Sun Basket is proud to source the organic ingredients indicated below. On the rare occasion we are unable to meet our organic promise, we'll put a note in your bag.
  • 10 ounces Hodo organic firm tofu
  • Sun Basket mole poblano blend (ancho chile powder - sesame seeds - granulated garlic - coconut sugar - cocoa powder - sweet smoked paprika - cinnamon)
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 1 organic Gala or other apple
  • 1 organic lime
  • 4 or 5 sprigs organic fresh cilantro
  • 2 or 3 organic radishes (about 2 ounces total)
  • 8 Mi Rancho 100% corn tortillas
  • ¼ cup organic Greek yogurt

Chef's Tip

You can turn your remaining tortillas into chips: Heat the oven to 350°F. Cut the tortillas into wedges. On a sheet pan, drizzle the wedges with 1 to 2 teaspoons neutral oil, season with salt, if desired, and pepper, and toss to coat. Bake until crisp, 10 to 12 minutes.

Make It Ahead
The tofu (Step 1) can be prepared up to 1 day ahead. Let cool, then cover and refrigerate overnight. When ready to serve, gently rewarm the tofu, adding 1 tablespoon water to thin the sauce if needed, as you proceed with the rest of the recipe (Steps 2 and 3).

2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Cook the tofu

  • In a medium bowl, crumble the tofu into ½-inch pieces. Add the mole poblano blend and tomato paste and stir to combine.
In a large frying pan over medium heat, warm 2 to 3 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the tofu, season with salt, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the tomato paste starts to caramelize, 2 to 3 minutes. Add 1 cup [2 cups] water, bring to a simmer, and cook, stirring occasionally, until thickened slightly, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and season with salt and pepper.
While the tofu cooks, prepare the apple salad and garnishes.


Prep the apple salad and garnishes

  • Core and cut the apple into ¼-inch-thick slices.
  • Juice half the lime; cut half into wedges for garnish. [Juice 1 lime; cut 1 lime into wedges.]
  • Coarsely chop the cilantro. Set aside half for garnish.
  • Cut the radishes in half, then cut the halves into thin half-moons for garnish.
In a medium bowl, toss together the apple, 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] lime juice, and half the cilantro. Season with salt and pepper.


Warm the tortillas

  • Remove 6 [12] tortillas from the package; save the rest for another use.
On the stovetop directly over a flame, or in a dry medium frying pan over medium heat, warm the 6 [12] tortillas, turning once, until just pliable and warmed through, about 30 seconds per side. Transfer to a clean kitchen towel, cover, and keep warm.


Transfer the tortillas to individual plates and top with the tofu and radishes. Dollop with the yogurt, garnish with the remaining cilantro, and serve with the apple salad and lime wedges.
