Crunchy Tofu Tacos for a Healthy Snack

Yes, tofu is bland but when mixed with other ingredients, it becomes a great replacement for meat. Tofu taco is the perfect meal for veggie-lovers out there. It is also a great snack for children. I love making this recipe because it is not only easy but you can experiment and add some ingredients for a one-of-a-kind flavor.
