Ingredients

  • 1 ((one block)) extra-firm tofu, cut crosswise into 6 slabs
  • 1/4 cup dry white wine
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons mint, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons flat-leaf parsley, chopped
  • Salt
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • 1 yellow squash, thinly sliced lengthwise
  • 1 zucchini, thinly sliced lengthwise
  • 1 (small) red onion, cut into wedges
  • 1 red bell pepper, cored, seeded and cut into strips
  • 3 (small) tomatoes, halved
  • 6 flour tortillas, warmed
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons Smoky Eggplant-Ancho Spread

Preparation

  1. Arrange the tofu on a baking sheet and top with another baking sheet and several plates. Let stand for 1 hour to press out some of the excess water. Pat the tofu dry.
  2. In a bowl, combine the wine, olive oil, mint and parsley and season with salt and pepper. Add the squash, zucchini, onion, pepper, tomatoes and tofu; let stand for 5 minutes.
  3. Light a grill and oil the grates. Grill the vegetables in a grill basket over moderately high heat, turning occasionally, until tender, 10 minutes. Grill the tofu directly on the grates, turning, until charred all over, 8 minutes.
  4. Spread each tortilla with 1 tablespoon of the Eggplant-Ancho spread. Add the tofu and vegetables, fold up the tacos and serve.
