Directions See How It's Made
- Drain the tofu and place in a mixing bowl. Mash well using a potato masher.
- Add all the other ingredients except for the onion, mushrooms, garlic and salt. Stir to combine.
- Cover bowl and refrigerate for 30 minutes to allow the ingredients to marinate.
- Once the mixture has set for 30 minutes, heat up a sauté pan on medium heat and add the oil.
- Sauté the onions, mushrooms and garlic until softened, about 3 minutes.
- Increase heat to medium-high; add the tofu mixture. Cook for about 10 minutes or until ingredients are browned, adding more cooking oil if needed. Stir mixture often. Season with salt to taste.
- Divide and fill steamed tortillas with the tofu mixture. Add your favorite toppings. We like sliced green onions, freshly made red salsa and fresh cilantro!
