1 tablespoon olive oil

1 medium red onion, diced

3 garlic cloves, minced

2 tablespoons dried oregano


1/2 pound fried tofu

2 carrots diced

1/2 pound green beans, cut into 1-inch pieces

2 medium tomatoes, diced

1 cup vegetable stock

1/2 bunch cilantro, chopped

2 tablespoons chili powder

2 limes thinly sliced

Juice of one lime


  1. In a large pot, heat the oil and saute the onion and garlic. Add the remaining ingredients and simmer until done, about 35 minutes.
  2. TIP:
  4. The acid in the lime "juice cooks" the seafood. The ratio should be at least 3/4 cup lime juice to one pound of raw seafood such as scallops or shrimp. Season with salt, pepper, and your favorite spice, serve over salad.
