Recipe Note: This is a vegan recipe. To make this a non-vegan recipe, substitute real mayonnaise for vegenaise and substitute your favorite taco meat for tofu.
1 block extra-firm tofu
1 package coleslaw
1 package flour or corn tortillas
Taco fixings (chopped tomato, onion and avocado)
1/4 cup Follow Your Heart Grapeseed Vegenaise
1 tablespoon lime juice
1-2 tablespoon Smokin’ Texas Gourmet Smokin’ Chipotle Pepper
Sauce, or more to desired spiciness
Press the tofu for about 30 minutes to release water. I usually wrap the tofu in paper towels, set it on a plate and the put one plate on top of the tofu (almost like a tofu sandwich). I then place a bowl or other heavy object on the top plate to add weight, which will press the water out of the tofu.
Preheat your oven to 350˚ Fahrenheit. Spray non-stick cooking spray on a cooking sheet and bake the tofu for 30-40 minutes, flipping halfway through for even cooking. This is the most basic way to cook the tofu for this recipe. You can experiment with marinades for additional flavor.
While the tofu is baking, get your taco fixings ready and make the chipotle lime mayo sauce. To make the sauce, combine the vegenaise, lime juice and chipotle pepper sauce in a bowl. Mix and add more chipotle pepper sauce until desired spiciness.
Once the tofu is ready, slices it into cubes. Serve the tofu on a tortilla. Top with coleslaw, taco fixings and chipotle lime mayo sauce. Serve warm and bring on the fiesta!
