Tofu with Tomato-Mushroom Sauce

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/tofu_with_tomato_mushroom_sauce.html

From EatingWell:  February/March 2005, The EatingWell Diabetes Cookbook (2005)

Sauteed tofu makes a simple fresh tomato-and-mushroom sauce hearty and substantial. Serve over polenta or toss with pasta.

4 servings, 3/4 cup each | Active Time: 5 minutes | Total Time: 20 minutes

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Drain and rinse tofu; pat dry. Slice the block crosswise into eight 1/2-inch-thick slabs. Coarsely crumble each slice into smaller, uneven pieces.
  2. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over high heat. Add tofu and cook in a single layer, without stirring, until the pieces begin to turn golden brown on the bottom, about 5 minutes. Then gently stir and continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until all sides are golden brown, 5 to 7 minutes more.
  3. Add tomatoes and mushrooms and cook, stirring, until the vegetables are just cooked, 1 to 2 minutes more. Remove from the heat and stir in pesto and feta.
