I guarantee you will not miss the chicken or cheese when you eat these vegan tofu fajitas. Serve with Spanish rice and beans for a delicious meal. I got this recipe from Whole Foods Market and made a few modifications. The key to this recipe is the marinating, so be sure to let the tofu and vegetables marinate for at least 20 to 30 minutes.

  • Dry tofu by pressing firmly with paper towels. Cut into strips and place in a wide dish.

  • Mix lime juice, cumin, liquid amino acid, and cayenne pepper together in a small bowl. Pour 1/2 of the mixture over the tofu; toss gently. Cover and let marinate in the refrigerator, 20 minutes to overnight.

  • Combine remaining lime juice mixture, red onion, green bell pepper, red bell pepper, and jalapeno in a large bowl. Toss well. Cover and let marinate in the refrigerator, 20 minutes to overnight.

  • Spray a large non-stick skillet with cooking spray and place over high heat. Cook and stir tofu until browned on all sides, 8 to 10 minutes. Transfer to a plate.

  • Spray the skillet with cooking spray again and place back over high heat. Add onion-pepper mixture; cook and stir until browned, 8 to 10 minutes. Return tofu to the skillet.

  • Warm tortillas and top with tofu mixture, avocado, tomato, and cilantro.

Cook's Note:

Substitute corn tortillas for the whole wheat tortillas if desired.
