Thrilling Taco Recipes
Lentil Walnut Taco Meat
Arguably the most important part of a taco filling is the main part. So, where do we go for plant-based versions?
You want something flavourful, hopefully healthy and easy to make. Here we have all three bases covered. Great herbs and spices, onion and just a couple of other ingredients. Perfect.
Healthy Taco Seasoning
Okay, so you have your tacos, the filling is great, but something is missing.
This seasoning is gluten-free, paleo friendly and brings any meal to life, not just tacos!
Mix all the herbs and spices listed and you’ll be guaranteed the perfect seasoning.
Homemade Taco Seasoning
This seasoning is so delicious I even use it on my salads.
A great blend of herbs and spices that keeps well. Not just for tacos, you’ll be dusting it over everything!
Delicious on pasta too!
Spicy Avocado Sauce for Tacos
Every good taco needs a great sauce.
You always know when you have something good, you never want it to overpower all the other flavors, you want something that not only makes a great addition to the recipe, but something that tastes good on its own which I always think is the ultimate test.
This passes with flying colors. Super easy to make and very healthy.
Brussels Sprouts Tacos with Mexican Slaw
I know some people are bit funny with Brussels sprouts. If you’re one of them, trust me on this recipe.
The sprouts are seasoned and then baked in the oven to perfection. The taste will win over any doubters of this fantastic vegetable. Add the slaw and don’t look back!
Teriyaki Tempeh Tacos
If you’re looking for meat alternatives for your tacos, look no further.
Mary Ellen has done a fantastic job on this recipe. Using tempeh with an amazing dressing gives you a taco filling that you will just want to keep eating!
Throw in a superb Asian slaw recipe, also included, and you’ll be the only winner on game night!
Nopales, Black Bean, and Potato Rolled Tacos with Smoky Taco Cream
One of the best complete taco recipes I have seen.
The entire recipe page is the perfect instruction for you to create this masterpiece.
Not only does he walk you through each step, you also have great hints and tips. The Smoky taco cream recipe is a winner in its own right. Wonderful!
BBQ Pulled Jackfruit Tacos
Jackfruit is a great alternative for that meaty texture. It has a benign flavor so lends itself well to all sorts of recipes.
Here, the barbecue jackfruit is cooked to perfection with onions, seasoning and sauce. You also get a great recipe for Pico to Gallo and even guacamole.
Look no further for you have found your answer!
Whether you call it meat or mince, I think we can all agree that every taco needs a main filling.
What I love about this recipe is there is no single flavor that tries to steal the show. We have lentils, mushrooms with a small handful of herbs and spices to blend everything together.
Quinoa Lentil Taco Meat
Some taco ‘meats’ can be heavy on the digestion or, they taste good at first but after a couple, you get tired of the flavor quite quickly. Not here!
Adding quinoa to this recipe lightens the intensity without reducing the satisfaction. I love how simple this is to make, you’ll be ready to eat in no time.
Quinoa Black Bean Tacos with Creamy Avocado Sauce
A fantastic recipe giving you everything you need.
The ingredients are divided into three sections, the main filling, the avocado sauce and everything else.
I imagine you have most of the ingredients in your kitchen anyway.
You can add some of your favorite taco accompaniments if you need to, but really, everything you need is here. A guaranteed good time!
Korean Tacos with Spicy-Sweet Sauce
Tacos with a difference!
If you have tacos a lot and want to surprise your family and friends with something unique yet familiar, reach for this recipe. Tacos go oriental, I love it!
Pinquito Bean and Quinoa Taco Filling
When you want real food in your tacos this is what you need. No processed meat alternatives here.
These beans and quinoa go so well together. I have a friend that needs to avoid tomatoes for health reasons, so this recipe is perfect as it doesn’t have any.
Of course, if you want to add some, go right ahead!
Mediterranean Roasted Cauliflower and Lentil Tacos with Lime Tahini (Gluten-Free)
Now, I absolutely love this recipe and have never seen a taco dish like it.
Rather than just a minced filling, you get gorgeous roasted cauliflower florets along with beautifully prepared lentils and a luscious topping.
If that wasn’t enough, don’t forget the lime tahini! Delicious.
Sweet Potato Tacos
I had never really thought about it until someone told me, sweet potatoes are far less starchy than regular ones.
Here you get a taco ‘meat’ which is sweet potato and chickpeas (garbanzo beans) mixed with a small handful of herbs and spices.
You also get a wonderful kale slaw recipe and if that wasn’t enough, a superb quinoa recipe with cilantro and lime. Yum!
Zucchini Taco Boats
These are so inventive!
If you or anybody you know is looking to cut down on wheat and doesn’t fancy corn tortillas, mix it up with these zucchini boats.
The filling and drizzle is so good you definitely won’t miss anything. Great for game night but also fancy enough if you’re entertaining.
Beluga Black Lentil Tacos
I’m ashamed to say I had never heard of Beluga Black lentils. What’s wrong with me? I’ve seriously been missing out!
A great recipe that requires just 10 minutes prep time and about 40 minutes or less cooking.
I love everything about this, the onions, avocado and definitely the herbs and spices. A high-quality dish!

I feel like I should be telling you how amazing the barbecue jackfruit is, because it is!

Tofu Fish Tacos with Kiwi Salsa
I’ve had a few recipes where tofu was used to try and replicate fish. I think it’s quite difficult to get the balance just right. Here, it’s perfect!

Together, this is a match made in heaven!
