I was first attracted to this recipe because I'm a big Beatles fan, and secondly because it's a good vegan recipe. Pretty easy to make, and delicious!

Gawsh, we need a 10-star reviewing system! This is a fantastic recipe! The tofu did not taste tofu-ey at all, and my sister thought that I'd used panir! I scaled it to 4 servings, and used 1/4 cup of tomato paste dissolved in 1/3 cup water for the tomato sauce. I used a little less of chili powder since I don't like spicy food. The filling was great even in the plain wheat rotis that we make. Thanks Mirjam, I LOVE this one!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Saute the onion, garlic and bell pepper in oil for 2 to 3 minutes.
  2. Add tofu, chili powder, cumin, oregano and soy sauce.
  3. Cook for 3 minutes.
  4. Add tomato sauce and simmer over low heat until mixture is fairly dry.
  5. Heat tortillas in a heavy, ungreased skillet, turning each from side to side until soft and pliable (omit this step if using taco shells).
