A note about serious food allergies

Tacos are a deceptively simple food; we think of them as hand-held goodies easily accessible from trucks or fast food. However simple they look, the flavors they hold can be as complex as any dish.  Crispy tofu forms the base here, topped with queso fresco, red cabbage doused in lime juice, and spicy Sriracha-mayo. Every bite forms its own complex flavor, delicious down to the last.
