There are really no words to describe this dish to you. Amazing? Delightful? Best thing I've ever tasted? All of the above.

I don't know why, but after a long day of work, this spicy tofu taco really hit the spot, making me excited for leftovers the next day for lunch. Any anyone who knows me, knows I hate leftovers!

Check out the recipe below to make it yourself.

  • 1/2 package of firm tofu cut into chunks
  • 1/2 serrano pepper (more or less depending on your spice preference)
  • 1 medium shallot, minced
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 tsp paprika
  • 1/4 tsp cumin
  • red cabbage, thinly sliced
  • 1 tbsp rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp honey

  4. Meanwhile, add your red cabbage, vinegars, honey, lime juice and zest, and seasonings to a bowl and mix to create your salad.
  5. Take a separate bowl, and mix your mashed avocado with garlic powder (add more or less how you want your guac to taste), lime juice, salt and pepper.
