MAKES ABOUT 8 TACOS
1 small crown broccoli
1 red bell pepper
1 yellow onion
4 cloves garlic
1 to 2 jalapeños*
1 tablespoon ground cumin
1 tablespoon chili powder
2 teaspoons dried oregano
2 teaspoons olive oil
1 block extra-firm tofu
2 to 3 teaspoons soy sauce, tamari, or Bragg’s
2 tablespoons lemon or lime juice
1⁄3 cup nutritional yeast**
2 teaspoons of your favorite hot sauce
8 corn or flour tortillas, warmed
1 Chop up the broccoli into pieces no larger than a nickel, aiming for about 2 cups. Dice the
bell pepper and onion into pea-size pieces. Shred the carrot on that box grater you think you
bought a while back. Mince the garlic and jalapeño. In a small bowl, mix together the cumin,
chili powder, and oregano and set that shit aside. PREP WORK, MOTHERFUCKER.
2 Now it’s time to cook. In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the onion and
cook until it starts to look golden around the edges, 3 to 5 minutes. Now add the chopped
broccoli and bell pepper and cook until the broccoli starts to get tender but isn’t all fucking
limp, another 3 to 4 minutes. Don’t overcook this shit or your broccoli will taste like little
soggy trees. Now add the garlic and jalapeño and sauté for about 30 seconds.
3 While that shit is going on, drain the tofu and squeeze out as much water as possible. (You
can just use your hands; no need to press this bastard.) Now crumble that tofu into the pan in
quarter-size chunks. Some small bits are cool but the more you stir it, the more shit is going
to break down, so its better to start bigger and work to smaller, you know? Sauté that tofu
around with the veggies for 2 to 3 minutes and try to get it all mixed in. If the pan starts
looking dry, add a splash of water and move the fuck on. Add the soy sauce and lemon/lime
juice all over the pan. Add the spice blend, shredded carrot, and nutritional yeast right after
and stir those fuckers in. Let this all cook together for about 2 minutes so that the flavors
blend. Top with the hot sauce, stir, and then pile the filling into your waiting tortillas.
Breakfast is served, bitches.
