Great weekend recipe to share with friends. This recipe can easily made into burritos as well.
Ingredients
  • Makes 10 tacos
  • 1 small head broccoli - about 2 cups, chopped small (peel any larger stalks first)
  • 8 oz. extra firm tofu - press out water - crumble (larger pieces are okay)
  • 1 red bell pepper - chopped into teensy bits (1/3 in.)
  • 1 purple carrot (any color will do, but purple gives you stripes!) in large shreds
  • 1 cup corn *use bbq corn (frozen or canned works) for extra flavor
  • 8 sweet gold pearl onions - chop to size of an actual pearl
  • 4 stalks green onion - finely chopped
  • 3 cloves of garlic - minced
  • 1 or 2 jalapenos - remove seeds & mince
  • 3 to 5 Tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1 Tbsp ground cumin
  • 1 Tbsp chili powder *I used Ancho chili powder
  • 2 Tsp dried oregano
  • 2 Tsp grapeseed or sunflower oil
  • 3 Tsp soy sauce or tamari - combine with next two
  • 1½ Tbsp lemon or lime juice
  • 1 Tbsp water
  • You can add avocados, lime wedges and cilantro for topping.
Instructions
  1. You'll need a big skillet for this pile of deliciousness.
  2. Heat oil on medium heat and cook onion until translucent (about 3 minutes).
  3. Add all vegetables except corn, cook uncovered (about 4 to 5 minutes).
  4. Keep your eye on the tenderness. Don't let them get mushy.
  5. (I set a few carrot pieces aside to add as garnish because I like the crunch).
  6. Stir in jalapeno and garlic, add corn (drain thoroughly first), stir again.
  7. Put the tofu in (told you it needs a big pan!); now sprinkle the dry seasonings
  8. evenly over whole pan.
  9. Stir gently so you don't break the tofu up too much.
  10. Sprinkle the soy/lime mixture all over.
  11. Cook for 2 or 3 more minutes until all veggies are tender.
  12. If consistency is still too wet, keep turning the mix over gently.
  13. Warm small corn tortillas for tacos or larger flour tortillas if you want to make burritos.
  14. A chunky tomato salsa or pico de gallo can be added a to kick the flavor up a notch.
  15. If you want to breathe fire, add whichever hot sauce is your favorite.
  16. Serve sliced avocados, lime wedges and cilantro on the side.
  17. Would be great with a crisp, light beer.
  18. I put ice & lime wedges in a glass of watermelon/mint lemonade.
