Tofu Pesto Fajitas with Teese
Something a little different tonight -- we have a ton of basil growing out on the deck, but we wanted Mexican food. So we compromised and made a smokey pesto style sauce (basil, garlic, smoked paprika, pepper, olive oil) and made fajitas. The tofu was smoked with applewood, pan-fried and cut into strips, the fried a second time with the pesto. The tofu/pesto and Teese were loaded into the tortillas and finished melting on the griddle. The fajitas were topped with leftover pesto.
So, of course Mexican food and Shish Kabobs? Sure, why not! ;)
They featured a combination of tofu, red onion, red bell pepper, mushroom and kumquats -- marinated in olive oil, tamari and smoked paprika and pepper -- set on the skewers and grilled.
The corn (grilled and coated with lime, smoked paprika, and a little Teese for that Oaxacan street food look) and a side of Mexican rice.
