To prepare the 'taco meat' - Add the garlic, onion, olive oil, tamari and spices to a small mixing bowl. Stir to combine. Use your hands to crumble the tofu into the mixing bowl, breaking it off in small pieces and mashing slightly between your fingers. Use a spoon to mix everything, stirring until evenly coated in the spices.



Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add 1 tbsp. olive oil to the pan and once hot, add the tofu mixture. Sauté 3 - 5 minutes, until the tofu is golden brown. Stir occasionally.


Add the remaining 'taco meat' ingredients into the pan - black beans, tomato, and nutritional yeast. Stir well. Cook an additional 3 - 5 minutes, or until the tomatoes have softened and the beans are heated through. Set aside when it's done cooking.



To assemble the salad - Prepare the remaining ingredients for your taco salad, divide evenly among bowls. Slice avocado, chop fresh herbs, etc.


Prepare your sweet & spicy tomato chutney for a delicious dressing.
