Tofu Fajitas

Prep:

Thanks to Dr. Weil for this recipe. For a quick and exciting meal, this healthful version of a popular Mexican dish is hard to beat. The baked tofu neatly replaces beef and, along with olive oil, provides good fat. Nonfat whole-wheat tortillas make very good fajitas. They have none of the hydrogenated fat of conventional white-flour tortillas and give you some fiber.
