1/2 lemon, juice
1 lime, juiced
1 garlic clove
1-2 chipotles in adobo sauce, minced
a few tbsp chopped cilantro
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 recipe of PPK Seitan, cooled. I added a little bit of cumin, lime juice, and a drop of adobo sauce added to the wet ingredients
1 pepper, sliced
1 onion, sliced
6 flour tortillas
tomatillo salsa, recipe follows
cilantro-jalapeno Sauce, recipe follows
Slice the seitan into long strips and mix it with the marinade. Set aside.
Fry the pepper and onions with olive oil in a grill pan until brown.
Remove the seitan strips from the marinade and grill them in oil in a grill pan until they start to brown. It might just be me but this part can be painful (must've been the chipotle) so turn on a fan, open a window, and stand back.
Combine everything in a tortilla and stick it on a grill (pan) until it gets those pretty grill marks.
1/2 cup cilantro, chopped
1/2 small jalapeno
1/2 lb silken tofu
1 lime, juiced
1 tbsp oil
1/2 tsp salt
Blend it all together until creamy.
5 tomatillos, halved
1 clove garlic
1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
1 lime, juiced
1/2 chipotle pepper in adobo, chopped
Fry the tomatillos and garlic with olive oil on a grill pan until brown. Remove the garlic clove but save the oil. Chop up the tomatillo and blend it with the rest of the ingredients and the garlicky oil.
1 lb tofu, frozen, thawed*
3 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp peanut butter
1 tsp cumin
3 corn tortillas, cut into strips
oil for frying
1 tbsp olive oil
1/2 onion, chopped
1 clove garlic (I leave it whole and just use it to flavor the oil but you can mince it and leave it in)
1/2 small jalapeño, chopped
4 cups veg broth
14.5 oz can fire roasted tomatoes
avocado, cheese, and cilantro for garnish
Preheat the oven to 350.
Whisk together the soy sauce, peanut butter, and cumin until smooth. Tear the thawed tofu into small bite-size pieces and toss with the peanut butter mixture. Spread out the tofu pieces in 1 layer on an oiled baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes or until crispy. Set aside and try not to snack on them.
Cover the bottom of a frying pan with oil. Fry tortilla strips in a single layer until crispy. Drain on paper towels, set aside and try not to snack on them.
Heat olive oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Cook onion, garlic and jalapeno in oil for a few minutes until soft. Remove garlic if you left it whole. Stir in broth and tomatoes and bring it to a boil. Simmer, covered, for 15 minutes. Take it off the heat and blend with an immersion blender. Add tofu and heat until the tofu is hot again. Garnish with cilantro, avocado, tortilla strips and shredded cheese.
Here it is with my new favorite recipe, Seitan Fajitas.
*To freeze tofu, cut firm (non-silken) tofu into 4 equal squares (or more if you want it to freeze faster) and wrap each square separately in foil. It's best to let it freeze over night but smaller pieces shouldn't take more than a few hours. You know they're ready when they've turned into yellow tofu bricks. To thaw, put bricks into bowls of hot water, replacing the water every few minutes until you get tofu sponges. Squeeze out as much water as possible from the tofu sponges.
