Easy, Delicious Vegan Taco Ideas

Andrea Banerjee

I eat tacos for dinner just about every week. They are one of my absolute favourite foods and make a fun plant-based option that stills feels like a fiesta!

While tacos are a go-to restaurant menu item for me, I think they taste just as good made at home, as long as you get creative and invest in some fresh ingredients. Here is a plate that I made myself this week,  with my random taco toppings recorded for you!

Taco #1: The Old Classic 

Before I start going crazy with ingredients, I need to eat at least one traditional taco with my favourite stand-by ingredients! I never tire of beans and salsa, so they take centre stage in this mix.

Ingredients:

  • refried beans
  • black beans (I like to sautee mine with a little olive oil and chilli seasoning if I have time)
  • taco seasoning
  • chunky tomato salsa
  • smashed avocado
  • I would normally include some fresh cilantro, but I had none on hand 😦

Taco #2: The Mixed Bag

This was a total jumble of ingredients I had in the fridge and it was amaaaaazing! Trust your flavour combos – you might create a masterpiece!

Ingredients:

  • IMG_2074shredded cabbage (hidden under bean mountain, sorry)
  • refried beans
  • diced tomatoes
  • roasted red pepper hummus
  • smashed avocado
  • chipotle hot sauce

 

 

Taco #3: Radish-ulous

I think this was my favourite. I’ve been snacking on radishes all week and they make the most satisfying crunchy, flavourful addition to a taco. When sliced paper thin, I find they’re a nice complementary taste that makes a great alternative to powerful red onion.

  • radishes, thinly sliced
  • paprika
  • black pepper
  • green onion, diced
  • smashed avocado
  • this would be delicious with yellow corn too! I had none, unfortunately
