Cook in one pot this Fall Tofu Skillet is the perfect dinner
In need of a vegetarian fall dish that is full of fall season spirit and is super delicious? This recipe is perfect if you are looking to experiment with something different from their usual fall routine. This Fall Tofu Skillet. is a simple but yummy dish jampacked with flavors. From the Tofu to the apples, the Dijon mustard, and the thyme. It's a dish that'll make your taste buds explode!
There are so many highlights of this dish. But I'd have to say that everything all depends on the apples. The apples you use in this recipe will determine the overall flavor. For example, green apples will add a tartness to your dish and don't incorporate into the recipe as well as a red apple would.
I chose Mackintosh apples as they are sweet but also being slightly crispy, which is perfect for this dish as they will get cooked on the skillet. You don't want it getting soft/mushy and falling apart like red-delicious apple typically does.
Tofu itself has a very earthy flavor that is hard to describe other than being bland. I love the versatility and how it absorbs the aroma of thyme and onion. I chose to use the extra firm tofu, which has a crispier texture when it gets cooked and is perfect for holding its shape.
