Ingredients

  • 12 oz block extra firm tofu 350 g
  • ½ cup tomato sauce not ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons taco seasoning homemade or store bought

Tacos

  • 8 small tortillas or taco shells
  • 4 cups cole slaw mix or lettuce
  • 2 avocados sliced

Instructions

  • Prepare - Heat broiler up. Mash tofu into crumbles in a bowl, then spread on a large baking sheet.
  • Broil - Broil for 3-5 minutes, stirring the tofu up every 1-2 minutes, until it is golden and slightly crunchy. Some small bits might brown and that's OK. When tofu texture is where you want it, remove it from the oven.
