Are you a vegetarian who desires a new idea for a tofu dinner? Citrus Marinated Tofu with Onions and Peppers is the perfect recipe for your tofu craving. I like to serve this meal with warm tortillas or rice.
This recipe has been considered one of my favorites since it is vegetarian, under 450 calories, has 12 grams of protein, is lower in calories than the average meal (260), and the sodium intake is considered a little amount of only 170 mg.
1 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
1 lime juiced
3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
1 teaspoon fajita seasoning
1 pound firm tofu, cut into 8 slices
1 red onion, sliced into rounds
3 bell peppers, sliced
1 teaspoon steak rub seasoning
1 tablespoon honey
1 teaspoon red wine vinegar
Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with foil. In a bowl combine cilantro, lime juice, 1 tablespoon olive oil, and fajita seasoning. Lay the sliced tofu in a single layer in a deep dish and pour the marinade over it. Let sit at room temperature for 10-15 minutes to marinate, turning occasionally. Meanwhile, toss the onions and peppers with the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil and the steak rub. Set aside. Place the tofu in a single layer on one side of the prepared baking sheet (save the marinade.) Spread the vegetables in a single layer opposite tofu. Roast for 20 minutes, or until vegetables are tender and tofu is lightly browned. While vegetables and tofu are in the oven, transfer the leftover marinade to a small blender or food processor. Add the honey and red wine vinegar and blend until combined. Serve with the tofu.
