Taco Tuesday - VEGAN STYLE!
Hey all! Have another deliciously fun vegan recipe for you to give a try. Tacos are fun to make, and the entire family can have a say in which ingredients they want to add. While there are many vegan ground beef alternatives on the market, many of which would be delicious with this recipe, we fired up the grill for this one using one of my favorite vegan proteins - tofu! But, probably my favorite part of tacos, and practically all plant-based recipes, is how colorful your final dish will turn out.
First, start by slicing tofu thin enough to get cooked all the way through, but not too thin that the pieces cannot be placed and maneuvered on the grill (I like mine a bit crunchy!). Drizzle with olive oil, salt, and pepper, or any of your favorite seasoning such as Adobo, and grill.
|Use caution when grilling corn with husks directly on grill. Wrap in aluminum foil for safety!
At the same time, get your corn on the cob ready for some grilling. Peel back the husks and lather on some butter (or vegan butter alternative), and sprinkle with some salt and pepper. Pull husks back over the corn and grill directly on the barbeque turning occasionally. When finished and slightly cooled off, cut the grilled corn off the cob to make one of the best taco toppings.
To add more color, chop up your favorite veggies (and fruit!).
Orange pepper, scallions, red onions, multi-colored grape tomatoes, fresh ginger, and fresh MANGO! These toppings can be kept raw or sauteed slightly - whichever you prefer. And, don't forget the shredded vegan cheese.
Grab your favorite soft or hard, corn or flour, tortilla and start creating. You may wish to warm tortillas or shells in oven or on the stovetop. Finish off your masterpiece with a dollop of guacamole and a side of grilled asparagus.
Fun to make and eat for the entire family. Bon Appetit.
Finding tasty vegan or vegetarian alternatives is getting easier and easier, and I love hearing from people who give these options a try - even if just for "Meatless Monday."
Have a good topping suggestion for me? Please let me know in the comments section.
