Black Bean and cajan tofu tacos

Cajan tofu black bean tacos:

Sp these are made with just about the same things but instead of making meat I took tofu and squared it into half an inch cubes. Preheat the oven and 400 degrees. Than take cajan seasoning and roll them in it as much as you want. taking a non stick tray put the tofu on and back for about 20-30 minutes.

Than you can set it out and add whatever you want! I use black beans, alvacado, salsa and onion!

Health points:
Tofu: It will give the non-meat eater a plentiful supply of calcium ( which is derived from the calcium sulphate), as well as phosphorous and iron. Tofu is, therefore, an excellent substitute for meat in many vegetarian recipes.

Recent studies have also shown that Soya beans and products derived from them may play a role in preventing various types of cancer, particularly breast cancer. It has also been seen to have preventative capacity with regard to osteoporosis and symptoms related to menopause. An additional benefit of tofu is that it is extremely easy to digest. This is because the soya bean’s fiber is removed during the manufacturing process. Be careful though. Tofu should NOT replace meat in your diet as it is processed.
