Prep
Cook
Serves 4people
Ingredients
1
(14 oz) package extra-firm tofu, drained
1/4
cup whole wheat flour
1/4
cup nutritional yeast
2
tsp onion powder
1/2
tsp garlic powder
1/4
tsp turmeric
2
tbsp Bragg Liquid Aminos
8
corn tortillas, warmed
salsa
toppings of choice: onions, cilantro, greens, potatoes, avocado, etc
Directions
1.
Drain tofu and place the block on a plate. Cover with another plate and weight the top with a food can or other object of about 1 pound. Let stand 20 to 30 minutes to extract excess liquid. Pour off liquid. Crumble tofu and place it in a bowl. Sprinkle with flour, yeast, onion powder, garlic powder and turmeric and toss. Sprinkle with liquid aminos and toss again. Heat a large cast-iron skillet or nonstick pan over medium heat until hot. Add tofu mixture and cook, stirring and scraping the bottom of the pan frequently with a spatula to prevent sticking, until tofu is browned and crisp in places. Serve with the warmed tortillas, salsa and toppings of choice and let diners assemble their own tacos.
