Easy And Healthy Vegan Tacos

A vegan taco that is extremely easy to make and extra hearty.

In making tacos, anything goes. And when I say anything goes, you can definitely go crazy in putting whatever you want to put in it. But if you are the fitness and health type and if you are vegan then being a bit picky on what to put is not a crime.

You can stay fit and healthy and still have a good tasting dish even if you are vegan. And this taco recipe is one of the best examples I could share with you. When I found the video online of these two awesome food lovers, I was thinking of doing right there and then while watching. I loved how smooth they were moving along in making the tacos while making it and how enticing it seemed.

And at the end of it all, I certainly did not regret trying it out. It as definitely an explosion of goodness in your mouth and I couldn’t even stop. You’ll feel the same way once you try it.

Check out the recipe below.

Perfect veggie ground round for tacos

Ingredients:

1 pkg meatless ground round

1 minced garlic clove and/or 1/2 C finely chopped onion

1 C chopped mushrooms (optional)

1 tbsp coconut oil (or grapeseed oil) for frying

1 tsp cumin

1 tsp chili powder

Instructions:

In a large pan heated to medium add oil, onion, and mushrooms and sauté for 2-3 mins until soft. If you’re not using onion or mushrooms, place oil in the pan with ground round first and add garlic with 2 mins of cook time left.

After onion and mushrooms have cooked for a couple of minutes then add meatless ground round, cumin, and chili powder and stir to combine. Sauté for another 5-7 mins to allow ground round to get heated through and brown up a bit. Add minced garlic with 1-2 mins left of cooking time. Mushrooms should be softened and ground round lightly browned.

If we had it already made in the fridge or we wanted to be a little more authentic and fancy, we would make cashew sour cream for our tacos. But if you’re whipping these up quick (or you’re lazy) you can make a zesty cilantro cream sauce with vegan mayonnaise.
