A Vegan Version Of Carne Asada Tacos
Yesterday my mother jokingly said I have tacos every night and will make anything a taco. She is actually right, when it comes to tacos I can never say no. I don't know what it is about wrapping food in a tortilla that makes it so much better. Either way I will probably have many more different types of taco recipes coming soon.
Carne Aasada tacos are one of the most popular street tacos you will normally see. It's usually offered on every food truck that makes spanish influenced food. I of course do not eat meat but have a fun time making those meat recipes vegan. Street tacos are one of my favorite style of taco to make because they don't call for many ingredients. Check below and I will tell you how to make these delicious and surprisingly simple tacos for dinner.
Recipe Feeds Four:
What you need:
4 of your favorite vegan burgers (I suggest ones that aren't flavored) I used Simple Choice
1/4 chopped onion red or white
1/4 cup of freshly chopped cilantro
1/2 Cup of brown rice
2 cups of vegetable broth
15 oz of pinto beans
1 lime chopped into 8 pieces
hot sauce of your choice
1 tablespoon of soy sauce
2 garlic cloves chopped
Turmeric, Cumin, and Garlic salt to season the rice and beans
Handful of vegan cheese (optional)
How to Make:
Take the veggie patties and place them on a griddle and allow them to cook, once they begin to brown start chopping them up into little pieces like ground beef. Add the garlic and soy sauce to the griddle and sauté with the veggie patties.
Chop the onion into little pieces and mix in the chopped cilantro and mix in a bowl together.
Boil the vegetable broth and then add the rice. Once the rice is cooked add a dash of garlic salt, Cumin and Turmeric.
Put the beans in a pot and add a dash of Cumin and Turmeric as they begin to cook/warm.
Once the veggie meat is browned and cooked you can begin to plate the tacos. Simply put the cilantro/onion mixture on top of the now crumbled meat inside of a warmed corn tortilla. Next you can add a sprinkle of vegan cheese, squeeze a chopped lime, and pour on your favorite hot sauce and enjoy with a side of beans and rice.
I like to put Tapatío on my tacos and also some freshly chopped jalapeño because I like my food extra spicy.
I hope you enjoy these easy to make tacos and remember you can always sub the veggie burgers with fish, Portobello mushrooms or my favorite jack fruit.
