These vegan tacos are perfect for the upcoming warm weather! The tofu is marinated and grilled until crispy. The street corn salad is fresh and bright, with lots of zing from the lime juice. The spicy mayo adds the perfect kick. And the avocado brings it all together.

How to Make the Tofu

This might be my new favorite way to make tofu! Drained and pressed tofu is sliced super thin and then marinated in a zesty citrus marinade. For the marinade you’ll need:

You want to let the tofu marinate for at least 30 minutes – but longer is better. Heat an indoor griddle, non-stick skillet or outdoor grill and lightly oil it. Once hot add the tofu and grill on both sides until charred. Feel free to brush the extra marinade on the tofu as its cooking.

Once the tofu is crispy on both sides, remove it from the heat and slice it into strips. Toss with lime juice & salt and it is ready to go.

While the tofu is marinating, make the street corn salad. Here is what you need:

  • corn
  • jalapeño 
  • red onion 
  • cilantro
  • green onion
  • cumin
  • chili powder
  • vegan feta 
  • lime juice
  • salt

This is the type of salad you really want to make to your own taste. Add everything to a large bowl, give it a toss and adjust any of the seasonings you need to – I like to add lots of lime juice to mine. Set the corn salad aside until you are ready to eat.

Assemble

To assemble, heat your tortillas – a very important step! If you are using my spicy mayo (see recipe), spread some on each tortilla. Top it with the grilled tofu and street corn salad. You can also serve the tacos with extra cilantro and lime wedges.

These tacos have summer written all over them and I know they will be in my regular rotation!
