Hi friends 🙂 This Tuesday recipe blog post is going to be a quick one (must get back to the kids at school – I work there, not to pick up my own) and then going to see my fella play tonight in his band “A Very Small Band”. Cannot wait to rock out…..wondering if the place has vegan options…….ok my mind is drifting….back to TACOS!
One of my quick and easy go to meals are TACOS!!!! Simple, delicious and they can be turned into a real protein powerhouse meal with the right ingredients!
STEP 1 – Gather your ingredients. 1 onion, 4 garlic cloves (or more if you love garlic), mock mince (or leave it out – up to you), a can of 4 bean mix, 1/2 cup of quinoa, a jar of taco sauce, ground cumin, coriander, lettuce and soy cheese of your choice.
STEP 2 – Whilst cooking your quinoa in a separate pot, sauté your onion, garlic and a dash of cumin and coriander until fragrant. Add mock mince, beans and quinoa and cook for about 5 minutes
STEP 3 – Add your taco sauce and more cumin and coriander to taste. Let simmer for 15 to 20 minutes. Prepare your chopped lettuce and grate your soy cheese (Please add any other toppings depending on what you like). Salt and pepper to taste.
STEP 4 – Heat up your shells at 200 degrees for 5 minutes in the oven and heat up your soft tacos for 30 seconds in the microwave. Add your toppings and there you have it!! Simple, delicious and full of protein. Oh and the meat eaters in your family will also LOVE THEM!! I promise! In fact don’t tell them they are vegan and watch their jaws open when your drop the bomb heheheheh 😉
Until next time, eat well, smile and be kind to animals 🙂
