I don’t eat tacos’s very often however this easy vegan recipe came out so good. I managed to fit a protein,vegetable and starch into one meal while keeping it low oil.
Let’s start with the shell.I didn’t want to purchase just any brand of tortilla because some store brought ones have so many bad ingredients in them. I came across a brand that was made out of corn,water and lime.
Preparing tortillas for your recipe takes some practice however you simply need to heat up one tablespoon of oil in a frying pan and then fry the tortilla on both sides. Then wrap the tortillas in a clean dish towel. This will keep them warm and pliable. The last thing you need is dry,hard tortillas.
I also went ahead and used dried chickpeas for this recipe instead of the ones in the can. It took a little more time but you get so much more for around the same price.
This vegan recipe is filling and delicious, great for sharing with friends and it’s very kid friendly.
I used two all natural sauces instead of those cancer causing taco seasoning packs. Yes I said it. I love the flavor that they provide, but I’m not trying to die over it. I am in love with True Foods Barbecue Sauce. They have no artificial ingredients and they hide vegetables like carrots,spinach and butternut squash inside every serving. I then used an all natural tomato ketchup that is made from whole tomatoes. Yes ya’ll I have been paying attention to what I put into my mouth much more lately.
Curry powder and habanero pepper really brought home this dish for me. Both ingredients infused the dish with a true taste of the Caribbean.
