Always vegan, always whole. 

These tacos are super simple to make and they taste great, too. My dad fashioned the recipe and its superb. With easy enough setup and some creativity for the sides you can create a truly incredible vegan meal.  

My family and I just had this dinner last night. With candlelight illuminating the dining room and a great atmosphere of family time I really enjoyed it. And so I hope you enjoy this recipe to! 



Firm tofu, pressed

Mexican Spice Mix (Sprouts or Whole Foods) 

1/3 cup Olive Oil

1 medium Lime

1 medium Orange, squeezed and rind

3 Garlic Cloves minced

Salt and Pepper to taste

Serve with avocado, roasted veggies, and beans.



1.) Rinse tofu in strainer with cold water. Let drain. 

2.) Place napkins on plate and then tofu, and then more napkins on top of tofu. Place a heavy, flat object on this stack to press tofu. Let sit for 20 minutes then replace napkins and let sit again. Try to dry out tofu as much as possible. 

3.) Cut tofu into 3/8 inch (or as desirable) slices and place in flat dish and make sure to spread out tofu and not overlap. 

4.) Combine all other ingredients and place in pan with tofu. Let marinate for around 2 hours and then flip the tofu and let marinate another two. You want to marinate it for quite a while. 

5.) Once ready grill tofu till slightly blackened and serve hot with avocado in the taco and maybe some salsa. On the side I enjoy black beans, roasted asparagus, and Brussels sprouts.
