Tofu Tacos

Ingredients:OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
10 oz. Super Firm Tofu
Shredded coleslaw mix
1 small bunch of radishes, thinly sliced
½ cup chopped fresh cilantro
1 bunch scallions, sliced
Extra-virgin olive oil
2 limes
6 oz. plain Greek yogurt
Ground pepper
Garlic clove
1 tablespoon of low sodium taco seasoning
Whole-wheat tortillas
Shredded part-skim mozzarella or pepper jack cheese
Salsa

Directions:

If the tofu you purchased is not in water then you do not need to press.  If you do need to press, lay tofu on a plate on top of paper towel and place another paper towel on top of tofu.  Press down to remove excess water.  Slice tofu into small cubes and put into a nonstick skillet.  Drizzle olive oil over tofu and mix in taco seasoning.  Heat over medium-high heat and cook until tofu begins to crisp (about 5 minutes).  In a mixing bowl, mix together 1 garlic clove (use garlic press), cilantro, ground pepper, 1 tablespoon of lime zest, juice from ½ a lime, and Greek yogurt.  Warm up the tortillas according to directions listed on package.  Fill each tortilla with tofu, cheese, radishes, coleslaw, and top with yogurt sauce and salsa.  Serve each soft taco with a lime wedge.
