Tofu Tacos + Recipe Link-Up


Serving size: 4

Ingredients
2 T olive oil
2 packages of tofu, diced
1 can of black beans, drained
1 package of taco seasoning
1 bag of lettuce
1/2 a cup of red onion
1/2 red bell pepper
1/2 yellow bell pepper
cilantro to taste
corn tortillas
cheese (I use a monterey jack, mozzarella, cheddar cheese blend or almond cheese)
1 or 2 limes

Instructions
If you want your tofu to be firmer, bake it first. I always do this since Scott prefers it this way. For tacos, I usually season the baked the tofu with lime, cilantro, red onion and garlic (you know, just cuz I love the way garlic smells when it cooks, plus it's healthy). Further tofu baking instructions can be found here.
Towards the end of the tofu's bake time combine the bell peppers and red onion in a large skillet. Use a little olive oil to help cook the veggies without burning them, and then add the taco seasoning (I usually only use about half the package).
Add tofu, pre-baked or not, in with the sizzling vegetables in the pan and continue cooking for 5-10 minutes (5 for baked 10 for raw). 
Now its time to warm the black beans and tortillas. Put the beans over low heat in a pot and wrap the tortillas in foil and place them in the already warm oven until both reach your desired temperature.
Finally, place cooked ingredients and lettuce into tortillas and sprinkle with cheese and lime juice.
Enjoy!

    1. And here I am thinking I made it up haha. I just googled it and there's a ton of links and information about Meat-Free Monday. This is all good news though! I'm going to try your salsa tonight, p.s.
