Here, we tear the tofu instead of cutting it. That might sound odd, but it's the best way to get crisp, crumbly edges reminiscent of fish tacos. Coating with a flavorful cornstarch mixture helps maximize the crunch.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 450°F. Coat a large rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray.

  • Whisk 2 tablespoons lime juice, cornstarch, oil, 1 tablespoon adobo, 3/4 of the garlic, cumin and 3/4 teaspoon salt in a large bowl. Pat tofu dry, add to the bowl and toss to coat. Spread the tofu on the prepared baking sheet.

  • Bake, stirring halfway through, until golden brown, 20 to 25 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, mix sour cream and 1 tablespoon lime juice with the remaining 1/2 tablespoon adobo sauce, garlic and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a small bowl. Toss cabbage, cilantro and the remaining 2 tablespoons lime juice in a medium bowl.

  • Serve the tofu in tortillas with the slaw and sour cream mixture.
