  • 114 oz block of firm tofu
  • 1 dash of tamari, or soy sauce
  • 46 corn tortillas
  • Creamy Asian Rainbow Slaw
  • 1/2 cup chopped peanuts
  • Additional taco toppings: avocado, guacamole, salsa

Miso & Citrus Marinade:

  • 1 tablespoon light yellow miso
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh grated ginger
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon orange zest
  • 2 tablespoons + 1 teaspoon fresh orange juice
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 pinch chili flakes


  1. Drain the tofu and pat dry. Cut the tofu into 1/2 inch chunks and place in a medium sized bowl or baking dish.
  2. Add all marinade ingredients into a small bowl and whisk until miso is dissolved and everything is combined. Pour marinade over tofu, cover, and refrigerate for at least an hour.
  3. Heat a large pan over medium heat. Scoop the tofu out of the marinade, with your hand or a slotted spoon, and into the pan. Reserve the leftover marinade. Cook tofu until browned and crispy, 15-20 minutes.
  4. Assemble the tacos by placing the tofu down first and then spooning over a little bit of the reserved marinade, then top with coleslaw and chopped peanuts. Add any additional taco toppings of your choice.
