Vegan Taco Ring – great for potlucks or parties with picky eaters! 

  

I have not actually made this, but I think it’s a great idea for a potluck or party. I believe this dish is a good way to show others how easy it is to substitute plant based protein for meat. The vegan taco ring is a great dish for those transitioning to a healthier lifestyle as well because it incorporates familiar food items. 

Here is the original recipe: 

 

Ideas for a vegan/plant based taco ring:

1. Substitute the ground beef/turkey for seasoned and sautéed tofu or a mix of black and kidney beans (even slightly blend the black and kidney beans to create a chunky paste). 

2. Taco seasoning = spices from your cabinet. 

3. Instead of cheddar cheese use a dairy free cheese alternative like Dayia Shredded Cheddar. 

4. Instead of empty nutritional value shredded iceberg, use a baby green mix or a bag of mixed greens from your local farmer’s market. 

5. Load up the heirloom tomatoes! 

6. Olives, avocado, fresh sliced jalapeños, non-dairy sour cream (or even plain non-dairy yogurt). 

7. Eat and enjoy! 

Just to clarify, Pillsbury crescent rolls are vegan. However, I know there is a bunch of foreign and scary chemicals in the processed crescent rolls. 

Eat sparingly (like at a party or get-together), make your own crescent rolls, or buy an organic version. 

Eating right never tasted so good!

Vegan Chicken Taquitos with Avocado and Sweet Apples

For a busy weeknight or one of those nights you just don’t feel like cooking, these vegan chicken taquitos are perfect. Just pop them in the oven until they are nice and crispy!

The recipe can be found on the box of these Starlite Cuisine brand taquitos.

I will post it here in case you are interested.

For the yummy avocado dip, I mashed 1 large Haas avocado, 2 Tbsp’s. of lime juice, and a dash of salt.

I could have just eaten the avocado dip by itself, it was THAT good.

Even toddlers enjoy this meal. Mine did. I have tried to get her to eat avocado before and it resulted in her proclaiming it was “s’gusting”. This time she gobbled it and 1 whole taquito up.

I like this meal for a busy night, or when I’ve been at work all day and just don’t feel like cooking.

We had sweet Organic apples for dessert.
