanging worn clothes out on your clothesline to freshen them up between wearings.
