Black Bean Tofu Tacos

Taco Friday... Ole!

Every Friday is taco Friday at the Sheen residence; if you come over for dinner on a Friday, you will be having tacos. This recipe is a hybrid from my good old standby. What can I say, I got frisky this Friday; must have been the Ravenswood Zinfandel :)

1 pkg extra firm tofu (I use the kind in plastic... Soy Deli is my favorite brand
1 1/2 tsp chili powder
1 1/2 tsp cumin
1 1/2 tsp coriander
1/2 tsp salt
1 Tablespoon olive oil (for saute)
4 cloves garlic, chopped or Pampered Chef 'smashed', as I prefer
4 or 5 green onions, chopped
2 cans black beans, drained (you can make your own, but that's another post)
Corn tortillas (I prefer homemade {another post again} but TJs makes a great 'homemade' tortilla)
3 cups rocket or fresh spinach
2 cups chopped tomatoes or fresh salsa (still working on posting the salsa recipe that honey refuses to share!!)
1 cup shredded 'cheese' (use regular cheese if you like but Vegan Gourmet cheese is fantastic in these!)

Open tofu and crumble into a bowl. Add chili powder, cumin, coriander and salt and mix together.

Heat oil in skillet and add green onions; cook about 2 minutes then add tofu mix, stirring then allowing to cook. Let cook about 10 minutes, stirring occassionally.

Add black beans and stir well until beans are heated.

We do family style; i.e. put everything in bowls and let everyone spoon into tortillas what they like... see pictures! You can also spoon mix and add toppings before serving.
