A note about serious food allergies

They said it couldn't be done. They said it was foolish to even try. They said our efforts would be best spent coming up with another meat-and-sauce combination. But did we listen to them? Hardly. We knew we could get tofu to taste just like smoky, rustic chorizo. And we knew we could fit tacos with that same tofu, top it with cheese and salsa, and make the most delicious vegetarian taco this side of the Rio Grande. Couldn't be done? Already done.
