Make your Easy 4 Ingredient Guacamole and Vegan Sour Cream ahead of time for the easiest and most delicious meal of the entire week.
- Veggie Grounds – I used Beyond Meat Grounds when we make these for Taco Tuesdays at home because they’re everyone’s favorite. They’re also gluten-free. Yves and Gardein also make veggie grounds, but check the labels if you’re sensitive to gluten.
- Salsa – Any variety will do
- Vegan Sour Cream – We have a delicious, creamy, Easy Vegan Sour Cream recipe here.
- Guacamole – Store-bought is fine, or try this Easy 4 Ingredient Guacamole for a fresh version.
- Hard taco shells – Soft will work too. But aren’t hard taco shells just the best?
- Spices & Seasonings – To take the Veggie Ground Meat to the next level.
- Garnishes – Lettuce, tomatoes, and cilantro (if you’re a fan).
These Easy Classic Vegan Tacos are
- Easy to make
- Easy to meal prep
Onions and spices take your everyday veggie grounds to the next level of deliciousness, and make the perfect taco filling. No pre packaged seasonings required.
If you like a bit more spice, ass chili powder and a dash of cumin to the veggie grounds, along with the spice blend listed in the recipe below.
