Vegetable Paella with Tofu

Vegetable Paella with Tofu: Main Image

Quick Facts

Servings: 6
Prep Time: 20 min.
Cook Time: 20 min.
Total: 40 min.
A creative take on a traditional dish, this vegetarian version has a midly spicy edge.


  • 1 Tbs olive oil
  • 1 7-ounce package spicy marinated tofu, finely diced
  • 8 oz cremini mushrooms, sliced (the mushrooms cook down so much that if you're a mushroom fan, you can add up to 10 ounces)
  • 2 large carrots, diced
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen corn kernels
  • 1 14-ounce can chopped or diced tomatoes, drained
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup short-grain brown rice
  • 1/8 tsp saffron, crumbled
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen peas, thawed
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 3 green onions, thinly sliced, for garnish
  • 1/4- 1/2 tsp garlic salt
  • 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
  • Salt and pepper (these are crucial; don't forget them! Add them to taste.)


  • Heat oil in wok or a large pan over medium-high heat. Add tofu when oil is heated through, season with salt. Saute 10 minutes, or until tofu is browned, stirring occasionally. Add mushrooms, and saute 4 to 5 minutes, or until mushrooms release liquid and begin to brown.
  • Meanwhile, if you're using minute brown rice, cook according to package directions. Add in saffron at the same time you add the rice to the boiling water. Stir and cook on low - let sit until all water is absorbed.
  • Back to the tofu/mushroom mixture: Stir in carrots, corn, tomatoes, and garlic, and saute 2-5 minutes more.
  • Stir in rice, and about approximately 1/4-1/2 cup of water (if you're using minute rice). Cover with wok lid, and simmer 10-15 minutes, or until all liquid is absorbed.
  • Add peas on surface (do not stir yet), cover, and allow peas to steam 1 to 2 minutes. Remove wok from heat, and stir in lemon juice and green onions. Season with salt, garlic salt, pepper, and cayenne.
