“Tacos are a food group for those of us that live in Austin – we have tacos for breakfast, lunch, and dinner! Popular taco options include barbacoa, chicken, al pastor, or shrimp, so I wanted to create a taco recipe that was both vegan and vegetarian-friendly.”



For the Barbecue Tofu Tacos

  • 1 Package extra firm tofu, such as House Foods Premium Tofu Extra Firm
  • 1/2 Cup barbecue sauce
  • 6 Corn or flour tortillas
  • 1 Large avocado, peeled, pitted, and diced
  • Roasted corn, optional

For the Slaw

  • 1/2 Cup red cabbage, thinly sliced
  • 2 Teaspoons white wine vinegar
  • 1 Teaspoon lime juice
  • Salt


For the Barbecue Tofu Tacos

Crumble tofu into a bowl and stir in barbecue sauce.

Warm barbecue tofu in a pot. Set aside.

Assemble barbecue tofu on the corn or flour tortillas. Top with slaw, sliced avocado, cilantro, and roasted corn.

Toss sliced red cabbage with vinegar, lime juice, and season with salt.

Remove extra firm tofu from packaging and press with paper towels to remove excess moisture.
