Looking to eat a little more plant-based? This recipe is for you. Tofu fajitas are the recipe sweet spot that both my vegan AND meat-lover friends both love. My recipe differs from tradition by using a sheet pan method to decrease hands-on time.  I put a plant-based twist on the traditional fare with these vegan tofu fajitas, and they come together in 30 minutes or less.


– Extra firm tofu – Yellow onion – Red bell pepper – Orange bell pepper – Zucchini – Olive oil – Dairy-free cheese – Salt and pepper – Ground cumin – Smoked paprik – Ground chili – Garlic powder – Corn tortillas – Avocado – Cilantro – Lime

Is tofu gluten-free?

Yes! Plain tofu is gluten free. As tofu is made from soybeans and there is no wheat, rye, oats or barley involved in the production, it is safe to consume if you have a gluten sensitivty or Celiac disease. 

What other toppings are good on tofu fajitas?

Sour cream or Greek yogurt (dairy-free if needed), shredded lettuce, tomatoes, salsa, Pico de Gallo, guacamole.... the list goes on!

Top Tips!

When working with tofu, I highly suggest purchasing extra firm tofu. Firm tofu tends to be much softer and will not hold the same when baked. To create the crispiest tofu, squeeze out as much excess liquid as possible! I recommend using a tofu press. If you don’t have one, you can wrap your tofu block in a clean towel and stack some heavy books or a cast iron pan on top.
