Super-Quick 'Chickken'-Style Fajitas
2 packages baked tofu - (10 oz ea)
8 flour tortillas - (6" to 8" dia)
4 scallions -- sliced
Prepared salsa or picante sauce
Plain low-fat yogurt or soy yogurt

Cut the tofu crosswise into narrow strips. Place in a covered, heatproof dish and warm in the microwave for 2 to 3 minutes. Warm the tortillas briefly in the microwave until they are soft and pliable; place on a serving plate covered by a cloth napkin or foil.

Arrange the scallions, salsa, and yogurt or sour cream in separate bowls on the table and let everyone assemble their own fajitas as follows: place a few strips of the tofu in the center, sprinkle with some scallion, and top with a dollop each of salsa and yogurt. Roll up and eat!

This recipe yields 4 servings.

Comments: This is an almost-instant meal, highlighting the incredible convenience of baked tofu, a product available in most natural stores. To complete the meal, serve with quick-cooking brown rice and garnish each plate with shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, and black olives.
