OK, guys—are you ready for something new? All month, we’ve been blogging delish taco recipes like Whitney’s Vegan Chicken Fajita Tacos, Cody’s Black Bean Tacos, and Annie’s Vegan Tacos al Pastor, but this week I’m gonna shake things up a bit and get creative with Vietnamese-inspired tacos!
If you have never had Vietnamese food, well … what are you thinking?! It usually includes fresh herbs, veggies, and spices, and tofu is a staple. Here’s my take on Vietnamese tofu tacos:
1/2 lb. (or 1/2 block) super-firm tofu, drained (Try this one from Trader Joe’s—it will change your life!)
1 Tbsp. soy sauce or tamari
Your favorite spices, to taste (optional)
4 corn or flour tortillas
1 cup chopped romaine lettuce
1/2 cup chopped green onions
1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1/2 cup chopped fresh mint
1/2 jalapeño, sliced
1/2 cup grated carrots
Sriracha, to taste
Makes 4 tacos
Yum! Seriously—this is so simple, so delish, and so good for you! Going vegan is so great because you end up trying new foods, learning how to cook, wowing your friends and fam, and feeling guilt-free after dinner.
Try it out, and let me know what you think!
