Taco mix

  • 250g firm tofu
  • 4 mushrooms
  • 1 zucchini
  • 1 red capsicum
  • 1 onion
  • 1tbsp oil


  • 2 limes
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • pinch cumin
  • pinch cayenne pepper


  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp lime juice
  • salt and pepper

Other filling/ingredients

  • Tomato Salsa
  • Shredded Lettuce
  • 8 Tortillas


  1. Mix the marinade ingredients in a bowl/seal-able container.
  2. Drain the tofu and pat dry with a paper towel. Slice into 1/2cm thick strips. Slice the mushrooms and zucchini into similar sized slices. Add to the marinade and stir to coat.
  3. Marinade for at least one hour. This can be done longer (even overnight), shaking occasionally to mix.
  4. Heat the oil in a frypan and fry the sliced onion and capsicum for 3-4 minutes.
  5. Add the marinaded ingredients, and marinade too. Fry the mixture until the tofu/capsicum starts to blacken slightly.
  6. Serve in warmed tortillas with lettuce, salsa and/or guacamole and any other desired toppings.
  7. To make guacamole, scoop out the flesh from the avocado and mash with a fork (or blitz in a food processor).
  8. Add the remaining ingredients, then adjust for taste. Add more lime juice if too oily/avocado-y. Add more garlic if you can’t taste it. Add more salt if the taste seems flat. Add more oil if too zesty from the lime.
