 3 cups Yukon gold potatoes, peeled and cubed (or frozen oil-free cubed hash browns)
 1 tablespoon reduced sodium tamari (gluten-free soy) sauce
 2 teaspoons taco seasoning
 1 teaspoon all-purpose chili powder
 ½ teaspoon ground cumin
 1 teaspoon dried basil
 ½ teaspoon dried oregano
 1 ½ teaspoons ground turmeric
 1 teaspoon black salt
 8-10 ounces spinach, chopped

 12 corn or small flour tortillas

 1 large tomato, diced
 Shredded lettuce
 Salsa or pico de gallo
 Sour cream of your choice

 Dairy or vegan cheese

Press tofu between 2 plates with a heavy weight on the top plate. Drain and discard the liquid. Crumble or cube the tofu and toss with turmeric and black salt.


In a large non-stick skillet, place the diced onion and garlic over a medium-high heat. Cover skillet. Watch carefully. If veggies start to stick, add 1 tablespoon water or veggie broth. Stir and re-cover skillet. Cook, stirring often, until vegetables have softened and started to brown on the edges, about 5 minutes


Add soy chorizo, if using, and cook for 2 minutes, stirring often.


Add potatoes to skillet. Turn heat down to medium. Cook until potatoes are fork tender (about 10 minutes), stirring often. Add water as necessary, 1 tablespoon at a time.


Add tamari sauce, and remaining spices and herbs to the skillet. Stir well.


Add tofu to the skillet with the chopped spinach. Fold gently to combine. Cover and warm until the spinach wilts.


Taste and add more seasonings, if desired.


Place the tofu mixture in a covered casserole dish.


Set up a bar with the tofu mixture, tortillas, and optional toppings. Let everyone assemble their own tacos and enjoy!
