    Ingredients:

    • 1 block extra-firm tofu, pressed and cut into thin strips
    • 1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
    • 1 yellow bell pepper, thinly sliced
    • 1 green bell pepper, thinly sliced
    • 1 large onion, thinly sliced
    • 3 tablespoons olive oil
    • 3 cloves garlic, minced
    • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
    • 2 teaspoons chili powder
    • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
    • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
    • Salt and pepper to taste
    • 1 lime, juiced
    • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
    • 8 small flour tortillas

    Optional toppings:

    • Salsa
    • Guacamole
    • Sour cream
    • Shredded cheese
    • Sliced jalapeños

    Instructions:

    Prepare Tofu:

    Press the tofu to remove excess water, then cut it into thin strips.

    Marinate Tofu:

    In a bowl, combine olive oil, minced garlic, cumin, chili powder, smoked paprika, dried oregano, salt, and pepper. Add tofu strips to the marinade, ensuring each piece is well-coated. Allow it to marinate for at least 30 minutes, or refrigerate overnight for more flavor.

    Sauté Vegetables:

    Heat a large skillet or griddle over medium-high heat. Add a tablespoon of olive oil and sauté the sliced bell peppers and onions until they are tender and slightly charred.

    Cook Tofu:

    In the same skillet, add the marinated tofu strips. Cook until the tofu is golden brown and has a slightly crispy texture, about 5-7 minutes.

    Combine Ingredients:

    Once the tofu is cooked, add the sautéed vegetables back to the skillet. Toss everything together, ensuring the tofu and vegetables are evenly mixed.

    Add Lime Juice and Cilantro:

    Squeeze fresh lime juice over the mixture and sprinkle chopped cilantro on top. Toss once more to incorporate the flavors.

    Warm Tortillas:

    In a separate pan or directly on the stovetop, warm the flour tortillas until they are pliable.

    Serve:

    Spoon the sizzling tofu and vegetable mixture onto the warm tortillas. Serve with optional toppings such as salsa, guacamole, sour cream, shredded cheese, and sliced jalapeños.

    Enjoy:

    Serve the Sizzling Tofu Fajitas immediately, and enjoy the flavorful combination of seasoned tofu and colorful vegetables in each delicious bite.
