Cajun Tofu Tacos with Lettuce Wraps

Cajun Tofu Tacos with lettuce wraps! Yes, you heard that right. Just when you thought tofu was boring and only good for rice dishes and stir-fries, today we are making tofu even more fun with tacos.

The great thing about tofu is that it absorbs flavors very well so you can season it to your liking. We are going bold with Cajun spice because of its delicious flavor profile. Using Romaine lettuce leaves instead of flour tortillas is another twist to this recipe that is perfect for spring and summer lunches. 

Cajun Tofu Tacos with lettuce wrapsThe key to great tofu dishes is good quality tofu. There are so many brands to choose from these days so it is easy to find one you like. One of my favorite tofu brands is Mori-Nu Silken Tofu. Their tofu is sold in a unique aseptic package that protects the tofu from light and bacteria which gives it a long shelf life without refrigeration and preservatives, which is absolutely awesome. This is especially great if you use large amounts of tofu and don’t want to go to the grocery store regularly to restock. I bought 12 boxes and stored them in the pantry. It has been so convenient.

Cajun Tofu Tacos with lettuce wraps recipe: 

The idea to make Cajun-spiced tofu tacos came about after I ate some Cajun-spiced fries that were super delicious. I thought to myself, if Cajun spice can make these simple fries taste amazing, I bet it would make tofu even more amazing. Boy, was I right! The tofu absorbed the Cajun flavor and tasted fantastic. I later found out that others had already tried this combo and it wasn’t my great invention. Nevertheless this recipe has become a regular in our home and is a true winner. 

This Cajun Tofu Tacos with lettuce wraps recipe is very easy and quick to make. All you need is tofu, Cajun spice, olive oil, salt and lettuce. To add another level of flavor, I added a simple homemade salsa to the tacos. So simple yet so delicious.
