Ingredients

crispy coconut tofu

  • 1 x 350 g brick firm or medium firm tofu
  • 1/2 C all-purpose flour
  • 1 C Thai Kitchen Organic Coconut Milk
  • 1 1/2 tbsp lime juice
  • 1 1/2 C bread crumbs
  • 1/4 C unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp sea salt

avocado crema

  • 1 1/2 ripe avocados
  • 2/3 C Thai Kitchen Organic Coconut Milk
  • 2 limes, juiced
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 tsp hot sauce
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground pepper

slaw

  • 2 C shredded red cabbage
  • 1 red pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 C packed fresh cilantro, finely chopped
  • 1/2 a lime, juiced
  • 1/4 tsp chili flakes (optional)

extras

  • 24 corn tortillas

Instructions

  1. Pre-heat oven to 450°F.

  2. Cut tofu into cubes approximately 3/4”-1” in diameter.
  3. Add all-purpose flour to one mixing bowl. In another mixing bowl combine bread crumbs with shredded coconut, garlic powder, chili powder, and sea salt. In another mixing bowl combine coconut milk with lime juice.
  4. Coat tofu cubes in all-purpose flour. Then take a cube at a time and dredge through the coconut milk and lime juice mixture, then cover in the bread crumb mixture. Set pieces onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 20 mins, flipping the pieces half way through to get all sides golden brown.  While the tofu is baking prepare the slaw and avocado crema.
  5. For the slaw, combine the slaw ingredients together in a bowl and refrigerate until serving tacos.
  6. For the avocado crema, take the pit out of the avocados and scoop the flesh into a blender. Add the remaining avocado crema ingredients and blend until smooth. Refrigerate until ready to serve tacos.
  7. Assemble each taco on 2 tortillas. Add slaw, 4 to 5 cubes of crispy coconut tofu, and drizzle with avocado crema.
