    “Chipotle” Sofritas

    It’s no secret that I love love love chipotle. It’s just one of those guilty pleasure foods that always hits the spot. Last year, Chipotle introduced Sofritas to their menu, a spicy vegan tofu filling for their burritos or tacos. I really enjoy the hearty the flavor of their Sofritas, but unfortunately, the Chipotle version is really high in sodium: almost 600 mg in a serving.

Ingredients: 1.5 T minced garlic 1 T minced ginger 3 T finely…
