TOFU BREAKFAST TACOS

Ingredients: 

  • 1 (14-ounce) package extra-firm tofu, drained
  • 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast
  • 2 teaspoons onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon turmeric
  • 2 tablespoons Bragg Liquid Aminos
  • 8 corn tortillas, warmed
  • Salsa
  • Toppings of choice: onions, cilantro, greens, potatoes, avocado, etc.

Method: 

Drain tofu and place the block on a plate. Cover with another plate and weight the top with a food can or other object of about 1 pound. Let stand 20 to 30 minutes to extract excess liquid. Pour off liquid. Crumble tofu and place it in a bowl. Sprinkle with flour, yeast, onion powder, garlic powder and turmeric and toss. Sprinkle with liquid aminos and toss again. 

Heat a large cast-iron skillet or nonstick pan over medium heat until hot. Add tofu mixture and cook, stirring and scraping the bottom of the pan frequently with a spatula to prevent sticking, until tofu is browned and crisp in places. Serve with the warmed tortillas, salsa and toppings of choice and let diners assemble their own tacos.
