Ingredients

Makes 4 Servings


  • tofu, extra firm (light or low-fat when possible) (14-16 ounces)
  • garlic, minced (1 clove)
  • onion, diced (1/2 cup)
  • green pepper, diced (1/2 cup)
  • red pepper, diced (1/2 cup)
  • mushrooms, chopped (3/4 cup)

  • cumin powder (1 teaspoon)
  • black pepper (3/4 teaspoon)
  • salt (1 teaspoon)

Directions

  1. Add 1/4 cup (60 milliliters) water to large saute pan. Once heated, add diced onion.



  2. When the aroma releases from the onion and it starts to become translucent, add minced garlic. Cook for 2 minutes, add diced peppers and chopped mushrooms and add 1/4 cup (60 milliliters) water if vegetables are sticking to the pan. Cook for about 4 minutes or until vegetables are tender.



  3. Crumble tofu with hands and add to pan along with turmeric, mixing well. Add cumin powder, pepper, and salt, and cook for another 4-6 minutes until everything is cooked through.



  4. Serve with whole-grain toast or on a warm corn tortilla.
