  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1-1/2 tsp cumin powder

Cut the tofu into ½ inch slices and blot dry on a clean tea towel.  In a large bowl, mash the tofu with a potato masher.

Heat oil in a large skillet and sauté onion, garlic, cumin, chili powder, oregano and black pepper, until onion is soft.  Add the tomato sauce, jalapeno pepper, and tofu and cook until heated through, about 5 minutes.

Assemble burritos with the tofu mixture, lettuce and tomatoes. Serve with salsa, and enjoy!
