My family’s crazy about this vegan taco filling. The taste and texture closely resembles beef. That is probably why, lol!
Try it for Mexican Taco Tuesday with my nacho cheese sauce. It’s a match made in heaven!
There are no walnuts or cauliflower in this taco meat recipe. I wanted to create something quick and easy so I used frozen Meatless Crumbles (for the vegan ground beef), mushrooms, lentils and my taco seasoning sauce. The combination creates the perfect flavour and a delicious meaty bite! - and it’s ready in a jiffy!

How to Make The Best Vegan Taco Meat:
First add the mushrooms to your food processor and pulse until they are very small but not mushy, set aside
Now mix the taco seasoning sauce ingredients in a bowl and set aside.
Heat a large non stick skillet to medium high heat. Add the oil, onions and a pinch of salt and pepper. Cook for 5 minutes while stirring.
Add in the mushrooms and cook, stirring for 3-5 minutes until the mushrooms are cooked. If you find the pan getting to hot, turn it down to medium heat.
Now add the frozen meatless crumbles and lentils. Cook for 2 minutes or so until it is heated through.
Lastly add the sauce and chopped cilantro, mix throughly. Stir until you are happy with the consistency. The sauce will evaporate quickly.
