Instructions

Crispy fried tofu

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C).
  2. Cut the tofu into small cubes of about 0.5" (1 cm). Place the tofu on a clean absorbent kitchen towel or paper towels. Thoroughly pat dry to remove any excess moisture; this step is key for crispiness.
  3. Over medium-high heat, heat the olive oil in an oven-safe skillet, or use a regular frying pan and a baking tray lined with parchment paper.
  4. When the oil is hot, add the tofu and salt. Fry for a couple of minutes or until the tofu is lightly golden. Add the tamari soy sauce and taco seasoning, or the flavorings of your choice. Stir the tofu, combining it well.
  5. Transfer the oven-safe skillet with the tofu to the oven, or transfer the tofu to the parchment-lined baking tray. Bake for 15 minutes or until the tofu is crispy.
  6. Guacamole

  7. Peel the avocado and mash with a fork.
  8. Add the onion, lime juice, tomato, cilantro, and garlic.
  9. Season with salt and pepper, and mix until well combined.
  10. Salad

  11. Prepare the vegetables and add them to a bowl.
  12. Drizzle with olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and season to taste.
