Simple Tofu Taco Lettuce Cups

Simple Tofu Taco Recipe


It's no secret that my favorite vegan recipes are ones that are easy to make and can be cooked in bulk. This Simple Tofu Taco Lettuce Cup recipe was perfect for my meal prep! It does not involve that many ingredients and can be made to eat throughout the week!

(This recipe does involve tofu, something new vegans might not be used to making. I have to be honest, it can be tricky to get it right at first, so if you need help cooking your tofu click here. )

What You Will Need:
-1 package cubed extra firm tofu
-salsa
-black beans
-quinoa 
-bell peppers
-avocado
-nutritional yeast
-cayenne pepper
-olive oil
-garlic powder
-one head of lettuce

Easy Vegan Recipe


1. First, start by draining and drying out your tofu. My "How to Properly Cook Tofu" blog explains exactly how to go through this process. 

2. After tofu is drained, put cubed tofu in a pan with a tablespoon of olive oil heated to medium heat. 

3. Season tofu with nutritional yeast, garlic powder, and cayenne pepper to your taste. Continue flipping tofu until golden brown. 

4. Next, cook black beans and quinoa according to package directions. I just use canned low sodium black beans and mix the two together!

5. While quinoa is cooking, chop up bell peppers and saute them with olive oil and your choice of spices--I prefer cayenne and garlic powder! 

6. Once tofu, black beans, quinoa, and bell peppers are finished, combine in a large pan. 

7. To complete your meal, peel off lettuce leaves and stuff with tofu filling. Top with avocado and salsa!
