Bean and Tofu Pita with Spicy Tomato Sauce


     Hi everyone! Sorry for no posts in a few days. I was ill and unable to cook much or be too active.  But back to the program!

     This lunch was exceptionally tasty and nutritious. The addition of the homemade hot tomato sauce really kicked it up a notch. Hope you enjoy it.

1Can Pinto beans, unsalted
1/2 Onion, diced
1C Kale, chopped
6oz Extra firm tofu, cubed
2T Nutritional yeast
3oz Tomato sauce, unsalted
1/4 t Cayenne powder
1/2 t Garlic powder
2 Whole wheat Pita

     In a sauce pot cook the first 3 ingredients with 1/4 C water. Cook until the onion is translucent.  Add the  tofu and yeast and continue cooking for 5 minutes adding water if needed.  Remove from heat and set aside. 
In a small bowl add the tomato sauce, cayenne and garlic. Mix and add water to get a runny consistency.  Toast or microwave the pita to soften them.  Cut in half and stuff the vegetable tofu mix inside.  Drizzle the chili sauce on top and enjoy!

  1. That's the prettiest pita pocket picture :) I don't think I've ever managed to open one without tearing it in 5 different places.
