    Made these tonight and they were excellent with a few modifications. My first batch that I tried to fry in 1t. of oil as the recipe suggested just soaked up the little bit of oil in the pan and didn't cook well at all. After that I added enough oil to the pan for it to be about 1/4 inch deep and I basically deep fried the tofu and turned it once to get them nice and golden brown. I also added a little cilantro to the slaw and sliced avacado to the taco. Will definitely be making again.

    It definitely took me longer than the 25 minutes to make this the first time around; however, the extra effort was worth it! It got the seal of approval from a "non-tofu" eater, and the leftovers the next day held up well.

    Overall they were good. the flavor profile was unique and paired well together. The only feedback i got was that the corn tortillas were too dry of a choice for the taco. Also i added a bit of hoisin sauce to the final product - may not be light but it needed that zip to it. Definitely a repeat.

    Peanut Crusted Tofu Tacos with Tangy Slaw makes traditional Mexican tacos second rate! These were easy to make, and the taste was unbelievable. The peanut crust on the tofu really changes the taste of the tofu and makes it barely noticeable to the new tofu eater. I’d also suggest using a tofu press like one from TofuXpress. It made the preparation super easy.

    If I'd had two other people helping me then I could have had this ready on the table in 25 minutes. It took me more like an hour-but only because there were multiple steps that could have all been done at the same time. This was pretty good. Will make again. I ran out of panko/peanut dip before I ran out of tofu, but that's ok. This was definitely easy, but also really messy.

    These were outstanding, but WAY to much work to ever make again.
