Salsa-Inspired (no fat, no salt) Tofu!
Well folks, I have perfected yet another delicious protein source for my competition dieting as a vegan bikini competitor. It’s no surprise how much I love Mexican food. And well, since I can’t hog out on chips & salsa these days, I can definitely salsa-up the copious amounts of tofu I’m eating. This recipe is free of salt and fat. Just pure muscle-building plant-based protein, baby.
1 350 g package firm or extra-firm organic tofu
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 jalapeno pepper, minced
1 Tbsp. water
2 Tbsp. prepared, low-sodium salsa
Juice of a lime
1 tsp. chili powder
1 tsp. oregano
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Drain tofu and cut into 18 equal-sized cubes. Set aside.
Mix remaining ingredients together in a bowl. Add tofu and toss. Pour mixture into 8-inch casserole dish and spread evenly making sure all pieces are well-coated with sauce. Bake uncovered for 25 minutes on top rack of oven. Remove, stir and sprinkle with fresh ground black pepper. Serve and enjoy!
