Tofu Chili

This was a pretty good recipe. I still don't love tofu but this was definitely better than anything else I've tried. I cubed the tofu instead of crumbling it but crumbling is better.

1/2 (12 ounce) package extra firm tofu
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 clove garlic, minced
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1/2 cup onion, chopped
2 stalks celery, chopped
1 (15.25 ounce) can black beans, undrained
1 (14.5 ounce) can stewed tomatoes,
1 quart water
In a medium bowl, crumble the tofu and toss with the chili powder and garlic.
Heat the oil in a large saucepan over medium heat, and saute the onion and celery until tender. Stir in the tofu mixture. Continue cooking about 5 minutes over low heat.
Mix in the beans and stewed tomatoes. Add water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer about 50 minutes.
