Vegan Taco Recipe

Vegans often miss eating their favorite meat and dairy recipes and are constantly on the lookout for good ones.

Vegan tacos are a great way for vegans/vegetarians, people who can’t eat beef or dairy, or anyone who enjoys trying new things.

“I think I would like this recipe because we can’t have red meat in the house,” said Bobbie Brownlee. “My family member has both Lyme disease and alpha gal…so no meat products whatsoever.”

“The beauty of a vegan taco is its endless variety of flavor combinations,” said Trifecta.

It is a super quick recipe to make.
