Ingredients

FOR THE TOFU

  • 1 14 oz package of firm tofu *pressed + sliced into 8 strips
  • 2 tbsp olive oil

FOR THE CHIPOTLE SAUCE

  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 1 roma tomato
  • 1 small onion
  • 2-3 chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
  • 2 tbsp adobo sauce
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp coriander
  • 1/2 tsp oregano

TO MAKE THE SOFRITAS

  • 3/4 cup veggie broth
  • 1/2 cup salsa verde *mild or spicy

Instructions

FOR THE TOFU

  • Press your tofu for 30 minutes, simply slice the tofu in half lengthwise, wrap in a clean towel, place on a rack, and place something heavy (like a cast iron skillet) on top.
  • Slice your tofu into 8 equal strips, then add it to a pan over medium heat with olive oil. Fry on each side until the outsides are somewhat crispy. This should take about ten minutes.

FOR THE CHIPOTLE SAUCE

  • In a blender, combine the chipotle peppers, adobo sauce, garlic cloves, roma tomato, onion, and spices. Blend until completely smooth.
  • Add the fried tofu to the blender and pulse a couple of times until it's chopped into small bits. Be careful not to over blend, you can always chop a few larger pieces with the back of a wooden spoon once it's transfered back to the pan, you can't repair over-blended tofu.
