Awesome Vegan Tacos

I am definitely one of those people that could potentially eat tacos every day. Unfortunately, my family likes variety so that doesn’t happen, but I do slip them in every week for sure! I like to try different taco recipes to switch it up, I have been working on these awesome vegan tacos for a while now. I feel like they are finally up to blog-worthy status to share with you awesome folks.

What I like about these tacos is that they have a lot of different flavors going on. You have the soy curls that bring their own flair, then the black bean and corn salsa and of course the avocado dressing! yum!

The ingredient list looks intense but rest assured it actually comes together fairly quickly.

I like to give all these lovely ingredients time to marinate so I typically will make this in the morning or early afternoon. So when it comes to dinner time I am only cooking the soy curls, but the main mess is over with in the morning.

My 9-year-old LOVES this recipe, this is hands down his favorite. I can’t blame him, it’s pretty tasty and I may or may not have been sneaking bites of crispy soy curls.

What do you need for these amazing vegan tacos?

*Don’t be alarmed by this LONG list, it’s mostly spices.

  • Butler soy curls
  • lime juice, fresh
  • oil
  • sugar
  • salt
  • chili powder
  • paprika
  • onion powder
  • garlic powder
  • cumin
  • coriander
  • black pepper
  • corn
  • black beans
  • Kite Hill plain vegan yogurt
  • avocado
  • 1/4 cup cilantro
  • Corn tortillas

How do you make them?

Take a medium bowl and place your dried soy curls in it.  Take hot water and pour over the soy curls and let sit for 10 minutes. 

While the soy curls are rehydrating make your sauce. Take all the “taco” ingredients minus the soy curls and combine, set aside.

After the 10 minutes is up strain the soy curls.  This is the most important part squeeze all the liquid you can out of the soy curls.  I usually use my clean hands for this, then place the soy curls in a clean bowl. 

Now take the sauce and combine it with the soy curls until they are all coated.  Cover and place in the fridge preferably for a few hours.

While the soy curls are marinating make your Avocado sauce. Take a small blender or food processor and combine all the sauce ingredients until smooth.  Let this sit in the fridge and marinate as well.

Now make your salsa.  Combine all ingredients and stir. Place in fridge.

After a few hours, it’s time to start cooking.  Take a medium pan and spray with cooking spray.  Cook the soy curls on medium heat stirring, for about 10 minutes until they start to get a little crispy. Remove from heat and set aside.

Start assembling the tacos.  Take a warmed tortilla and place the soy curls, salsa, and avocado sauce and serve. You can add chopped onions, or cilantro if desired.

You could serve with a side of Mexican rice, taco salad, or just some vegetables.

I was wondering if you ever considered changing the layout of your website? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?
