Meatless Monday-Taco Tofu Lettuce Wraps

I made this recipe for the first time last night and was happy that it turned out better than I expected.  I didn’t know how cooking tofu on the stove would work, but trust me, you definitely need to try this recipe!  Even if you don’t like tofu, this taco tofu doesn’t tasted like tofu…too much.

1 Packet of Extra Firm Tofu

1/2 Cup Water

1/2 Packet of Taco Seasoning

Olive Oil

Black Beans

Pepper

Tomatoes

Olives

Avocado

Shredded Cheese

Lettuce Wraps or Tacos

Drain tofu from the container

Place tofu on a plate covered with paper towels

Place another plate on top of the tofu and add a weighted object (I used a can of beans)

Change the paper towels a few time to get as much liquid out of the tofu as possible

Coat the bottom of a pot on stove with olive oil
