VEGAN TOFU TIKKA TACOS

Shruti of @shruskitchen made these amazing tacos using our tortillas. So good! Scroll below for the recipe. 
"It is Cinco De Mayo and it is Taco Tuesday and here we are and yes I saw the meme that addresses the irony of this whole situation. But the show must go on and I bring to you something that I was sure wouldn’t work but works surprisingly well : Vegan Tofu Tikka Tacos (a dish that was basically created for this alliteration). I used coconut yogurt to marinate the tofu along with the usual tikka masala spices (red chili powder, garam masala, chaat masala, coriander powder, salt), before baking. Meanwhile I made a spicy cilantro dressing and a cashew-tikka dressing with more coconut yogurt. I grilled some poblano peppers from @imperfectfoods and heated up some grain-free wraps from @positivelyplantain. Threw in some boiled corn and chopped avocado for good measure before assembling these delicious hybrid tacos. Coconut yogurt is my new best friend, in case I didn’t make that clear already 🥥 .
