Spinach and Dill Tofu Tacos
Dill makes these Tofu Tacos pop with unique flavor
If you love tacos, you will love this recipe. Granted, it may not be like the original beef, cheese and sour cream tacos, but trust me, you will love these. They are amazingly tasty, filling, fun to eat and best of all... healthy.
Now I won't lie, when I tell people about this recipe the majority of people look at me like I'm crazy, or come right out and ask my why I would want to ruin a taco with spinach. When I have them try one, they are amazed by not only how good it is, but that they actually love them and want more. This recipe came to me while I was sitting watching TV hungry, and oddly enough not hungry at all. It literally popped into my head like this: “Remember that tofu scramble you made? Wouldn't it be genius to make it with spinach and turn it in to a taco?” The next day I pulled out the stuff and went to work.
