Sofritas Tofu:

  • 1 15 ounce block extra firm tofu
  • 1 large green bell pepper seeded and diced
  • 1 medium onion diced
  • 1 jalapeno seeded and diced
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/2 cup tomato salsa
  • 1/4 cup tomato paste
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon coconut sugar or maple syrup

Spanish Rice:

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 small onion finely chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 cups long-grain white or brown rice
  • 1/4 cup tomato paste
  • 1 can diced tomatoes and green chiles
  • 2 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon salt


  • 2/3 cup black beans + 2/3 cup whole kernal corn warmed
  • 1 can refried beans warmed
  • 2 cups iceberg or mixed greens lettuce shredded

Optional Toppings:

  • tomato salsa
  • guacamole


Spanish Rice:

  1. Combine onion and garlic in a large skillet with about 1/4 cup water and saute over medium high heat for 3 to 4 minutes until softened and browned. Pour in remaining ingredients, reduce heat to low, and cover. Simmer, stirring occasionally, for 25 to 35 minutes until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed. If the liquid is absorbed before the rice is tender add a bit of water to the pan.

Sofritas Tofu:

  1. In a non-stick skillet, fry the tofu slices for about 2-3 minutes until browned. (If you want you can add oil but I find if I use a good pan it's not necessary). Remove from pan and place in a separate dish to cool for a moment.
  2. Add the peppers, onion, garlic, and jalapeno pepper to the pan and saute with a bit of water until softened (again, oil is optional). Chop the tofu slices into small bits and add to the pan along with the salsa, tomato paste, 1/2 cup water, and seasonings. Add a bit more water as needed until the mixture is evenly mixed. Simmer for about 10 minutes until fully heated through and the liquid is absorbed.


  1. Fill your bowls with desired amounts of sofritas, rice, bean/corn mixture, refried beans, lettuce, salsa, and guacamole. Enjoy!
