I’m fairly new to the world of pressure cooking. I’ve become a fast fan of my Breville Fast Slow Pro! As a working mama with three meals to get on the table every day, this handy dandy appliance takes prep and cook times down to under 15  minutes. It’s my secret weapon on busy evenings or on nights when I’m working late. This Tofu Salsa Verde can be on the table in minutes!

I love the tangy goodness of tomatillos so salsa verde is one of my favorites. The super firm tofu from Trader Joe’s is perfect for this recipe. If you want things a little soupier, add another 1/2 cup of salsa or don’t drain your beans. 

I like to serve this with tortilla chips to scoop everything out of the bowl. Enjoy!

Tofu Salsa Verde

Ingredients

  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 16-oz super firm tofu (such as Trader Joe's)
  • 1 medium onion diced
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup vegetable broth
  • 1 1/2 cups salsa verde
  • 1 can black beans drained
  • 1 cup frozen corn
  • 1 lime juiced and zested
  • 1 1/2 cups jasmine rice

To serve:

  • avocado sliced
  • lime wedges
  • cilantro chopped

Instructions

  1. Cube the tofu into bite-sized pieces.

  2. Add olive oil, onion, garlic, spices, broth, salsa, beans, corn, rice, lime juice and zest to the pressure cooker.

  3. Cook on high pressure for 5 minutes, then do a quick release of the pressure. It will take about 10-15 minutes to come to pressure, then 5 minutes to cook.

  4. Remove lid and let rest for 5 minutes.

  5. Divide among bowls and top with cilantro, avocado and lime wedges.

This Tofu Salsa Verde is a Mexican inspired green rice bowl featuring tomatillo salsa, black beans and extra firm tofu. Topped with avocado, cilantro and lime wedges, this is delicious comfort food served straight from the slow cooker or instant pot.

Sausage-Kale-Ravioli-Stew-Hero-min-1280x720.png

We all have our favorites and Beyond Meat and Kite Hill are two of my go-to plant-based brands. Beyond Meat is taking the plant-based meat world by storm and with good reason. I’ve used their Beefy Crumble to make tacos and chili, and their Beyond Meat burger to craft my grandmother’s Italian meatballs. Equally, Kite Hill is my cream cheese of choice – not only for schmearing on bagels, but also for my homemade spreads and dips (especially this Caramelized Onion household fave).

In this Vegan Sausage, Kale and Ravioli Stew, Beyond Meat and Kite Hill are a perfect pair. This isn’t the first time I’ve paired this dynamic duo. My Stuffed Ricotta Burger insists on Kite Hill’s ricotta for the filling and the Beyond Meat Burger for the surrounding patty.

In this recipe, Beyond Meat’s tasty sausage is the perfect complement to Kite Hills pasta pillows. I combined the two to make a hearty meal for when you want a bowl of comfort – and this Vegan Sausage, Kale and Ravioli Stew is just that. Easy to make, but full of flavor, you’ll enjoy every last spoonful of this  robust soup.

This hearty Italian stew is pure comfort in a bowl. Featuring the dynamic flavors of artisan products by Beyond Meat and Kite Hill, this plant-based soup bursting with robust flavors.
