Chipotle Copycat Sofritas! Plant-based and oil-free!
OMGoooood. That’s what this dish is. Flavor on top of flavor and it’s easy to make! Have you tried Chipotle’s Vegan Sofritas yet? Well, not to be a snob, but mine are better! 🙂
Mountain Man and I did an actual taste comparison… we took a Chipotle sample home and, side-by-side, let our taste buds have a party. No, we didn’t get the blindfolds out! Here’s the result: Chipotle’s were, of course, WAY TOO SALTY in comparison. The texture was different, maybe better… I’m not sure how they get their tofu to be chewy but that was nice. Mine is a lot softer. I also left my tofu a bit more chunky than theirs, which is supposedly “shredded” but, really, it’s just mashed up. Another difference is that I used red bell peppers in addition to green and that added a perfect touch of sweetness to compliment the heat. Overall, the flavor is very similar (if you can get past all the salt of Chipotle’s) but mine definitely tasted fresher and lighter (no oil!) and I really like the color of mine better, too. So there you have it. An honest to goodness taste testing with no bias involved (well, maybe a little).
I didn’t get fancy and roll my sofritas in a burrito or even make a taco. I just warmed up some corn chips and piled it on top, added some nacho sauce and—shut the cantina door! A Mexican dish to die LIVE for. You gotta try this!
