I got this recipe from Vegetarian times, but they got it from Moosewood.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a pot on medium heat, cook the garlic in the oil just until it sizzles, then add the bell peppers, oregano, and salt.
  2. Cook, stirring often, for 5 minutes. Add the Marsala and the tofu and cook on high heat for 4 minutes to reduce the wine a bit.
  3. Add the mushrooms and tomatoes and cook on medium-high heat for 5 minutes.
  4. Add the basil and salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Serve with plenty of crusty bread to soak up the flavorful broth.

Definitely give this recipe a chance -- it was excellent with these two minor changes: 1) Decrease the wine to 1/2 cup, and 2) add a tablespoon or so of tamari for a delicious, mellow, savoury flavour. The mushrooms add a lot of water in the cooking process, and the stew indeed is quite bland with the seasonings listed.

I was disappointed with this recipe. It tasted more like basil soup than it did Marsala. Next time, I would use half as much wine (unless your aim is to get drunk) and add more spices, as it tasted very bland. I would also add flour or tomato paste to help thicken up the "sauce"/broth.
