Vegan Tacos

Vegan Tacos

Our Vegan Tacos are made with a mixture of cauliflower, walnuts and mushrooms to create the meaty part of the recipe. Grounded cauliflower and walnuts are used constantly at home to prepare vegan minced meat that we include in recipes like this amazing Vegan Bolognese. To make the taco meat, we added mushrooms to the mixture and got the perfect consistency and flavour.

Taco nights are a favourite at home. Our toddler Luca loves to try all the different ingredients that we prepare for our vegan tacos. Corn is one of his favourite foods at the moment so it is a must in our tacos.

Our Vegan Taco recipe is simple to prepare and it’s a simple and delicious option for a weekday dinner that the whole family will surely enjoy. Any plans for the next Taco Tuesday? This can be a perfect one!

How to prepare Vegan Taco Meat?

It’s really simple to prepare the cauliflower, walnut and mushroom mixture. All you need is a food processor and a baking tray.

  • Cut the cauliflower into big florets, slice the mushrooms and add together with the walnuts into a food processor.
  • For seasoning, add into the food processor soy sauce, cumin, black pepper, sweet paprika or smoked paprika, garlic powder, onion powder and salt. Pulse a couple of times until everything is completely combined and grounded.
  • Transfer the mixture into a baking tray. We place a silicone baking mat on our tray before adding the mixture so it doesn’t stick to the bottom (what a great discovery!). Drizzle some olive oil on the top and bake for about 20 minutes stirring the mixture halfway through.

Vegan Tacos ingredients suggestions

Here are a few ideas for ingredients that can be added into your tacos apart from the vegan meat mixture.

  • Fresh Tomato Salad. Simply chop some fresh tomatoes, add a little bit of olive oil, salt and finely chopped cilantro. This salad will give your tacos a fresh bite.
  • Avocado. Thinly slice some avocado and add into your tacos. It’s a creamy and healthy addition.
  • Corn. We love it so we add it in as many recipes as we can so in tacos are perfect!
  • Lettuce. Chopped lettuce will give a fresh crunch to your tacos.
  • Vegan Cheese Sauce. Top your tacos with some cheese sauce. Our vegan cheese sauce is made with pre-soaked cashews, nutritional yeast, smoked paprika, lemon juice, turmeric, garlic powder, maple syrup, water and salt. All ingredients combined into a blender and blended until smooth make a delicious dip that you won’t be able to stop eating.
  • Other ingredients. So many lovely ingredients that will go really good in your tacos such as black beans, cilantro, lime juice, thinly sliced onion, jalapenos, etc.
