Fried Yuba Tacos with Sweet Corn Relish
In this recipe, Chef Bryant Terry fries rolled yuba, or thin sheets of tofu skin, in avocado oil until crispy, yielding a hearty vegan taco filling. Diaspora Co.'s single-origin turmeric lends its zesty, deeply floral flavor to the summery corn relish that tops these tacos. Diaspora Co. is one in a rising tide of small spice companies delivering better-tasting spices while supporting small, independent farmers. A spoonful of "green cream"—sautéed spinach stirred together with mashed avocado—holds all of the delicious components in place.
