Crumbled extra-firm tofu is a great stand-in for ground beef for a meatless meal. This vegan substitute is perfect in lasagna, tacos, soup and more. We boost the flavor with garlic powder, paprika and tamari, but feel free to add your own flavorings.

Good meat alternative to use with tostadas, tacos and such. Used taco seasoning from Pensey's along with garlic powder. Did not use paprika.
