It’s Vegan Taco Time, my friends!
At our house, we have Taco Tuesday every week. We all love Taco Tuesday and secretly (or not so secretly) I wish we could have tacos every night of the week. Most weeks we do fairly traditional tacos with Beefless Ground Beef from Trader Joes, beans, tomatoes, etc.
But every once in a while we step up our taco game and offer something truly special. Here are 9 of my favorite vegan taco recipes from around the internet. Most of them are gluten free or can easily be made gluten free and all of them are 100% delicious!
Frequently Asked Questions
All of these recipes will have recommended taco shells however, you can feel free to use corn and flour interchangeably. While some recipes may be better suited for one type, feel free to adjust for your diet.
Many of my favorite taco recipes skip the cheese altogether by supplementing with a deliciously creamy sauce. You will also find recipes that use homemade cheese or cheese sauce.
If you want to add vegan cheese to any of these recipes or are looking for ways to veganize your own favorite recipes, I recommend using either Follow Your Heart or Violife shreds. Also, make sure to check out my Complete Guide to Vegan Cheese for more ideas.
Several of these recipes call for jackfruit. For those of you who are unfamiliar, jackfruit is a large green tropical fruit that, when green, has very little flavor. The stringy texture, however, is similar to that of chicken or pulled pork, making it one of the most popular whole food vegan meat substitutes.
While some people buy jackfruit whole, I find getting it canned is the most convenient way to introduce jackfruit into your recipes.
