Tofu with Spanish Rice and Beans

This dish came about after I was researching recipes that used smoke paprika. This double protein dish (tofu + beans) packs a fun punch of flavor with smoked paprika as the seasoning. Tofu with Spanish Rice and Beans is a family favorite at our house! We adapted this recipe from here.

    I have never tried tofu or smoked paprika so you are introducing me to a whole new realm of foods!

    yum! Do you ever cook with silken tofu? I love the texture, but find that it’s hard to work with and falls apart too easily.

      Hi Amber! I have done desserts with silken tofu! Yes, it is hard to work with. I use it in smoothies every once in a while but I just learned how to make vegan chocolate “moose” with it. :) I’ll have to share that recipe soon!
