  1. Wrap 14 oz of tofu (a standard block will be 14 oz) in a cloth or paper towel and press out moisture for 30 minutes by placing a heavy object on top. A heavy pot/pan or a big book will work.
  2. In a large bowl, use your fingers to crumble the tofu into tiny bits.
  3. Whisk dry ingredients in a small bowl and pour into bowl with tofu. Stir well to coat crumbled tofu.
  4. In a pan over medium heat, drizzle a bit of olive oil and add tofu mixture, stirring frequently until warmed. Set aside in a bowl.
  5. In the same pan, add more oil and keep the heat on medium. Add in mushrooms, parsley, salt and pepper and sauté until tender.
  6. Assemble tacos as desired.


Make sure to press the tofu by wrapping it in a paper towel/cloth and setting a heavy object on top of it. Let it press for 30 minutes.

This recipe works great as a breakfast bar. Put each component in a small bowl and let your family customize their own breakfast tacos.
