Servings
4

Ingredients

  • 4 garlic cloves, pressed or minced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups Marsala wine
  • 1 cake firm tofu (about 16 ounces), cut into 3/4-inch cubes
  • 10 ounces moonlight or cremini mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 14-ounce can of diced tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
  • 1 loaf of crusty bread

Preparation

In a pot on medium heat, cook the garlic in the oil just until it sizzles, then add the bell peppers, oregano, and salt. Cook, stirring often, for 5 minutes. Add the Marsala and the tofu and cook on high heat for 4 minutes to reduce the wine a bit. Add the mushrooms and tomatoes and cook on medium-high heat for 5 minutes. Add the basil and salt and pepper to taste.

Serve with plenty of crusty bread to soak up the flavorful broth.
