Firm tofu can be mashed and cooked like scrambled eggs. Here, it's infused with onion, tomatoes, toasted cumin and cilantro for a lovely Indian flavor.
Satisfying Vegetarian Recipes
Two 14-ounce packages firm tofu, drained and patted dry
1/4 cup canola oil
1 teaspoon cumin seeds
1 teaspoon mustard seeds
2 jalapeños, seeded and minced
1 large red onion, coarsely chopped
1 green bell pepper, finely chopped
2 medium tomatoes, halved and coarsely chopped
1 cup chopped cilantro
How to Make It
In a medium bowl, mash the tofu with a fork until it is in smallish clumps.
Heat the oil in a very large skillet. Add the cumin and mustard seeds and cook over moderate heat, stirring, until the cumin darkens slightly and is fragrant, about 1 minute. Add the jalapeños and cook for 30 seconds. Add the onion, season with salt and cook, stirring, until beginning to brown, 6 to 7 minutes.
Add the bell pepper and cook until softened, about 2 minutes. Add the tofu, stir once and cook until the liquid is evaporated, about 4 minutes. Fold in the tomatoes and cilantro, season with salt and serve hot.
