What You'll Need
  • 1 cup plant-based protein
  • 1/2 cup dairy-free cheese
  • 1 packet vegan tortillas
  • 1 cup rice
  • 1/4 cup red onion, diced
  • 1/4 cup peppers, sliced
  • 1/4 cup jalapenos, sliced
  • 1 pinch salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 handful cilantro
  1. In a large, lightly oiled skillet, heat protein until brown. Season with salt and pepper. Choose from a tofu, vegan grounds or slices. TRY IT: Very Good Taco Stuff'er from The Very Good Butchers. These plant-based grounds will crumble to perfection. For a chicken alternative, try Tofurky Chick'n. Opt for the Thai Basil variety for an Asian twist.
  2. Add in diced red onion, sliced peppers and jalapenos. Toss until tender. Set aside and simmer on low.
  3. Heat tortillas until warm or crisp, golden brown. Top with protein-veggie mix. TRY IT: Siete Tortillas are grain- and gluten-free.
  4. Top with dairy-free cheese and garnish with cilantro. TRY IT: Fiesta Blend Moocho Shreds are gluten- and dairy-free and the perfect melty topping.
  5. PRO TIP: Ditch the tortilla and opt for a rice bowl instead. TRY IT: Super Lucky Elephant Thai Hom Mali Coconut Jasmine Rice will add a hint of the tropics with a Thai twist.
