TOFU TACOS WITH AN ASIAN KICK








I don't know if this is true where you live, but here in Los Angeles, the food truck craze is still in full swing.  We have a small main street in our town and every Friday night, they line up on both sides of the street for about 3 blocks.  It's a lot of fun to go there and hang out with friends, but it's not always easy to find vegan or raw cuisine.  I had some really great tofu tacos at the Kogi Truck before. They make fusion Korean BBQ food, so I thought I'd make these for my husband since he LOVES tacos.  They were a hit!

Makes 3 tacos as seen above.
 

TOFU TACOS


TOFU MIXTURE
1 8z block of tofu, cut into small cubes
1 table spoon sesame oil
2 table spoons soy sauce
1 teaspoon ginger, grated
2 stalks green onion, chopped
1 teaspoon raw agave nectar 
Chilli Flakes or top the tacos with your favorite hot sauce.  

EVERYTHING ELSE
Corn tortilla
Shredded kale (you can also use lettuce or cabbage)
Tomatoes, chopped
Raw corn kernels
Shredded carrots
Yellow peppers sliced
Guacamole

Heat sesame oil in a small sauce pan, and saute the tofu with all the ingredients for the tofu mixture on medium high until browned.

Warm up your tortillas. I like to warm them over the open flame on the stove.  Fill the tortillas with even amounts of the tofu. Fill with all the veggies and top with your favorite guacamole and hot sauce.  Thai Sriracha would work perfectly too!

Love these tacos.

Enjoy!

This is a great idea! I love the food trucks and recently had a tofu taco and it was really good. I'll have to try your version.
