Do you know where Taco Tuesday came from? In 1989, Taco Johns trademarked “Taco Tuesday” 1989. Originally, “Taco Twosday” was an advertisement for two tacos for 99 cents in the early 1980s. Since then, however, Taco Tuesday has become a national phenomenon. And with so many recipes for vegan tacos, I thought I should share my love for vegan tacos with you.
Regardless if you love soft tacos, hard tacos, corn tortillas, or flour tortillas, vegan tacos are a weekly treat at our house.
One of my favorite taco recipes is made with cauliflower and a simple taco seasoning, roasted in the oven. Served with Pickled Red Onions, microgreens, and Vegan Sour Cream, these handheld vegan tacos are simple to make and delicious.
Another family favorite is lentil taco meat made with brown lentils, onions, Rotel Tomatoes, jalapenos, and taco seasoning. Then, the tacos are topped with raw vegetables, microgreens with salsa.
Marinated with Baja citrus marinade, the tempeh is grilled and served with pineapple salsa. Topped with fresh slices of avocado on a be of lettuce in a flour tortilla.
Air-fired or baked, these vegan taquitos offer a choice of six different fillings. Topped with guacamole, salsa, and my favorite Vegan Southwest Dressing, these crunchy treats are a family favorite.
Forget about taco bell. Although not technically a taco, the Crunch Wrap Supreme is the ultimate grilled taco stuffed with beans, rice, vegetables, and vegan nacho cheese, grilled in a pan and eaten like a taco. I call this a fancy taco!
Sweet potato tacos with cilantro avocado coleslaw are so easy and cheap to make. If you are looking for a great taco recipe that rocks but doesn't break the bank, this sweet potato recipe is for you. One sweet potato makes 12 tacos with the help of a mandoline.
Potato Tacos? Yes! Fill a corn or flour tortilla with a savory Mexican potato filling, add refried beans and salsa and then grill it in a pan. Crispy and savory all in every bite.
Do you love roasted vegetables? Marinate vegetables and roast or grill them. Add vegan refried beans and lettuce for a quick and easy Taco Tuesday dinner.
A combination of mushrooms, walnuts, and spices makes this delicious chorizo meat. Topped with avocado cream and vegetables, and guacamole.
Of course, tacos aren't just for dinner, or Tuesday for that matter. Breakfast, however, is a perfect time for breakfast tacos. Full of spicy tofu scramble, black beans, salad, and avocado, these tacos are the breakfast of champions.
No matter how you like your tacos, these taco recipes are what vegan tacos are all about. So, make it a Taco Tuesday event. Put a little spice in your life.
