Sep 15, 2016

This is a delicious recipe from our friends at Hispanic Kitchen! It’s good to have this kind of recipe up your sleeve if you’re hosting vegetarian guests, or if you just want a hearty and tasty meal. These tofu fajitas are so delicious, remember to make extra for your carnivore friends, too! The secret is in the soybean oil, which has a neutral flavor that preserves the recipe’s essence and taste. Soybean oil is versatile, and can be used in a variety of recipes for baking, grilling, marinades, etc.

Best of all, you don’t have to search far and wide to find soybean oil. Most vegetable oil is 100% U.S. Grown soybean oil. To learn more, visit SoyConnection.com/i-am-for-soy.
