A note about serious food allergies

We would make a joke about tofu here, but that would be tasteless. But seriously, imparting flavor on tofu is no mean feat, as many devout plant-based eaters can attest. But when you try this version simmered in fragrant tomato sauce accented with tangy fajita seasoning, you may have visions of what Vegan Heaven looks like. We stuff this sofritas goodness in a burrito along with creamy avocado and corn-red cabbage slaw for a meal that packs a serious protein kick without pulling any punches on flavor.

    1

    Cook Rice and Make Slaw

    Bring a small pot with 1 cup water, ¼ tsp. salt, and rice to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook 17-20 minutes, or until tender and water has been absorbed. While rice cooks, zest lime, halve, and juice. Rinse corn under warm water if still frozen. Combine shredded red cabbage, corn, ¼ tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper in a medium mixing bowl. Cover and refrigerate.

  • Step 2 - Prepare Tofu and Avocado

    Prepare Tofu and Avocado

    Pat tofu dry, then coarsely chop. Halve avocado and remove pit by carefully tapping pit with the blade of your knife so it sticks. Gently twist knife to release pit. Scoop out the flesh with a spoon and into a small mixing bowl. Add 2 tsp. lime juice and mash with a fork until smooth. Cover and set aside.

  • Step 3 - Cook the Sofritas

    Cook the Sofritas

    Heat 2 tsp. olive oil in a medium non-stick pan over medium heat. Add tofu to hot pan and cook 5-7 minutes, stirring occasionally and smashing with back of spoon, until lightly browned and crumbled. Add half the seasoning blend and cook 2-3 minutes, while stirring. Add tomato sauce, bring to a simmer, and cook 3-4 minutes, or until sauce has slightly thickened. Taste, and add remaining seasoning blend if desired. Remove sofritas to a plate and set aside. Wipe pan clean.

  • Step 4 - Assemble the Burrito

    Assemble the Burrito

    Place tortillas on a clean work surface. Place mashed avocado in center of each tortilla. Divide slaw, followed by sofritas between tortillas. Fold sides of tortilla toward center so they nearly touch, then roll bottom edge towards the top, enclosing sides tightly. Lay burrito on its seam. Repeat with remaining tortilla.

  • Step 5 - Seal the Burrito
