  • 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.

  • 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.

Easy and very tasty! We made this for dinner this evening and were very pleased. It was quick easy and a really nice dinner. We added fresh oregano to give a bit of flavor boost. Next time might add some toasted pignoli too. Made some pasta and sliced some fresh bread for dipping in oil. Pros: quick easy healthy taste great Cons: no herbs to season? Read More

Surprisingly very tasty and easy to make with so few ingredients. I used sun-dried tomatoes and after rehydrating them added the leftover water to the mixture at the end to give it a tad more flavor. Will definitely make again! Read More

Good! I added in 3 garlic cloves and crumbled the tofu. I love tofu but I don't love it in large chunks. I also cooked the tomato/mushrooms a few minutes longer and served it with pasta. I will make this again soon! Pros: Good flavors cheap fast and easy! Cons: None. Read More

I made this tonight and it is really good. I didn't expect it to be that good because I like to marinate tofu so it absorbs the flavor. I cooked the tomato and mushrooms for about 5 minutes even though the recipe says for 1-2. This is really easy and really good. I ate it by itself. Delicious! Read More

I made this dish for the first time I would have never thought tofu could be transformed into something so tasty! A cinch to make especially since I prepared my own pesto. Read More
