Notes

Cook’s Tips

  • These vegan tacos are best consumed fresh but can be stored in the fridge for about 2 days. Better store the ingredients separately in airtight containers. Eat warm or cold.
  • Make them ahead by chopping all the ingredients that need to be chopped. That way you can assemble them right before serving that will save you time.

Recipe Variations

  • Use corn tortillas instead of whole wheat tortillas.
  • You can substitute guacamole for avocados, chipotle corn salsa or canned (frozen and thawed) corn for grilled corn and fresh tomato salsa for cherry tomatoes. If you are doing that, you won’t need extra red onions for toppings.
  • Add vegan protein from the options suggested above.
  • Customize your vegan tacos with your favorite veggies, leftovers like roasted mushrooms or tofu, vegan cheese, etc.
MAKE IT GLUTEN FREE: Be sure to use gluten-free corn or quinoa tortillas.
MAKE IT VEGETARIAN: Add crumbled feta or grated cheddar cheese.
MAKE IT QUICK: Prepare all the ingredients ahead of time and assemble before serving.
