The Grumpy Garbanzo vegan food for real life

Salsa Tofu Tacos


I'm a little bit convinced that homemade corn tortillas can make anything taste good. If you've never made corn tortillas, please try it! I have a recipe in the Morsels tab. All you need is masa, water, and salt. It's really easy, and if you like tacos, it just may be life–changing.

Okay, about the tacos:

In all honesty, this recipe is the result of Covid quarantining, a lack of groceries, and the realization that I've been eating pinto beans at almost every meal lately. Sautéing crumbled tofu with salsa and spices brings a shredded chicken vibe that's a nice change of pace from bean tacos. I did, indeed, chuck frozen broccoli into tacos because I was desperate to see something green on my plate. That said, the tofu, salsa, onion, and broccoli combination was tasty enough that I will be making it again. Either it's good, or homemade tortillas are just that magical.

What did I use and why?

Trader Joe's Vegan Chicken–Less Seasoning Salt: I've been loving adding this to tofu, beans, soups, stir fry...anything that could benefit from a savory, umami, dare–I–say chicken–y flavor. Highly recommend!
