  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tsp chili powder blend
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3/4 tsp cumin
  • 3/4 tsp turmeric
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 cup diced fresh pineapple ( about 1/4 of a medium size pineapple)
  • 1 cup fresh cilantro, chopped (you can also use parsley)
  • 1 large tomato, diced small
  • 1 large Hass avocado, diced
  • Juice of 1 lime

  • For the pickled onions:
  • 1 large red onion, sliced thin
  • 1 cup of warm water
  • 6 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp sugar


  1. Preheat the oven to 375F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper
  2. Pat dry the tofu with some paper towels and dice it into bite size pieces. Transfer it to a large bowl, add the oil, chili powder, salt, cumin, turmeric, onion and garlic powder and toss gently, until the tofu is well coated. Transfer to the lined baking sheet, and bake for 25 minutes
  3. In the meantime, prepare the pickled onions. Place the sliced onions in a medium bowl. Combine the warm water, red wine vinegar, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon sugar in a separate bowl, mix well and pour over the onions. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use
  4. Combine the diced pineapple, cilantro, tomato, avocado, lime juice and salt in a large bowl. Toss gently and refrigerate until ready to use
  5. To assemble the tacos, scoop some of the pineapple salsa on a tortilla. Top with tofu and onions and serve immediately
