For a quick and exciting meal, this healthful version of a popular Mexican dish is hard to beat. The baked tofu neatly replaces beef and, along with olive oil, provides a healthy twist on fat. Non-fat whole-wheat tortillas work great with this fajita filling. They have none of the hydrogenated fat of conventional white-flour tortillas and provide some fiber. The freshness of the ingredients makes these fajitas both visually appealing and delicious.
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat, then add the onions.
2. Sauté, stirring, until the onions are translucent. Stir in the peppers and mushrooms and sauté until the vegetables begin to soften, about 5 minutes.
3. Add the tofu and stir-fry for 5 minutes more. Season with salt to taste and serve in the tortillas.
4. Top the fajitas with low-fat sour cream, salsa, chopped fresh tomatoes, avocado, scallions, or a combination of these.
