Following our series of posts to provide you with recipes and options to enjoy the summer, we wanted to expand and offer you more options other than Mexican BBQ recipes for the summer. Looking at one of our favourite options for Mexican food, tacos (no surprise there!), we want to take the opportunity to highlight that their versatility knows no bounds. If you follow a vegan lifestyle, you’ll be thrilled to know that you can still enjoy the mouthwatering magic of tacos without compromising your dietary choices.
Our team has curated a list of seven amazing vegan taco recipes perfect for enjoying the summer and leaving you craving more. Get ready to embark on a culinary journey and discover some of the most exciting options for vegan tacos with the following recipes.
- Delicious Spicy Cauliflower Tacos: These zesty tacos combine the robust flavours of cauliflower, spices, and some tangy toppings. Roasted cauliflower florets tossed in a mix of chilli powder, paprika, and cummin as an option will deliver a delightful kick. Serve them on warm Casa Bonita corn tortillas with pickled onions, a small amount of lime crema, plus some avocado for an exciting combination of flavours.
- Perfect BBQ Jackfruit Tacos on blue corn tortillas: Jackfruit is often known as one of the most exciting vegan meat substitutes and works just great for these smoky BBQ tacos. Jackfruit slow-cooked in a savoury barbecue sauce, the tender pieces of this fruit resemble the texture of pulled pork. Load your Casa Bonita Blue Corn Tortillas with saucy jackfruit, crisp slaw, and a dollop of vegan mayo.
- A fantastic combo of Sweet Potato & Black Bean Tacos: Bring together the earthy goodness of black beans and the natural sweetness of roasted sweet potatoes in these tasty tacos. Mash the black beans with spices like cumin and chilli powder (or just season with Tajin!), then layer them onto white corn tortillas with roasted sweet potato cubes, fresh Casa Bonita Roasted Chipotle Salsa, and a sprinkle of cilantro. We guarantee that the contrasting flavours and textures will leave you craving more.
- Authentic Baja-style Mushroom Tacos: With their meaty texture and umami flavour, mushrooms are a great choice for vegan tacos. Sautée the mushrooms with garlic, onions, and a splash of lime juice. By doing that, the mushrooms take on an irresistible taste. Fill your tortillas with these savoury mushrooms, crunchy cabbage, sliced radishes, and a drizzle of chipotle sauce for a Baja-inspired delight.
- Captivating Tofu and Black Bean Tacos: Tofu is a versatile ingredient for taco creations. Crumble firm tofu and sauté it with black beans, onions, and a blend of spices like cumin and smoked paprika (try Tajin Habanero for a completely different twist). Wrap the flavorful mixture in tortillas and top it off with avocado, fresh pico de gallo, and a squeeze of lime for a protein-packed taco extravaganza.
- Tasty Lentil and Walnut Tacos: Embrace the hearty combination of lentils and walnuts in these delicious tacos. Simmer lentils with aromatic herbs and spices, then add in finely chopped walnuts for a delightful crunch. Load your white corn Casa Bonita Tortillas with the lentil-walnut mixture, sliced tomatoes, shredded lettuce, and a drizzle of creamy tahini sauce for a nutritious meal.
- Wonderful Chickpea and Spinach Tacos: These protein-rich tacos are a delightful blend of chickpeas and sautéed spinach. Combine chickpeas with spices like turmeric, cumin, and coriander, then fold in wilted spinach for added nutritional value and flavour. Serve the flavorful mixture in warm tortillas with a sprinkle of vegan cheese, fresh cilantro, and a squeeze of lemon for a wholesome taco experience.
