Pesto Tofu

pesto tofuThis simple and colorful dish requires minimum of your time and a few kitchen tools.


  • 2 T olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • ½ t salt
  • 1 pound firm or extra-firm tofu, squeezed dry and crumbled or chopped
  • ¼ c pesto
  • 1 medium tomato, diced
  • ¼ c pine nuts or chopped walnuts

Heat the oil over medium-high heat, add the onion and sauté for 2 minutes. Add salt and continue sautéing until the onion just starts to turn translucent.

Add in the tofu and continue cooking for 3-4 minutes. It’s ok if the pan seems quite dry as the tofu will brown a bit. Stir in the pesto, tomato, and nuts and cook until thoroughly heated. Taste and add more salt and/or pesto if needed.

Makes 2-4 servings.
