Cuban Black Beans and Rice with Caribbean Tofu


The addition of SoyBoy Caribbean Tofu turns this vegan recipe for black beans and rice into a hearty, satisfying meal.

Servings: 4


  1. Add a little splash of vegetable oil to the pan on medium to medium-high heat and saute the diced onion and pepper to soften, stirring regularly.
  2. Once the vegetables have softened, add the garlic and ground cumin and cook that along for a minute. Then add the tomato sauce, rice, black beans and vegetable broth and bring it up to a simmer, stirring it a couple of times.
  3. Once it comes to a simmer, adjust the heat so it stays at a nice gentle simmer with the lid on top. The rice will take about 20 minutes to cook and it’s a good idea to gently stir it occasionally.
  4. While you’re keeping your eye on that, cut the Caribbean tofu into ½” cubes.
  5. After the rice has been cooking about 15 minutes, fold in the cubed tofu and let it continue to cook along until the rice is done.
  6. Season to taste and serve with optional chopped fresh cilantro and a squeeze of fresh lime juice.
