Cooking Directions

  • Press as much water out of your tofu as possible, then chop into ½ inch cubes and place in a large bowl. Add salsa, chili powder, smoked paprika, garlic, cumin, turmeric and a dash of salt and pepper. Mix gently and set aside to marinate for at least 5-10 minutes.
  • In a pan over medium heat, add a small amount of oil (or use water or veggie broth for oil-free!) and add marinated tofu. Cook for about 15 minutes, turning every 3-5 minutes, adding in lime juice for the last 3 minutes. Remove from pan.
  • In the same pan, (you can also add another drop of oil to help the tortilla brown, but this isn't required), place tortilla down, and on only 1/2 of the tortilla, add a sprinkle of vegan cheese, tofu, tomatoes, onions and mushrooms. Sprinkle a final layer of vegan cheese and flip the other side of the tortilla over.
  • Press down and cook until cheese is melty and the tortilla is nice and brown. Top with guacamole, salsa or cilantro, enjoy!
