Stella Blues Breakfast

While on the island of Maui, Hawaii, we found a wonderful restaurant called Stella Blues Cafe. This recipe was inspired by the mouth-watering breakfast we enjoyed there one morning. If you are ever in the area, be sure to include a Stella Blues meal in your plans.


  • 1 lb Firm tofu, cubed
  • 1/2 Green pepper, chopped
  • 1/2 Red pepper, chopped
  • 1 tsp Garlic powder
  • 1 tsp Stone-ground mustard
  • 1 tsp Ground coriander
  • 1 tsp Tarragon leaf
  • 1 tbsp Tahini
  • 1/2 Onion, chopped
  • 1 Tomato, chopped
  • 1/4 cup Water
  • 2 tbsp Olive oil


  1. Saute onion in olive oil until it starts to become translucent.
  2. Put tahini, water, and mustard in a small jar. Shake until tahini dissolves (hold the jar up to check the size of the chunks that drift to the bottom).
  3. Add tahini mix, tofu, and spices to the onion. Cook for a few minutes to release flavors and reduce the liquid somewhat.
  4. Add red and green pepper to the mixture. Cook until pepper starts to become tender. Stir in tomato just before serving.


  • When selecting tofu for this dish, go for the extra-firm, fresh-packed variety. They are usually sold in a sealed plastic tub with water surrounding the block of tofu. Our favorite brands are Small Planet® and Island Spring®, but we’ve used other brands that worked fine too. Silken tofu of any
    kind does not maintain its cubed shape very well when stirred with other ingredients.
