“This has been a long time favourite for our family, even my 2 yr old and 3 yr old love this. We put the leftovers over nachos with some cheese, tomatoes, green peppers and onions. Oooh yummy!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Crumble the tofu to small bits (this can take a bit of time).
  2. Heat oil in frying pan and add tofu and chili powder (added to taste, I add tons, about 4-5 tbsp).
  3. Cook on medium high heat until tofu is crispy.
  4. Add garlic and onion and cook 5-7 minutes.
  5. Add tomatoes, a dab of ketchup (the more you add the sweeter it will be so omit it if you don't like sweet) and a dab of mustard and a drizzle of extra oil if you like.
  6. Let simmer, bubbling until sauce is thickened and tofu is tasty (about 30 minutes).
  7. I like to give it a lot of time to simmer so it's really tasty.
  8. Serve on whole wheat buns with salad and homemade fries.
  9. Enjoy!
