Operation Pull-Out Tacos

Three days ago, the US military officially fully withdrew from Iraq. The occupation has ended after nine years. The whole thing has been almost too stupid, too nightmarish to believe, and most Americans withdrew their emotional forces a long time ago. And I don't think we learned anything. I don't even have the sense we could, as a people, prevent our government from a repeat offense, if you'll allow me that understatement. I propose a national New Year's resolution: renounce cynical reason.

makes: approx. 10 tacos
prep. time: approx. 30 min.

1 lb. firm tofu
few collard leaves, torn into pieces
1 poblano pepper, diced
1 sweet potato, skinned and cubed
2 avocados
juice of 1/2 lemon
chili powder

1. Boil water for the potato. Cook until soft, drain.
2. Saute the tofu over medium-high heat. After it starts to stick, add the poblano pepper and shuffle with a spatula every couple of minutes. Season. When the tofu begins to brown, add the collards and cook until sort of wilted.
3. Fry tortillas in a pan over high heat.
4. Mash two avocados with lemon juice and salt.
5. Serve with salsa!
