Instructions
  1. For the paneer (or tofu)  marination, mix all of the ingredients in a bowl and whisk together. Put in the pieces of paneer (or tofu) and set aside for 15-20 minutes. Overnight would work great too.

  2. Preheat the oven to 350.
  3. Blend all of the ingredients for the avocado crema in a food processor. Set aside in a separate bowl.

  4. Mix all of the ingredients for the slaw and set aside in a separate bowl.
  5. For the veggie filling, grill everything in a saucepan on high heat until the vegetables have browned and flavors are incorporated. Set aside in a bowl.
  6. Grill the paneer (or tofu) for 7-8 minutes in a baking tray. It should get a nice char on the outside. This step can also be done on the stove too with a pan. Either way, don’t dry out the paneer.

  7. Time to assemble! Grill the tortillas and add a layer of slaw. Then top it with the vegetables and pant, finally drizzling it with the crema. Garnish with some jalapeños, lime, radish, and feta!
