You can’t argue with the benefits of a plant based diet. Plants are kind to the body and kind to the planet. Adding more of them will only benefit you in the long run. You know by now I don’t advocate for labels. I do advocate for eating a little bit of everything in moderation. That especially applies to the meat category because bottom line it’s one of the more expensive items for our wallets and for the planet. I encourage you to choose even one day a week to go meat free. Let veggies be the main event. They don’t get nearly enough love.
I am a fish taco lover. If I head to a taco joint and there’s a fish taco, I’m in. These Crispy Tofu Street Tacos with Spicy Chile Sauce mimic that citrus spicy flavor that often comes with a fish taco. Just, you know, minus the fish. My husband and I agreed that if I could somehow get the tofu to flake like fish, people could be fooled.
Give Tofu a Chance
When people tell me that tofu tastes like nothing, I ask them, “what does chicken taste like?” As in when was the last time you took chicken from the fridge, flopped it in a pan with no seasoning and ate it. So far no one has answered yes. Tofu is full of protein, it’s quite cost effective, and it takes on the flavor of whatever you put on it. I hesitate to say “just like chicken,” but you get where I am going here.
I will be adding these tacos to our regular rotation. If you’ve been waiting for the right time to try tofu, this may be the recipe that sells you.
