Vegan Taco Recipes You’ll Love

Tis the season for get togethers with family sharing some of your favorite winter comfort foods. I know it’s only October, but as the nights get cooler, it will soon be time to light the fireplaces and grab your favorite cocoa.

As we head into the busy season, I’d love to share some of my favorite food. It’s no secret that tacos are my absolute favorite. What I love most is the ability to create literally any dish you want.

In September I went meatless, since I didn’t want to stop our normal Taco Tuesday, I decided to create a variety of vegan tacos for the month. I can admit it took the kids a little bit before they got used to them, but by the second week they were eating them up!

Ingredients 

  • Spinach Tortilla Wraps
  • 1/2 Red Onion
  • Roasted Butternut Squash
  • 1/2 Yellow and Red Pepper
  • 1 can Black Beans
  • Cilantro
  • Tofu Quinoa Taco Meat*

Tofu Quinoa Taco Meat Recipe

  • 1/2 cup quinoa, cooked according to package directions
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 block firm tofu, ground
  • 1 1/2 tsp. cumin
  • 1  1/2 tsp. chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp. oregano
  • 3/4 tsp.  garlic
  • 1 and 1/4 tsp. smoked paprika
  • salt + pepper

    Directions

    Add olive oil to a medium skillet over medium heat. Once hot, add quinoa and tofu, and mix to combine. Add cumin, chili powder, oregano, garlic, paprika, and salt + pepper, and mix to combine.

    Allow mixture to cook until slightly caramelized, 5-7 minute. Be careful the mixture doesn’t burn. Taste, and adjust seasoning if necessary.

    • 1 lime fresh squeezed
    • 1 tablespoon olive oil
    • 1/4 cup greek yogurt

    Remove the skin and pit from the avocado. Put the avocado flesh, cilantro, minced garlic, lime juice, olive oil and greek yogurt into a food processor, small chopper or blender.

    Add a tablespoon of water at a time until you reach the desired consistency. I used 1/4 cup water.
    Salt and pepper to taste.
