Tofu Tacos w/ salsa verde

Who doesn’t love tacos!?! These vegan tacos are healthy and delicious. The avocado cream is creamy and delicious. Dipping the tacos in the spicy salsa verde is the perfect addition to this dish.

Watch me make these tofu tacos on YouTube, or keep reading for the recipe.

Ingredients
  • 1 c. masa
  • 1/2 block firm tofu
  • 3 small or 2 medium red tomatoes
  • 5 tomatillos
  • 1 bunch of cilantro
  • 1 onion
  • 1 hot pepper (optional) <I used a serrano pepper.>
  • 1 avocado
  • 1/2 c. unsweetened flax milk (or any unsweetened, unflavored milk)
  • cooking oil of your choice
  • salt
  • garlic powder
  • taco seasoning
  • chives (optional)
Make the corn tortillas…

Add tablespoons of water to your masa powder until it all sticks together, but is not wet. Roll out 2 tbs of dough into a thin circle about 4 inches in diameter (or you can use a tortilla press if you have one.) Fry in a pan on medium high with a little oil until light brown spots start to appear on both sides.

Make the pico de gallo…

Chop the red tomatoes, onions, half of the hot pepper and cilantro into small pieces (or use a food processor.) Voila! You can add salt and garlic powder if you want, but I’m a fan of the natural flavor with no spices.

Make the avocado cream…

Add the avocado (obviously peel and take out the pit… do I need to say these things… I don’t know!) to a blender with the flax milk. Blend until creamy with no lumps. Once again, add seasoning if you like. This stuff is superb!

Make the salsa verde…

Add the tomatillos, onions, cilantro, other half of the hot pepper, salt and garlic powder to your food processor or blender and pulse until desired consistency. Add to a pan on medium heat and cook for about 5 minutes. The salsa will turn a different color green when the tomatoes are cooked. Refrigerate until cold.

Make the seasoned tofu…

Squeeze excess water out of the tofu (either with a tofu press or your hands.) Add to a pan with a tsp. of oil and a Tbs. of taco seasoning. Fry on medium high for 5-7 minutes.

Plate your tacos and enjoy!!!
