Vegan “Fish” Tacos with Creamy Avocado Sauce

This Vegan, Gluten-free, recipe is a great substitute for traditional fish tacos. They are easy to prepare and very fun to eat! Enjoy!


Tofu and marinade:

  • 1 block Extra firm tofu
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon Braggs liquid aminos or coconut aminos
  • 1/8 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 2 teaspoon salt-free taco seasoning
  • 1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • ¼ teaspoon chili powder
  • Juice of ½ lime

Cut tofu into rectangular “fish sticks” (about 2 inches) and then set aside. Mix all marinade ingredients in a glass pie pan or baking dish. Delicately place tofu in marinade and make sure each piece is well coated. Cover. Place in fridge for an hour and then carefully turn tofu so it gets the marinade evenly coated. Place in fridge for another hour.

Marinade Directions:

Creamy Avocado Sauce:

  • ½ Avocado
  • 2-3 tablespoons Ionized Alkaline Mineral Water
  • Juice of ½ lemon
  • Juice of ½ lime
  • ½ cup reduced fat Vegenaise (or regular)
  • Dash of sea salt
  • Couple dashes of pepper
  • Dash of Cayenne pepper
  • 1 garlic clove, minced

Sauce directions:

Blend all ingredients in a blender until smooth. Add more ionized alkaline mineral water if you want a thinner sauce.

Other ingredients and Toppings:
  • Mini Corn tortillas – I use gluten-free tortillas
  • Shredded white cabbage
  • Chopped tomato
  • Cilantro
  • Avocado chunks


Directions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place tofu oven for 30 minutes. Heat tortillas in toaster oven for a crisp taco or in a non-stick pan on the stove top for a soft taco. Place two tofu strips on the bottom of a tortilla, top with sauce and other preferred toppings and enjoy. They are delicious.

Note:  The tortillas are a new product from a great company called Mi Rancho. They are based in Northern California and I recently had the pleasure of meeting some of their staff at a health expo in Southern California (Expo West).  They will be coming out with a tortilla chip next year!  I love them because they come in the mini size which is perfect for this recipe. They are so moist and tasty!  I hear they are also available in mainstream grocery stores so be on the lookout for Mi Rancho corn tortillas!
