Tofu and Okra Gumbo
This Southern-inspired gumbo is full of vegetables (and yes, tofu). Delicious for dinner and perfect for leftovers.
In a large pot, on medium-high heat, sauté the onion and celery (with the celery greens) in 2 tablespoons olive oil until the onions are translucent, about 2 minutes. Add the cubanelle peppers, shishito peppers and garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1-2 minutes. Add the apple cider vinegar and cook down, about 2 minutes. Add the diced tomatoes, broth, water, thyme, oregano, basil, bay leaves and salt and pepper. Reduce heat to medium, cover and simmer for 15-20 minutes.
Meanwhile, sprinkle the tofu with 2 teaspoons olive oil and ground cumin and place on a rimmed sheet pan. Broil until slightly browned on top, then turn the cubes over and brown the other side, about 1 minute per side. Remove and set aside.
in a large sauté pan, sauté the okra in a teaspoon of olive oil until slightly browned, about 2 minutes, and add it to the pot of gumbo. Add the cubed zucchini and cooked tofu into the pot and gently stir. Simmer uncovered until the zucchini is tender, about 2 minutes. Add in the Tabasco (or other hot sauce) if desired and season with salt and pepper.
Remove the bay leaves and serve hot over rice if desired.
