Metabolic Recipes

Serves 4 Cook Time 25 minutes

Ingredients:
14 oz extra-firm tofu, water-packed
2 tsp extra-virgin olive oil
2 medium tomatoes, coarsely chopped
1 1/2 C (4 oz) sliced mushrooms
2 Tbsp prepared pesto (available in the vegetable section of the grocery store)
2 Tbsp crumbled feta cheese

Directions:

  1. Drain and rinse tofu; pat dry. Slice the block crosswise into eight 1/2-inch-thick slabs. Coarsely crumble each slice into smaller, uneven pieces.
  2. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over high heat. Add tofu and cook in a single layer, without stirring, until the pieces begin to turn golden brown on the bottom, about 5 minutes. Then gently stir and continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until all sides are golden brown, 5 to 7 minutes more.
  3. Add tomatoes and mushrooms and cook, stirring, until the vegetables are just cooked, 1 to 2 minutes more. Remove from the heat and stir in pesto and feta.
