Tofu Tacos

READY IN: 21mins
Recipe by Hey Jude

I love tofu and this is a recipe that I adapted from Sunset Magazine. The original recipe calls for cabbage, I use lettuce instead. Use cabbage if you desire.

I just used the tofu part of the recipe to use in place of the usual meat that I make and really liked how they turned out.The marinade is really great. I added some of the marinade to my husbands ground meat and he really liked it. Lots of fresh, spicy flavor. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
