Tacos are a weekly event in my house and tofu makes the perfect base for a delicious vegan taco. This particular tofu has the perfect balance of spice & sweetness. The agave helps caramelize the tofu & the chipotles add a nice smokiness. The slaw is a mix of shredded cabbage & cilantro yogurt sauce. And, of course, I added in some pickled onions & smashed avocado to bring it all together. This is a must make taco night recipe!

How to Make Cilantro Yogurt Sauce

This cilantro yogurt sauce is not only delicious, it is also super simple. You will need non-dairy yogurt, oil, cilantro, garlic, jalapeño, lime juice & salt.

Add everything to a food processor and pulse until combined. Give it a taste and adjust any of the seasonings you feel like you need to. You may want more or less spice, or perhaps an extra clove of garlic!

Shred the cabbage and add it to a bowl with about 1/2 of the cilantro sauce. Give it a toss and set it aside. You can use the rest of the sauce on the tacos.

How to Make Chipotle Agave Tofu

The marinade for the tofu is super simple and takes just a minute to make. Combine oil, chopped chipotles, agave and soy sauce in a bowl.

Drain and press a block of extra firm tofu. Use your hands to crumble the tofu and place it in a large bowl. Sprinkle with corn starch and toss to coat.

Heat some oil in a skillet and add the tofu. Cook until the tofu is browned – approx. 5 minutes. Pour in the sauce and let it cook for another 5-10 minutes. The sauce should start to caramelize and the tofu should get a nice crust to it. Just be sure not to let it sit too long, so that the sauce doesn’t burn.

How to Assemble

Now, it’s time to eat. Heat the tortillas – I like to do this over an open flame! Layer each tortilla with smashed avocado, slaw, tofu & pickled onions. Serve with the extra cilantro sauce on the side.

These tacos have everything – the smoky tofu, tangy slaw and creamy sauce. These vegan tacos are sure to impress at your next dinner party!
