Tofu Tacos

Crumbled flavoured tofu… mmmm

This recipe is a complete game changer. Who would have thought you can crumble tofu and get the same texture as ground meat? Yet still have a meat and dairy free dinner. It proves yet again how important flavouring is!

These tacos are super easy to make and are perfect for cooking for large groups! 1 block of tofu surprisingly crumbles into a large amount. The seasoning gives the tofu a lovely kick which is complemented and cooked by the salsa and avocado chunks.

Full of colour and flavour these tacos are juicy and hit the spot!

For the tofu
1 block of firm tofu (I used smoked tofoo for added smoky flavour)
4 tablespoons of salsa
2 tablespoons of soy sauce
1 teaspoon of chilli powder
1 teaspoon of paprika
1/2 teaspoon of cumin
1/2 teaspoon of garlic granules/powder
1/2 teaspoon of Cajun seasoning (optional)
1/4 teaspoon of cayenne pepper

For the rest of the tacos
4 large or 8 small tortilla wraps
Red cabbage
Lime juice
1 avocado
Cherry tomatoes
Coriander to garnish

To make the tofu
1. Preheat oven to 180°C/350°F.
2. In a bowl add your soy sauce, chilli powder, paprika, cumin, Cajun seasoning, cayenne pepper and garlic granules. Coming thoroughly.
3. Next crumble your tofu into tiny pieces and empty in your bowl with the seasoning. Mix well.
4. On a lined baking tray, add your crumbled tofu and spread evenly across the tray.
5. Bake in oven for 20 minutes. Keep an eye on the tofu to ensure it doesn’t burn. Toss and stir the tofu every 5 minutes or so.

To finish
