Tofu Tacos

So I had this crazy idea of replacing ground beef with tofu. I thought it would never work but to my surprise, it did! So I'm gonna share this delicious recipe!

By the way, I tweaked the traditional taco recipe so if you're looking for authentic tacos, try Google. So here are the ingredients I (unfortunately) used. ^^Of course, taco shells, onions and tomatoes, Chinese cabbage, firm tofu, McCormick Pesto pasta mix, Maggi magic Sarap seasoning, olive oil, Italian seasoning, pepper and other seasonings that you think will add flavor... the gayer, the better!
Mince the onions and tomatoes and sit fry them in olive oil... when they become soft, add in your seasonings. I added Italian seasoning, it made the onions and tomatoes very aromatic! Then continue stir frying for about 5 minutes then set aside.
Crumble the firm tofu until you achieve the texture as shown above and with a good amount of oil, fry them. Stir occasionally. Basically, this will be your meat and since i don't wanna change the natural and subtle taste of tofu, i just added Maggi seasoning and a little bit of soy sauce. Add a bit of oil when it runs dry. Repeat the process until you achieve this:
Tadah! See how it resembles ground beef? Cool huh? In doing this one, I suggest you use a non stick pan... if you notice i changed pans LOL!

And for a really tangy dressing...
Look for this:
Add 1 tablespoon of this to 1/4 cup mayonnaise and add a splash of lime and a pinch of salt and pepper. This is the real deal, baby! You can also use this dressing for sandwiches or use it as a dip! ^^

OK now we have everything ready...
Let's assemble a taco! Hmm... it doesn't really matter which one should be placed inside first, it's all gonna go down anyway! Haha!
So there you go... tacos... Mikuru style! Let's eat! ^_^
