Recipe type: Tofu
Cuisine: Mexican
Serves: 4 servings
You'll need:
  • 1 package firm tofu
  • 1 tablespoon Sriracha
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • ½ cup fine cornmeal
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ⅛ teaspoon pepper
  • ¼ cup oil
  • 3 scallions
  • 1 bunch cilantro
  • ¼ cup yogurt
  • warm corn tortillas
Other toppings:
  • shredded cheese
  • chopped tomato
  • chopped onion
  • sweet corn
  • avocado
  • lime wedges
  1. Cut the tofu into ¾ inch cubes. In a wide, shallow bowl, combine the Sriracha and honey, and gently toss the tofu in the mixture. In another wide, shallow bowl, combine the cornmeal, chili powder, cumin, salt, garlic powder, and pepper. Toss the tofu in this dry mixture until well-coated.
  2. In a cast iron or non-stick skillet, heat the oil over medium high heat. Add the tofu and allow the pieces to crisp up on all sides. While that's happening, whizz up the scallions, cilantro, and yogurt in a food processor or blender. Build your tacos with tortillas, your sauce, and whatever toppings you like.
