    Steps

    Preheat oven to 180C Fan/400F. Next, prepare your sauce by mixing the spices, oil and soy together in a small bowl.

    Follow by lining baking baking tray with parchment paper. Then take patted dry tofu and squeeze it between your fingers over tray until you get crumbles falling over the tray. Pour sauce over crumbles and mix around with your hands. (Yes it gets messy but at least it means less dishes for you too!)

    Put tray in oven and set timer for 20 minutes. While the tofu taco meat is cooking, you can prepare your salad by washing and chopping lettuce and getting any extras ready too.

    After 20 minutes, take tray out of oven and mix around tofu taco meat. Put back in oven for an additional 10 to 15 minutes, depending on how crispy you like it!

    Once tofu taco is done, load up into your salad bowls and put as many toppings as you like! Aproveite this blast of flavour!!!
