Coat the strips of tofu with a bit of olive oil.

Sprinkle the tofu strips with the chopped tarragon, salt and pepper, then dust with flour.

Heat a non-stick skillet over medium heat with one tablespoon of olive oil.

When skillet is hot add the tofu and sauté in one tablespoon of olive oil until well browned and a bit crispy on the outside.

Remove from pan and set aside covered with foil to rest.

Sauté shallots, garlic and mushrooms in remaining butter until lightly browned, then pour in wine and cook over high heat until reduced to only a few tablespoons.
