Mexican Vegan Tacos
Our Mexican Vegan Tacos are delicious. Made with Tofu (which is notoriously difficult to cook with so follow this recipe for a winner!) We love Tacos at The Greedy Fox and this is our goto meat-free recipe. Our Mexican Seasoning really takes to the Tofu making it burst with flavour. The mushrooms add a real depth to it too.
1 pack extra firm Tofu, drained. and cut/torn into chunks
300g Chestnut mushroom stalks removed and chopped
2 tbsp The Greedy Fox Mexican Seasoning
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 tbsp smoked paprika [optional] A Dried chilli soaked in 50ml warm water for 30 mins [Optional] 50ml cup water/veg stock if not using dried chilli.

3 Tbsp olive oil.
Place Tofu into a food processor add 1-2tsp The Greedy Fox Mexican Seasoning the crushed garlic, 1/2 the smoked paprika [if using]. Chop until its the rough consistency of ground meat.
Heat 1Tbsp oil over a med/high heat add the mushrooms and saute until they start releasing their juices add 1-2 tsp the Greedy Fox Mexican seasoning, smoked paprika [if using] and season to taste.
Cook until the liquid evaporates and the mushrooms are golden. About 6-8mins.

Add the remaining oil to the pan over a med/high heat saute the tofu until browned around 8 mins add the mushrooms and the liquid cook for a further 2 mins until the liquid has soaked into the tofu and mushrooms.
We serve our Tacos with a little of our buffalo sauce but any salsa will work.
Check seasoning and serve while hot.
