There are many ways to make vegan tacos… But this healthy, superfood based veggie taco recipe uses the best of summer veggies to create a healthy, and delicious veggie taco at home.

Healthy Tips for Making the Best Vegan Tacos:

  • Olive oil spray… Don’t add a big drizzle of olive oil when you can use a fine mist! Use olive oil spray and save 100’s of calories and lots of fat!
  • Quinoa… Quinoa, in tacos? YES!! This healthy superfood fills you up, is a complete protein, and takes on all the flavors of the taco seasoning to create a wonderful, health forward veggie taco recipe!
  • Homemade Taco Seasoning… Most store bought taco seasonings are packed full of preservatives, salt, and often are not vegan or gluten-free. Make your own, you probably already have all the ingredients!

So get creative, and pick what’s in season (and on sale) just make sure to get some crunch, something soft and something creamy (like the cucumber, cooked asparagus, and guacamole in the recipe below).
