Tofu Tacos

My wife and I were watching the Next Food Network Star and Jeff had used Tofu because he could not find ground turkey or chicken, with what seemed like great success. So tonight I decided to to try my hand had at making Tofu, mind you this was my first try … ever.

I decided to make a Tofu Taco by first sweating off some onion and garlic in a frying pan before adding the the soft Tofu I had already cubed. I added a pinch of salt, a generous portion of Adobo, cilantro and just a dash of red pepper flakes for a hint of heat.

About half way through I had to drain the liquid from the pan, and after that I threw in my zucchini cuts and kept it flowing so not to burn.

Using romaine lettuce leafs as the delivery vessel was a fun twist and I topped it all off with seasoned cut grape tomatoes, salsa verde and goat cheese crumbles with a side of pine nut couscous.

Tonight’s dinner was a surprise hit and one that I hope inspires you to try new foods.

Enjoy your time in the kitchen,

About Brian

A few years ago I had gotten really sick with a mystery infection that put me in the hospital for over a week. When I got home I wasn't much better off. I had to have foot surgery and was laid up on the sofa for awhile. In that time I watched alot of Food Network and really gained a passion for food and it's preparation, cooking for my family was something I could still do even when I wasn't feeling my best and it was a way to help myself reach a healthier goal as well. Now I find myself always looking for healthier options that still taste wonderful and with my wifes gluten allergy I have even more of a challenge of feeding everyone. Honestly ... I am loving every minute of it. Because my kitchen has become my place of Zen.
