IMG_0950

What better way to celebrate Tuesday’s than with taco’s!!! Made these delicious tacos last night that were a huge hit! Also to go with the Mexican theme, I made cilantro lime rice on the side! The rice can go in the taco’s or on the side, however you prefer. Hope you enjoy!!

Ingredients (makes 6 small tacos):

Taco Seasoning:

  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano

  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper

Filling:

  • 1 block tofu, cubed
  • 1/2 red pepper
  • 1/4 cup red onion
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1 cup vegan cheese
  • Salsa
  • 1/2 cup basmati rice
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 6 small corn tortillas

Directions:

  1. Boil rice in 1 cup water and a pinch of salt. Simmer until ready. When ready, add cilantro and lime juice and keep covered until serving time.
  2. Prepare seasoning by combining all ingredients and setting to the side.
  3. Chop red pepper and red onion into long thin slices. Sautee these in a medium sized skillet over 1 tbsp olive oil with a sprinkle of the seasoning mixture until they become tender. Place in bowl and cover with aluminium foil.
  4. In same pan, add rest of olive oil and cook tofu with the seasoning mixture stirring often. Cover with lid until brown.
  5. While tofu is cooking, warm the tortillas in microwave, oven, or in a pan until slightly warmed. Do not let them get crispy. Chop avocado into same size slices as the vegetables.
  6. Once tofu is finished, prepare taco’s by assembling tofy, cheese, sauteed veggies, avocado, and salsa. Either add rice onto the taco’s, or have it as a side dish.
