You will need
* 2 Red Onions
* Block of Firm Tofu (I used High Protein Tofu because it's denser and I don't have to drain the
* 1/4 of a Bunch of Cilantro
* 3 - 4 Green Onions, out of the bunch
* 6 cloves of garlic (Okay, I used 10, but I'm crazy for garlic) Chop it or mince it.
* Vegetable oil
* 1 - 1 1/2 Tbs Cumin
* 2 Tbs Chili Powder
* 1 - 1 1/2 tsp Salt
* Corn Tortillas
* 1 Avocado
* 1 large can of Black Beans(30 oz)
* Juice of 3 - 4 limes
* Drizzles of hot sauce. I prefer Tapatio.
First, roughly chop one of your onions. Coat a large pan with a thin layer of vegetable oil. Cook onion - I start on high and go down to medium low once I hear it sizzling. Cook until transparent and soft or caramelized. I go for caramelized.
|Roughly chopped, bitches.|
Be careful with garlic. You don't want it to burn or brown because it becomes bitter.
I mix everything around with my spatula and turn the heat down to medium. I add the cumin, chili powder, salt, hot sauce (I like spicy-about 2 tsp or more) and the juice of 3 limes. Again, mix everything together.
The close up. Sorry I'm not a better photographer.
Next, I add my can of beans. I add the beans and the liquid! I cook the tofu and beans together on medium/ medium high until all the liquid is absorbed.
|In the future I am going to wipe up the stove before I start taking pictures. So embarrassing.|
You will want to finely chop:
* 1/4 of a bunch of cilantro
* A little less than 1/4 of a medium sized red onion.
* 3 - 4 individual green onions from the bunch.
Mix together and add a dash of salt, the juice of one lime and 1 diced avocado.
You are almost ready! But what about your corn tortillas? Heat 'em up. I have a gas stove, and heat them directly over the flame, a few seconds on each side until they are warm and can fold without tearing. You can also fry them up.
Way too many colors going on here. Oh well, you get the idea.
What started out as taco night for the sake of measuring my ingredients out, turned into a small gathering. What can I say? When people know I'm cooking, they find their way to my apartment!
As long as your corn tortillas are wheat free, this a gluten free meal!
