This vegan recipe is so easy to make
You only need easy healthy ingredients for plant based tacos. For the quinoa tacos all you need is 2 cups quinoa dry and 4 cups water (for cooking quinoa). You also need 2 cups shredded cabbage purple, 1 tbsp salt, or more to taste.
Seasoning for the quinoa tacos also include 1 tbsp pepper and 1 tbsp onion powder. You also need 5 whole wheat tortillas. Use medium tortillas for soft tacos and large tortillas for burritos. The plant based avocado taco dressing sauce is so simple also.
For The Avocado Dressing you need 1 medium Avocado, 1 tbsp olive oil, or vegetable broth for olive oil. Also 3 tbsp almond milk, 1 tbsp nutritional yeast (optional), and 1 tbsp onion powder. Seasoning for the avocado taco sauce recipe also include 1 tbsp garlic powder, 1 tsp salt, and 1 tsp pepper. Nutritional yeast is often fortified with vitamin B12.
You will end up with about 4 cups cooked quinoa. Add 1 tbsp salt (or more to taste) 1 tbsp pepper and 1 tbsp onion powder and stir quinoa again. Set the cooked quinoa aside while preparing avocado taco dressing sauce.
I also like to heat up the tortillas for these quinoa tacos in a frying pan to make them a little crispy. Making vegan avocado taco sauce is so easy too.
For the vegan tacos recipe avocado dressing sauce take one medium to large avocado in a medium mixing bowl and mush up with a fork.
Then add 1 tbsp nutritional yeast (optional) 1 tbsp onion powder, 1 tbsp garlic powder, 1 tsp salt, and 1 tsp pepper and mush up with the fork again. Next add the olive oil (or vegetable broth).
Use a whisk to mix and blend vegan taco sauce recipe until thoroughly combined. Lastly add almond milk to the avocado quinoa taco sauce and whisk again until thoroughly combined.
