Ingredients

2 tbsp olive oil 30 mL
1 onions, finely chopped 200 g
2 cloves garlic, pressed
1 cup green/snap beans 100 g
2 zucchini, cut into 1,5 cm cubes 260 g
1 aubergines / eggplants, small size, cut into 1,5 cm cubes 180 g
1 yellow or red sweet peppers, cut into 1,5 cm squares 200 g
1 carrots, cut into 1,5 cm cubes 100 g
1 pinch salt [optional] 0.2 g
ground pepper to taste [optional]
300 g firm regular tofu, diced 1 1/2 cup
1 1/4 cup canned tomatoes (diced) 320 g
1 tsp herbes de Provence 1 g
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper [optional] 0.4 g

Method

  1. Mince or press the garlic and chop the onion. Heat the oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Cook the garlic and onion 4-5 min until lightly coloured and soft, paying attention not to let them burn.
  2. Boil or steam the green beans. Drain, cut them into 2 cm pieces, and set aside.
  3. Prepare the remaining vegetables: Dice them into 1,5 cm pieces then add them to the saucepan with the garlic and onion. Season with salt and pepper. Sauté 8-10 min, with some stirring.
  4. Add the tofu cubes, tomatoes, herbes de Provence and Cayenne pepper (optional). Cover and cook over low heat about 10 min, until all vegetables are soft but still a bit al dente. Add the cooked green beans and cook an additional 2-3 min. Adjust the seasoning and serve.

Observations

This dish may be prepared in advance and reheated. It is not advisable to freeze it because tofu changes texture when thawed after being frozen.

This is excellent. My kids are not too fond of tofu but loved this recipe.
