Mango Tofu Tacos
Ingredients50 m servings 326 cals
- Cover the bottom of a skillet with coconut oil; warm over medium heat. Add onion, serrano pepper, and garlic; cook and stir until onion is lightly browned, about 10 minutes. Add tofu; stir to coat.
- Stir cilantro stems, 1/4 package taco seasoning, 1 teaspoon cumin, and 1 teaspoon coriander into tofu mixture; cook and stir until fragrant and tofu is cooked through, about 5 minutes. Add mangos and 1/4 package taco seasoning; cook, waiting 3 to 5 minutes before stirring. Add chili powder and salt; stir to coat. Season with more cumin and coriander if desired.
- Simmer tofu-mango mixture until most of liquid has evaporated, about 10 more minutes. Stir in cilantro leaves 1 minute before serving.
- Cook's Note:
- I prefer using coconut oil in this recipe because of its flavor with the mangoes, but any flavorless oil could be substituted instead (canola, safflower, etc). If you prefer crisper tofu, add the tofu to the hot oil first, quickly followed by the garlic, letting it brown slightly before adding the onions and other ingredients. If you aren't sure of what portions of cumin, coriander, and chili powder to use, just use 1/2 packet of the taco seasoning, and neglect the extra spices.

I liked this recipe, but I thought that a whole bunch of cilantro was a bit of overkill so I cut back on it and it made for a great meal. Thanks Eric!
I loved this recipe but I'm not a huge fan of cilantro so I used a 1/4 of what he called for and it was still fantastic!
Zesty, savory and sweet all in one dish, perfect combination of spices , who would have thought, highly recommended if you need new taco ideas. PS there is never enough cilantro in one dish, it ...
Loved these flavors together! Made for a great change to taco night! I halved the recipe and it will probably give me 3-4 servings. I thought the cilantro amount was perfect but I am a cilant...
Also added some lime juice on top after cooking. Also instead of Serrano peppers I used 1 and a half jalapeños. I used extra firm tofu which stays togther better in a stir fry situation. Overal...
This was really good. I just wish there was more mango in proportion to tofu. Also, i think I'll increase some of the spices next time. Half of the recipe was more than enough to feed two people...
