The traditional Mexican taco gets a vegetarian and plant based twist! The authentic tacos most often are filled with meat and cheese. But, we are going to pack these up with a bunch of roasted vegetables. Sky is the limit to your imagination! It's protein rich with black beans and sautéed Tofu.


I prefer using small soft corn tacos, instead of the ones made with regular flour. They taste better, gluten-free and healthy too so why not! You can pick up some mini street tacos if you are planning to serve these as an appetizer or a snack.


Key ingredients are just tacos, vegetables, tofu and black beans. Start with the recipe below and tweak it as you go along. You can just use strained canned black beans as is but I like to make a little vegan chilli out of it by sautéing it with chopped tomatoes and taco seasoning.
