Ingredients

Tacos

  • 1 14-oz package extra-firm tofu, drained
  • 1 ½ tbsp canned chipotle chiles in adobo, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp fresh orange juice
  • 2 tsp raw honey
  • 8 6-inch corn tortillas
  • 1 large red bell pepper, cut into ¼-inch strips
  • 1 large portobello mushroom, stem discarded, cut into ½-inch-thick slices
  • ¼ sweet onion, cut into ¼-inch slices (about 2 tbsp)
  • 2 tsp safflower oil
  • ¼ tsp sea salt
  • ½ tsp ground black pepper

Guacamole

  • 3 tbsp sweet onion, finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp fresh cilantro, chopped
  • ½ jalapeño chile pepper, finely chopped (about 1 tbsp)
  • 1 small avocado, peeled, pitted, and diced
  • 1 tsp fresh lime juice
  • ¼ tsp sea salt

Preparation

  1. Cut the tofu block lengthwise into 4 slabs. To drain, arrange on a paper towel-lined baking sheet, cover with more paper towels, and top with another baking sheet. Using cans, weigh the baking sheet down and leave at room temperature for 30 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, prepare the guacamole: On a cutting board, finely chop onion, cilantro, and jalapeño, then mix together. In a small bowl, combine the mixture with avocado, lime juice, salt, and then cover.
  3. In a small bowl, combine chipotle chiles, orange juice, and honey. Remove cans and top baking sheet from tofu and discard paper towels. Rub chile mixture on all sides of tofu.
  4. Heat a grill pan or grill on medium-high. Add tortillas and heat until warm and pliable, about 1 minute per side. Stack tortillas and wrap in foil.
  5. Mist grill pan with cooking spray or grease grill grate (still on medium-high). In a single layer, add tofu and grill until browned and heated through, 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a cutting board, then cut tofu into 2-inch strips and cover with foil.
  6. In a large bowl, toss bell pepper, mushroom, and onion slices with oil, salt, and black pepper. Add to grill pan or a grill basket (for outdoor grill) and cook on medium-high, tossing occasionally, until mushrooms are soft and peppers and onions are crisp-tender, about 5 minutes. Divide tofu and vegetables among tortillas and top with dollops of guacamole.
