Meatless Mondays – Tofu Tostadas

The Greenists are on vacation.  Please enjoy this recycled post.


This is a great “intro to tofu” recipe. If you’ve tried tofu before and thought it tasted like feet, you’ll be pleasantly surprised. I’ve included the brands I use, in case you’re curious.


  1. Cut the tofu into 1/2 inch cubes. Cook over medium-high heat in 2-3 tablespoons of canola oil until browned slightly.
  2. Add black beans
  3. Mix in taco seasoning and 2/3 cup water. Bring to a boil. Turn heat to low and simmer, uncovered, for 9-10 minutes.
  4. Heat refried beans in the microwave for 1-2 minutes.
  5. Spread refried beans on the tostada shells, then layer tofu & black bean mixture.
  6. Top with lettuce, cheese, tomatoes, etc.

When I made this, my husband and I pigged out on tostadas and still had enough to pig out again at lunch the next day, so I think this should serve four or five people easily. It’s quick and easy and I swear the tofu doesn’t taste at all like feet.

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.
