When you think of tacos, you don't usually think of them as vegan. Too often, the only vegan option at a taco stand is beans with salad, which isn't much to get excited about. This vegan tacos recipe is different.

We'll show you how to make tacos vegan with a filling made from walnuts and tofu, plus black beans with traditional spices. Vegan Mexican food never tasted as good as this!

This vegan/vegetarian taco recipe comes in a couple of parts. You'll want to make the filling for the vegan tacos first, as it takes half an hour to bake. While it's in the oven, you just need to prepare the beans and make your tortillas, then assemble and serve.



What kind of tortilla is best for this healthy taco recipe?

Either corn or flour tortillas are great for a vegan taco. Even store-bought ones will do, as you can always heat them up using a flat skillet pan when it's time to assemble your healthy tacos.

For best results, however, we recommend freshly made flour tortillas. It's worth expending the effort to make your own, especially for vegan or vegetarian tacos, so that you can be 100% sure about the ingredients.

If you haven't made them before, check out our comprehensive guide on how to make tortillas. It would be great if you have a tortilla press like this one, but if not, a flat skillet pan will also do.

What is good to serve with vegan tacos?

Aside from lettuce, toppings for a vegan taco can include other vegan-friendly ingredients, like guacamole, chopped tomatoes, scallions, or even mushrooms. Basically, you can add whatever you like!

The last word on making vegan tacos

Being vegan doesn't mean bland food. Even meatless tacos can taste really good with a few well-chosen ingredients. The protein in this recipe comes from tofu and spicy beans, and you can dress it however you like. Meat-eating family and friends will definitely be amazed at how tasty vegan tacos can be.

If you prefer to skip the beans, there are other ways to make tacos vegan. Our mushroom taco recipe, for example, is one of the easiest and quickest to make, and of course, it's healthy, too. If you have a lot of tofu in the fridge, you can also make tofu tacos. It is rich in flavor and just as good.

Meatless food can be very tasty. Try our other healthy recipes and your family and friends will wonder why they haven't gone vegan sooner!
