Coconut-Pineapple Tofu Tacos

20190806_194921My favorite thing about tacos is the toppings. They often have all of the flavor and texture anyway – who needs meat?

Here I used the tofu crumble method from blogger It Doesn’t Taste Like Chicken to make something approximating ground meat, then COMBINED it with one of my favorite taco recipes from EmilyC on Food52. It’s crucial to be patient with this method to make sure the tofu is dried out enough that it gains the texture of cooked meat.

So many taco recipes out there are meat tacos, but I hope to ADAPT my favorite taco toppings while exploring the vegetable universe for great fillings. (NOTE: Interested in that bean salad in the picture? Here it is!)
