    Bec's Note:

    From a vegetarian cookbook of mine. I love Couscous (KOOS-koos)- it is a quick-cooking grain made from ground semolina in the shape of very tiny beads, so it is a cool change from regular pasta! Also, I suppose you can use soft shell tacos shells, not just hard shell.

      First, thank you for posting this as I have lost the cookbook this recipe was in. My family, too, likes this recipe. I mash the tofu with an egg masher, and it gives the filling a consistency of having ground beef in it. My non vegetarians like it that way.

      This was a very flavorful and a VERY fast vegetarian dinner. I added some chopped green pepper for crunch and pickled jalapeno for heat but otherwise kept it exactly as posted.
