These tofu tacos are a quick, easy, vegetarian meal and makes enough for dinner and lunch the next day. I keep an all-natural taco seasoning on hand to use in these but you can easily use your own blend of spices. They're versatile and can be jazzed up with olives, jalepenos, cheese, avocado, hot sauce or pico de gallo. This can also be just as tasty eaten on it's own or over brown rice. —thesinglebite

*Note: Here are some tips on how to drain and press tofu as well as how to freeze and save the remainder of the block. I also like to freeze the rest of the tomatoes in small tupperware containers (about 4 ounce size) so that I have ready to use for future recipes.
