VEGAN TACOS 3 WAYS

VEGAN TACOS 3 WAYS

It’s #TacoTuesday and I’m craving these vegan tacos 3 ways! It’s so hard to pick between avocado tofu scramble breakfast tacos, soyrizo mexican slaw, or seitan black bean mango… but honestly, the macros are so good you don’t have to! Enjoy one of each and get a hearty dose of plant-based protein with flavor party included 🙂 You might also like my Healthy Pork Carnitas & Mexican Slaw Tacos!

Did you know? Seitan is produced by kneading wheat flour and rinsing with water to leave behind only the gluten protein. So yes, seitan is almost entirely wheat gluten, but it is still a nutritious food that is high in protein and minerals while low in carbs and fat. If you tolerate gluten, it’s an excellent source of plant-based protein! (source)

Avocado Tofu Scramble Breakfast Tacos

For the avocado tofu scramble breakfast tacos, I made an easy scramble using organic extra firm tofu, nutritional yeast, garlic powder, turmeric, and sea salt. I’ve made tofu scrambles a bunch of ways but always come back to this one! It’s so simple and GOOD!!! Add some sautéed kale, peppers, fresh avocado and hot sauce, and you got yourself one bomb breakfast.

Soyrizo & Mexican Slaw Tacos

For the soyrizo mexican slaw tacos, I used MorningStar chorizo crumbles along with some fat free refried beans for extra protein. The slaw is just dry coleslaw mix, lime juice, jalapeño, calorie-free sweetener, and salt. Top it all off with fresh cilantro and green onions (YUMM).

Seitan Black Bean Mango Tacos

For the seitan mango black bean tacos, I used WestSoy seitan strips cooked with low-sodium taco seasoning and canned black beans. I topped them off with a little heat from jalapeños and sweet mango chunks. The easy vegan queso is made with nutritional yeast, avocado oil (any oil will add richness), cornstarch (can use tapioca), cashew milk (any non-dairy milk works), smoked paprika and sea salt. Seriously the best vegan “cheesy” sauce!

Here are the printable recipes for these vegan tacos 3 ways! I hope you’ll rate and comment below if you try them 🙂

Muffins are always a good idea for breakfast – especially if they’re these Banana Collagen Protein Muffins! These muffins are low sugar, high-protein, and taste like banana heaven. I had to eat as many as I could before the hubby got them all (he was pretty mad about it too). You can make these muffins low fat using unsweetened applesauce, or use buttery spread and walnuts like I did for a more decadent version.
