    Tofu With Tomato-Mushroom Sauce

    Sauteed tofu makes a simple fresh tomato-and-mushroom sauce hearty and substantial. Serve over polenta or toss with pasta.


    • 14 ounces extra-firm tofu, preferably water-packed
    • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
    • 2 medium tomatoes, coarsely chopped (about 1 1/2 cups)
    • 1 1/2 cups sliced mushrooms, (4 ounces)
    • 2 tablespoons prepared pesto
    • 2 tablespoons crumbled feta cheese


    Step 1
    Drain and rinse tofu; pat dry. Slice the block crosswise into eight 1/2-inch-thick slabs. Coarsely crumble each slice into smaller, uneven pieces.
    Step 2
    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.
    Step 3
    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.
