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!
