Highlights & Tips

Tacos in the morning is such a great way to start the day!  Whipping up some tofu tacos is quick and easy.  The best part is you can use what topping you may have around the house like salsa, fresh veggies or lettuce to top these off.  

The best way to season the tofu is with turmeric powder and garlic powder with pepper to taste.

Its a nice touch if you warm up your tortilla shells in the microwave for 10 seconds or over a gas stove to warm up but be careful not to scorch the shell.

Budget Tips

This is a relatively inexpensive meal to make but if you want to save a little money you can make your own tortilla wraps.  Making your own wraps is not too complicated but you do need to invest in a tortilla press in the beginning.  You can purchase your tofu in bulk at a club store and safe a good deal of funds just pay attention to the shelf life on the packaging.  Lastly purchase your turmeric online or in the bulk food section of a grocery store.  This is always better than purchasing the small jars in the spice section of a grocery store.

Step 1

Chop up your onion, tomato and avocado and set aside to top your tacos.

Step 2

 

Take your tofu and dice into bite size cubes and place in a small mixing bowl.  Toss in your turmeric powder, garlic salt and pepper and mix well.  Cook up the tofu over medium heat on a cook top, tossing to heat up all sides for about 5-10 minutes.  Set aside while you are heating up your wraps.

Step 3

Heat up the tortilla wraps in the microwave for 30 seconds or heat over a gas stove top flipping on both sides for 5-10 seconds trying not to burn the shell.  Set aside in a warming shell container or wrap them in foil.

Step 4

Build your tacos by placing a shell on your serving plate.  Add your tofu and top your tacos with your preferred toppings of choice.  You are ready to enjoy!

RECIPE TIPS

You can add any spice or seasoning to your tofu like the traditional taco seasoning or a marinade of your choice if you prefer.  Add a little water to the tofu so the seasoning coats well if your mixture is lumpy.  Tacos are best if you warm up your shells before serving.
