Procedure.

I lived in a Mexican family for a while and one of my favorite tacos where “al Pastor” here I will give you a vegan recipe to make them at home. So you can bring Mexico directly to your table. 

The first step is to prepare the soy. Fill a pot with water and place it on the stove. Consequently, pour the soy chunks, a piece of onion and a bay leaf and salt to taste. Let it boil for ten minutes. Drain the water, you can throw away the bay leaf and the onion. Then, squeeze the soy with your hands or a kitchen towel. Before that remember to let it cool down. 

Meanwhile in another pan bring to boil around two cups of water and immerse the chilies. Which theirs stems and seeds were previously removed. Boil them in the water for 10 minutes as well. 

Aside, cut another slice of onion. Place it in a mixer along with a garlic clove, and a slice of ananas chopped, a spoon of cumin, a spoon of oregano, a spoon of thyme, two cloves, a spoon of white vinegar, salt, the veggie stock I put the half of a cube. Then add the chilies and a ladle of the water they boiled in. Mix it together until homogenous. After that, pour it onto the soy chunks at let it marinate for one hour. 

Cut onion into cubes and fry them in a non-stick pan, until golden. Then add the marinated soy and all the sauce to the pan. Stir and cook for at least more than 20 minutes.

Then grab another pan where you will grill your pineapple in slices. A reminder: do not add this to any pizza. When both sides are crispy place it on a cutting board and cut in cubes.

Now, It’s time to heat up things. Place your tortillas on a pan, heat both sides. Then fill them with your al pastor soy, some grilled pineapple, few leaves of coriander.
