Ingredients

  • Olive oil
  • Onion
  • Firm tofu
  • Mushrooms
  • Cherry tomatoes
  • Pasta
  • Water
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Garlic salt
  • Nutritional yeast

Directions

Cook your pasta according to package instructions, making sure to salt the water generously. We recommend tube or bow tie-shaped pasta. Chop up your veggies and tofu into bite-sized pieces. Heat olive oil over medium heat, adding the onions when the oil is shimmering and cooking until they are translucent and fragrant.

Add the tofu, cooking for an additional 10 minutes. Then you can add the chopped mushrooms, cooking for 5-10 more minutes. Season with salt, pepper, and garlic salt to taste.

Remove the mixture from the heat. Add cherry tomatoes and drained pasta and mix to combine. Add a splash of olive oil, mixing to thoroughly coat everything. Serve sprinkled with nutritional yeast.
