RECIPE: Ultimate Cabbage Taco by The Veggie Wifey

For this recipe, Divya Butani of The Veggie Wifey uses savoy cabbage to replace taco shells/tortillas, creating this fusion Korean Mexican dish. There are 3 separate parts to creating this, but don’t let that fool youit only takes about 20 minutes overall to complete. 

Bon appetit!

 

Spicy (Gochujang) Tofu 

 

Ingredients:

Method:

  1. In a heated pan, add the tofu, gochujang and water. Fry for a few mins.
