Serves: 8 small tacos
For the tofu marinade:
  • 14 oz package extra-firm tofu, drained and large diced
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1-inch piece ginger, skin removed
  • ¼ cup low sodium soy sauce
  • ½ lime, juiced
  • 2 tsp sesame oil
  • 2 tsp Mirin
  • 1½ tsp Sriracha
  • ¼ cup water
For the dressing:
  • 1 clove garlic
  • ½ cup chopped onions
  • 1 tbsp gochujang (find at Whole Foods, or Asian grocery store)
  • 2 tbsp vegan mayonnaise
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp mirin
  • 1 tsp lime juice
  • 1 tbsp low sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 1 tbsp canola oil
For the tangy slaw:
  • 4 cups shredded cabbage (and carrots, optional)
  • 2 tsp mirin
  • 2 tsp sugar
To assemble:
  1. In a high speed blender, add the garlic, ginger, soy sauce, lime juice, sesame oil, mirin, Sriracha, and water. Blend until smooth. Place the tofu into a large bowl and pour the marinade over top. Let marinade for about 20 minutes.
  2. While the tofu is marinading, add the garlic, onions, gochujang, mayo, sugar, mirin, lime juice, soy sauce, water and canola oil to the the blender. Blend until smooth and creamy. Set aside.
  3. Heat a large nonstick pan on medium. Once warm, add the tofu with the marinade sauce. Stir fry for about 10 minutes, flipping every once in a while, or until the marinade evaporates and the tofu becomes nice and crispy on the outside. Remove from heat and set aside.
  4. In a large bowl toss together the cabbage, mirin and sugar.
  5. Heat the corn tortillas on a griddle. Scoop a serving of tofu into the taco, top with the tangy cabbage slaw, the pickled beets, drizzle with the dressing, and sprinkle on some sesame seeds. Serve with lime wedges.
  6. Eat immediately as your mouth will already be watering.
