Tasty Tex Mex Vegan Taco Meat Recipe yes and YES! This recipe is so delicious, oil free, nut free, and gluten free. Woot Woot! This is some tasty veggie taco meat we’ve got going on here, Oooh Baby!
This recipe, is simple, tasty, healthy and freezes beautifully. The whole family will love it. There is not a walnut to be found in this recipe or cauliflower either, just tofu, mushrooms, peppers, and onions, yum!
You just need a food processor and a big baking sheet (I use a 15×21 inch ) or two smaller ones.
How to Make Tex Mex Vegan Taco Meat:
Throw all your spices in a big mixing bowl along with your wet ingredients ( minus the salsa, lime juice and Tajin mexican seasoning) give it a mix, crumble in your tofu.
Process your mushrooms in two batches, till they’re quite small, add those to the bowl. Do the same with the onions and peppers. Give everything a good mix.
Pour the taco mixture onto the baking sheet and spread it evenly. In the oven it goes.
Now once cooked I add the taco meat mixture to a bowl with some lime juice, your favourite salsa or veggie stock, and Tajin mexican seasoning or salt to taste. Boom! Done!
Now the fun part begins- Soft tacos, Hard Tacos, Burritos, Breakfast hash, Nachos?! So many options.
My favourite is a good ole hard corn taco shell with the taco meat, my Pico de Gallo, couple of pickled jalapeños, and some crunchy iceberg lettuce.
Yum, so tasty, and you can always add Guacamole and hot sauce too!
Make the mix up ahead of time and keep it in the freezer, reheat in microwave, or non stick frying pan. Dinner ready in a jiffy!
So lets get this Fiesta started. Go fire up the food processor ?
