Everyone will love these super simple Tofu and quinoa Tacos!


Units Scale
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • ~8 ounces of tofu (about half of a 15 ounce block of tofu)
  • 1 cup of cooked quinoa
  • 1/2 cup of chopped sweet onion
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1 teaspoon of chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon of onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon of garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon of paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon of crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 teaspoon of oregano
  • 1 teaspoon of cumin
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Pat the tofu dry (no need to press it*) and crumble it into small bite sized pieces.
  2. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add in the onion and garlic and sautee for 5 minutes until the onion becomes translucent.
  3. Add in the quinoa, tofu crumbles, and spices. Stir and continue to cook for 5 minutes until completely heated through.
  4. Enjoy with you favorite taco dishes!


*Cooking it in the skillet really does a great job of steaming the excess moisture out of the tofu but feel free to press it a little if you’d like!
