This Cajun Tofu Pasta Vegan Bowl is easy to fix, family friendly and easy to devour! Well, this recipe is definitely a shout out to all the pasta lovers. It is loaded with fiber rich veggies, good carbohydrates in the form of whole grain pasta and protein rich tofu. What else can I ask for in a bowl?
In a mixing bowl combine all the spices for tofu and mix with a spoon.
Heat a nonstick pan and grease it with a cooking spray.
Rub each piece of tofu with the spice mixes well and place them on the greased pan. Lightly grease with the cooking spray again on the tofu pieces. Cover and cook until lightly crispy. Then, with the help of tongs flip the tofu pieces to the other side and cook again until slightly crispy. Take the tofu out of the pan and keep them aside.
In the same pan combine all the ingredients of pasta (no oil needed). Toss them for 1-2 minutes and turn off the flame.
In another nonstick pan heat 1 tbsp olive oil. Now, add garlic and oregano to the oil. Toss in all the veggies (except) steamed broccoli. Season the veggies with salt and black pepper and cook until the onions are soft and translucent. (Do not overcook and let the bell pepper be crunchy).
Now, take a bowl and spoon pasta on one side and fill the second half of the bowl with the sauteed veggies. Then place steamed broccoli on one side of the veggies and Cajun tofu on the other side of the bowl on top of pasta.
Enjoy it immediately!
