Best Vegan Tacos Recipe
"How to make vegan tacos that taste better than their meat-loaded peers. 1. You can make vegan tacos with any roasted or grilled veggies. One of the reasons why I call it the best vegan tacos recipe is flexibility. You are not bound to one or two ingredients which you might not even like that much. You can choose your favorite veggies, and here are the ones that fit best: Sweet Potatoes Carrots Broccoli Butternut Squash Brussels sprouts Mushrooms The trick is to cut them into bite-sized pieces and season generously. 2. If you can, make the vegan tacos with fresh tortillas. I can’t stress this enough. Fresh tortillas are much better than store-bought. You can warm them in the microwaves or in the oven until they are easily foldable. Then stuff them with your favorite veggies, but don’t overdo it because they will scatter all over the place and get messy when you’ll eat the meatless tacos. 3. It’s not a taco without salsa If you want to make the best vegan tacos, you need to top them with a delicious homemade salsa. This is very easy to make and you have plenty of options to choose from. Here are the ones I like best: Tomato salsa, also known in Mexican cuisine as Picco de Gallo. It’s made of fresh tomatoes, onion, jalapenos, coriander, a squeeze of fresh lime and a few drops of olive oil. Green salsa dip. This one is almost the same as the above. The only difference is that you need to use tomatillos instead of tomatoes. Everything else stays the same. Fruity salsa (my favorite). This one has a sweet citric flavor and the best fruits to use are mango, pineapple, kiwi, peach, and avocado. And if you really want to make the best vegan tacos recipe you need to add guacamole. This one is easy to make as well and such a great flavor booster. All you need is ripe avocados, salt and a bit of lemon juice to help balance the taste. Easy, right? Of course, you can add more ingredients if you want, like chopped cilantro, chiles, onions or tomatoes. These will certainly be an improvement but if you don’t want to spend much time on it, just stick with the first version as you can’t go wrong."
