Ingredients

  • 10 ounces firm tofu (275 g)
  • 1/2 cup white wine (125 ml)
  • 2 tbsp sweet paprika
  • 1 tbsp tamari or soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Instructions

  1. Chop the tofu and use a fork to crumble it into bite-sized pieces.
  2. Heat some water or oil in a skillet and cook the tofu over medium-high heat for about 5 minutes or until it starts to golden brown. Stir occasionally.
  3. Add the rest of the ingredients, stir and cook over medium-high heat for another 5 to 10 minutes or until tofu is ready. Feel free to omit the wine, but the cooking time may vary a little bit (tofu will be ready sooner). Chorizo will be tastier if you add the wine though.
  4. Serve immediately or keep leftovers in a sealed container in the fridge for 4 to 5 days.
