Amazing Oregano and Olive Fried Tofu
1 lb firm tofu
1 cup pitted olives [optional]
3 large cloves garlic [or to taste]
1 cup plain tomato [NOT spagetti] sauce
1 tablespoon nutritional yeast
oregano [see below]
olive or canola oil for frying
Cube the tofu and begin frying it over a medium burner in a large [non-stick] pan. While the tofu is cooking, you can mince the garlic and pit the olives if they have pits. It is best if you can fry each side of the cubes of tofu until they are golden brown but you may not have the patience. Add oregano throughout the whole cooking process, and don't be stingy, LOTS of oregano is what makes the recipe.
Continue rotating the cubes of tofu as to cook them evenly. When they are fairly close to done, add the garlic and olives. Before the garlic starts to burn, add the tomato sauce and stir. If you want it to be thick don't add too much sauce - a cup should be about right though. You may want to add the yeast gradualy as not to over do it.
Make sure everything is mixed well and hot and your done! Its exelent served as a burrito filling with fresh lettuce, on vegan bread or by itself. Enjoy :-)
