Tofu drenched in red chili sauce, and topped with vegan cheese, tomatoes, lettuce, and black olives.These tacos make a great summer dinner!

Sometimes I need something quick and easy for dinner. Tofu tacos come under that category. I only have to cook one thing, tofu in chili sauce, and then chop up the rest of the ingredients, put them in bowls, set it on the table, and let the FOO at it. Serve with Spanish Rice and Beans, and you’ve got a great low fat, healthy version of Taco Dinner Night!
