MEDITERRANEAN STYLE TOFU TACOS 

If you enjoy tofu you should try these Mediterranean Style Tofu Tacos. 

I know many of your are trying to incorporate more plant-based meals into your diet. If so, this is a recipe for you! 

The tofu makes the perfect healthy filling in these Mediterranean inspired tacos. You could use tortillas or try pita. 

Once you add the tofu to the tortilla you will then top with your favorite Mediterranean ingredients.

I like to add feta cheese, an easy tomato, cucumber and red onion “salsa” and some fresh parsley and green onion.

Other great Mediterranean toppings you could add to these tacos are kalamata olives, artichokes, hummus, tzatziki, roasted red peppers or diced bell peppers. 

These tacos are so easy to make and are perfect for a healthy, quick weeknight meal.
