These Tofu Fajitas with Onions and Peppers are bursting with flavor, texture, and protein, making them the perfect family-friendly meatless meal.
Consider making your own taco seasoning to avoid extra packaging, food miles, and preservatives. It's super easy—let me show you how!
Drain and press your tofu, either with a tofu press or by wrapping it in a clean kitchen towel and stacking something heavy on top for about ten minutes.
Prep your onion by cutting around the bulb and peeling. Prep your peppers by cutting around the stem and removing seeds. Slice your onion and peppers into strips about 1/2 inch wide.
Add onions, peppers, and olive oil to an extra-large pan and fry over medium heat until fragrant and onions are translucent (about 10 minutes).
Cut your tofu into 1/2 inch thick strips. Add the strips to a large mixing bowl with the remaining olive oil and the cornstarch. Toss to coat.
Push the peppers and onions to the edges of the pan. Place the tofu strips into the space on pan, keeping your burner at medium heat.
Allow the tofu, peppers, and onions to cook for 5-8 minutes, flip over and cook for another 5-8 minutes. You will know the tofu is ready to flip when it easily releases from the pan.
Add your seasoning and toss. If your tofu and veggies seem dry, add water, 1 tablespoon at a time, continuing to toss until the tofu, onion, and peppers are coated in seasoning.
Serve hot either with tortillas, over rice, and with whatever toppings your please!
If you cannot get your spatula under your tofu to flip, continue to cook until the tofu releases.
