Slice the pear (unpeeled) into thin strips. Finely chop the garlic (or use a garlic press). Cut the Japanese tofu into 1cm cubes. Cut the cucumber into thin strips. Thinly slice the long red chilli (if using). Grate the carrot (unpeeled).
In a medium bowl, combine the pear, shredded red cabbage and garlic aioli and toss to coat. Season to taste with salt and pepper and set aside. TIP: Preparing the slaw first allows the cabbage to soften slightly by the time you're ready to serve.
In a small bowl, combine the garlic, honey, soy sauce and mixed sesame seeds.
In a medium frying pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil over a medium-high heat. Add the tofu and cook, turning often, until browned, 2 minutes. Add the honey-soy glaze and cook until slightly sticky, 1-2 minutes.
While the tofu is cooking, heat the mini flour tortillas in a sandwich press, or on a plate in the microwave for 10 second bursts, until warmed through.
Take everything to the table. Build the tacos by topping the tortillas with slaw, cucumber, carrot and tofu. Drizzle with the Japanese dressing and sprinkle with chilli (if using) and crispy shallots.
