Method

  • Preheat the oven to 160C. Drain the tofu, slice and press gently between two pieces of paper towel to remove the excess moisture.
  • Combine the cumin, oregano, paprika and chilli in a medium bowl. Crumble the tofu slices into the spice blend and stir to coat.
  • Wrap the tortillas in foil and pop into the oven to warm.
  • Heat half the extra virgin olive oil in a non-stick skillet over a medium-high heat. Add the onion and capsicum and sauté for 2 minutes. Add the remaining oil and the spiced tofu. Cook for 3 minutes until heated through. Season to taste with a little salt and pepper.
  • Divide the tofu mixture, lettuce, tomato and avocado across the tortillas. Top each with a dollop of yoghurt, serve with lime wedges and fresh coriander. Alternatively, pop everything in bowls in the middle of the table and each person makes up their own.
