IN THE KITCHEN: CRISPY TOFU TACOS

I have been on a fresh taco kick lately. This one in particular is a favorite of mine. All fresh ingredient with a great mix of textures. I think the reason why I love tacos is because they are so easy to change up, use just black beans, shrimp, fish its so versatile. This recipe is all eyeballed because I made only 3. It is pretty easy to determine how much more you need if making more than 3.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 avocado, cut into small pieces

  • 2 tomatoes, cut into small pieces

  • Onion, diced I eyeballed the amount

  • Cilantro, eyeballed the amount, chopped and some for garnish

  • Fresh lime juice you can use half or the entire lime

  • Dash of olive oil, salt, pepper and hot sauce (I love cholula)

  • Extra firm tofu half a cube, pat dry and cut into cubes

  • 1-2 tbs of coconut oil, depending on how much tofu you are using

  • Tortillas

Combine the first 6 ingredients into a medium bowl mix and set aside. In a saucepan add the coconut oil and let it get hot. Once oil is hot add the tofu and sprinkle with salt. Cook until the sides are lightly brown about 10 minutes. Once tofu is brown, put them on a paper towel and remove any excess oil. Combine the tofu in the salsa bowl to coat the tofu. Add the mixture on top of the tortillas, add some cilantro and enjoy!
