  1. Add all of the spice mix ingredients into a bowl and stir to combine.

  3. Add the tofu and break it apart with your spoon into a crumble. Stir in the spice mix and black beans. Heat through for another 5 – 10 minutes until hot.

* Wrap tofu in paper towels and set it onto a cutting board. Place something heavy on top of the tofu and let it rest for 10 minutes.  After 10 minutes, wring out the paper towels, rewrap the tofu and flip it over before placing it under something heavy for another 10 minutes.
