#DateNightFun: Vegan Tacos

My favourite cuisine by far is mexican. I just love all the staples and it is really easy to make vegan. Most of the time when I cook mexican I just throw whatever I have leftover in a pan with some spices and voilà, mexican dish. It is that easy. One of my favorite substitute for the minced meat in tacos are potatoes and or rice. In this recipe, I’ll show you how to make your beans, guac, salsa and meat substitute.  Vamonos!


*4 servings

for the potaotes:

  • 300 g potatoes
  • 1 white onion
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 tbsp cumin
  • 1 tbsp paprika
  • 1 tsp chili flakes
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • salt and pepper to taste

for the salsa:

  • 3 tomatoes
  • 1 red onion
  • half a lime
  • fresh cilantro
  • salt and pepper to taste

for the guacamole:

  • 2 avocados
  • 1 red onion
  • half a lime
  • fresh cilantro
  • salt and pepper to taste

  1. First cook your beans. I like to cook mine in a pressure cooker. To get the full how to check out this post.
  2. Dice the onion and garlic. Add it to a pan with a little coconut oil. Cook it for about 2 – 3 minutes until the onion gets some colour.
  3. Finely dice the potatoes and add it to the pan. Make sure they are about the same size so it cooks evenly. Add all the spices and cook until the potatoes are done, takes about 15 – 20 minutes.
  4. Prepare the salsa by cutting the onion and tomatoes, adding some fresh cilantro (or parsley, if you dislike cilantro), the juice of half a lime and seasoning it with salt and pepper. You can store it in the fridge until the potatoes are done.
  5. Finish the dish with guacamole. Add the avos in a bowl and mash it to a consistency you like. Mince the red onion and add it to the bowl with the juice of the other half of the lime, fresh cilantro and salt and pepper.
  6. Build your tacos! I prefer corn or whole wheat tortillas. Fill it with all the ingredients and dig in.
