  • Knife
  • Knife
  • Frying Pan
  • Stirring Spoon or Spatula


  • 1 tbsp Olive oil
  • 1 Brown onion peeled, quartered and sliced
  • 2 Cloves garlic peeled, sliced
  • 200 grams Firm tofu crumbled
  • ½ Can Chopped tomatoes
  • ½ tsp Paprika
  • ½ tsp Liquid smoke
  • 2 tbsp Tamari soy sauce
  • ½ tsp Black pepper
  • 8 mini Tortillas or Taco shells

For the garnish (to taste)

  • Mixed lettuce
  • Salsa or guacamole
  • Fresh cherry tomatoes quartered
  • Pickled jalapenos
  • Sriracha
  • Lime wedges


  • Heat the oil in the frying pan over medium heat. Add onion and garlic. Saute for 3-5 minutes, until the onions start turning translucent.
  • Add crumbled tofu and keep cooking everything together for about 5 minutes.
  • Next, add canned tomatoes, soy sauce, paprika, liquid smoke and black pepper. Cook until the liquid is absorbed, and the mixture is a reddish-brown colour.
  • Prepare your garnish and tortillas (or taco shells). If desired, warm up the tortillas or shells in the oven.
  • Serve the tacos family style: add your favourite garnish and as much filling as you like. Drizzle with some hot sauce or lime juice and enjoy!


  • You can use regular soy sauce instead of tamari provided you don’t have a gluten allergy.
  • If you have a soy allergy, you can use cooked lentils (drained and rinsed) instead of tofu and liquid aminos instead of soy sauce.
  • If you don’t have access to liquid smoke, use smoked paprika instead of regular paprika.
  • This filling is also great for a burrito, along with some beans and rice!
