This easily cooked dish can become one of your regular favorites too and can be cooked different ways, with oil or without oil (just replace oil with water). I like it better with a little olive oil for that olive flavor. This is good for about 4 people.
🌱 Ingredients :
▪︎ 1 – 500 gms block of tofu, sliced in small rectangles
▪︎ 3 fresh tomatoes, diced or equivalent canned diced tomatoes
▪︎ 3 shallots or 1/2 medium onion, diced
▪︎ 4 garlic cloves, crushed & minced
▪︎ 1 jalapeño, sliced thinly
▪︎ 1 tbsp of EVO oil, may replace with water for oil-free cooking
▪︎ 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
▪︎ salt to taste (i always use whole salt like himalayan salt )
▪︎ 1/2 tbsp tamari sauce or light soy sauce
▪︎ Choose how you would want to cook your tofu. Mine was pre-baked for 20 mins at 425 deg with a minimal salt and no oil. You can air-fry or surface fry. Set aside.
▪︎ Heat up EVO oil in a pan on low medium heat for few mins (don’t burn) then add in & saute in order, with a minute or two gap in between : garlic, shallots or onion, jalapeño & tomatoes til latter is soft.
▪︎ Add in your pre-cooked tofu, salt, lemon juice & tamari or light soy sauce & stir. Cover & simmer for about 5 mins til tofu has absorbed the flavors.
▪︎ Best served with steamed rice. Enjoy!
