Tofu Fajitas

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Rita~

Thanks to Dr. Weil for this recipe. For a quick and exciting meal, this healthful version of a popular Mexican dish is hard to beat. The baked tofu neatly replaces beef and, along with olive oil, provides good fat. Nonfat whole-wheat tortillas make very good fajitas. They have none of the hydrogenated fat of conventional white-flour tortillas and give you some fiber.

I had never eaten baked tofu before - it was great in this recipe. I used an 8 ounce package of savory flavored tofu and garnished the tortillas with non-fat plain yogurt, tomatoes, avocados and green onions. This recipe goes together in a snap and was well received by my family!
