Sofritas Recipe

    6 Servings


  • 2 tablespoons Oil
  • 1/4 cup Diced Onion
  • 1/4 cup Diced Red Bell Pepper
  • 1/4 cup Diced Poblano Peppers
  • 1/2 cup Diced Tomatoes
  • 1 tablespoon Tomato Paste
  • 1 14 ounce package Extra Firm Tofu
  • 2 tablespoons Taco Seasoning
  • pinch of Ground Cayenne Pepper, (optional)


  1. Drain the tofu and squeeze out as much extra water as you can. Crumble it with your fingers into a bowl and set it aside. 
  2. Add the oil to a nonstick pan and place the pan over medium heat.
  3. Add the onions, bell pepper and poblano pepper to the pan and let it cook for 1-2 minutes while stirring occasionally.
  4. Add the tomatoes, tomato paste and mix well.
  5. Add the crumbled tofu, taco seasoning and optional cayenne. Salt to taste.
  6. Give the mixture a good stir and spread it out over the pan. Let the tofu cook for at least 10 minutes or at least until it starts to brown and stick a little. You may need to adjust the heat.
  7. Once it gets a little brown, stir it again to flip the tofu crumbles around and cook for another 2-3 minutes.


  • Some taco seasoning mixes come with salt. Take this into account when adding more salt. If your tofu is sticking too much, you may need to add a little more oil.
