Traditional Tacos with Tofu "Hamburger"

Traditional Tacos with Tofu "Hamburger"

What could be a more perfect dinner for Cinco de Mayo than traditional tacos with folded corn tortilla shells and all the trimmings? But when this day set aside to celebrate Mexican heritage falls on Meatless Monday, these innovative Traditional Tacos with Tofu "Hamburger" from Letty's Kitchen sound even better. The tofu is purposely frozen (right in the package) and then thawed when you're ready to make the tacos; when the thawed tofu is fried it has a texture that closely resembles hamburger. Letty serves her tofu tacos with all the traditional toppings, like shredded cabbage or lettuce, avocado slices, grated cheese, chopped tomatoes, chopped green onion, chopped cilantro and of course, salsa.
