These Sriracha Tofu Tacos use Trader Joe’s Baked Sriracha Tofu for a quick vegan meal! The tofu is quickly sautéed and piled onto corn tortillas with cabbage, avocado, and salsa for a deliciously filling high-protein plant-based dinner. Ready in 15 minutes!


  • 12 tablespoons olive or avocado oil
  • 1 package Baked Sriracha Tofu from Trader Joe’s (see Notes if you don’t have access to this)
  • 4 corn tortillas
  • About 1 cup shredded cabbage, tossed with lime juice & salt to taste
  • 1 small ripe avocado, sliced
  • Salsa, I used Trader Joe’s Salsa de Cacahuate
  • Cilantro & lime, to taste


  1. Remove the tofu from the packaging. Cut the tofu in half once lengthwise, and then cut into cubes.
  2. Heat the oil in a pan over medium heat. Once hot, add the tofu and cook for about 3 to 5 minutes, until warmed through and golden on a few sides.
  3. If desired, warm each of the corn tortillas over the stovetop, either right on the gas (my preference) or in a pan until softened.
  4. Fill your warm tortillas with 1/4 of the tofu, a small handful of cabbage, a drizzle of salsa, and a few avocado slices. Add cilantro and lime to taste.
  5. Serve immediately and enjoy!
  6. If you have any leftovers, store in separate containers in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.


How to make sriracha baked tofu: cut one block of extra-firm tofu (drained and dried) into cubes, about 1″. In a mixing bowl, stir it with 2 tablespoons of sriracha hot sauce and 1 teaspoon of oil. Spread on a lined baking sheet with the cubes not touching each other and bake at 425°F for 10 minutes. Flip, and bake for another 10 minutes or until crispy on the outside. Remove from the oven and assemble your tacos!
