Tofu Tacos were what was for dinner tonight. They were nice enough that B ate all of his! Thor was with Grandma, and so was spared the indignity of being served faux meat.
Some prep tips:
1. Julie Anne Rhodes taught me that the way to prep your tofu for any kind of crumbles is to freeze, then thaw overnight. The ice crystals breaking down does something to the texture that makes it easier to work with.
2. You’ll be working with hot peppers, so if you are at all like me (forgetful and itchy), wear gloves. You’ll be less inclined to rub your eyes with latex on your fingers.
3. To warm your soft tortillas, put 4 at a time in the microwave for 15 seconds, then flip them and nuke for 15 more seconds.
4. To get the goody out of an avocado, slice it longways, all the way around, then twist the halves until they just slide apart. You can slide a spoon between the skin and the meat, and work it around the edges to pull the meat out whole. Do the same thing with the pit–just work around it with a spoon until it pops out. I learned this watching the guys at Dino’s Subs.
