One Big Tofu Burrito

Happy Hump Day everyone! Two more days and its the weekend! I can’t wait. Josh is home from Connecticut which means I get to see him this weekend! I’ve really missed him.

This week is the week before finals at school. Lots of projects and papers are due and I had a big test today so I wanted to get an extra protein packed breakfast. Old fashioned oats + a scoop of almond butter + a handful of walnuts had me awake and alert all morning.

There’s always something to see in my school’s parking lot. Today it was a camo covered truck. Stay classy, PCT.

After economics I headed to Starbucks to study for my consumer behavior class. I got a grande white chocolate mocha with skim milk and no whip. It was the perfect studying fuel. The test went great and I found out we got a 98% on our group paper I have been stressing out about for a while. It was such a relief.

I came home after the test with an appetite. My lunch was Starbucks and a Larabar so I wanted to pack in some nutrients and have a real dinner tonight. I decided to make a tofu burrito!

While the tofu was pressing and the wild rice was cooking I sauteed half a yellow pepper and half a tomato with paprika, onion powder, red pepper flakes, and garlic powder.

When the peppers started to brown I added in half a pack of cubed tofu. I cooked until the tofu had soaked up all the flavoring.

I got out my tortilla wrap and laid down the rice, then the tofu and veggies, then guacamole, then topped with shredded cheddar cheese.

I rolled it all up and put it back on the stove to lightly brown on each side.

This was one huge burrito.

That was absolutely delicious! I need to make these more often!

Time for me to get back to working on some school projects. I am so excited for winter break!

Something to watch:


Did you guys watch the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show last night? I look forward to it every year for the cute outfits and awesome music. I especially loved this clip of the Aquatic Angels because I’ve always wanted to be Ariel from The Little Mermaid. ;p

    What exactly do you do to your tofu when you use it? I’ve never used tofu before but this looks SO good.

    Do you think a green pepper would taste good? Not a fan of yellow pepper.

      It was delicious! Normally I marinade tofu for a few hours in a sauce before cooking it but when doing a stir fry I cook it plain. It soaks up the other flavors in the pan (the tomatoes, garlic, onion, paprika, and peppers) so it doesn’t really need any. Just make sure to press your tofu before cooking. Here’s a post I did about how to press it. http://girlgoneveggie.com/?p=397

      I’m pretty new to tofu too! Once you get the hang of it its super easy! I hope you enjoy it! And I think green peppers would definitely work! Its all just personal preference of if you like a more strong pepper or a sweeter one.
