Healthy Vegan Tacos

Happy Cinco de Mayo! Most of us aren’t celebrating like we usually would today, given the current pandemic we are living through. So, we are doing our best to make all of our favorite dishes today for our special at-home fiesta. One of the best things about tacos is that there are so many different ways to make them. In fact, we make them differently every time. Only exception being these delicious healthy vegan tacos. They are so delicious, we could eat them daily!


With our tacos, we usually make our Spanish rice, our tortillas, and our guacamole to go along with these amazingly healthy vegan tacos. We hope you enjoy these healthy vegan tacos, which our kids even love!
