Healthy Vegan Tacos With Salsa Verde

About: I love vegan food! Here you can find my home-cooked food as well as delicious treats (I´m obsessed with chocolate!). Check out my blog for more inspirations.

Recently I made delicious healthy vegan Tacos with Salsa Verde. It´s a recipe from my blog. I really love the Mexican cuisine! You can also put this filling in a Burrito or Enchilada. It´s a great combo. Actually, it´s the first time that my self-made Mexican food is completely vegan. You can easily replace cheese and Sour cream with vegan options. But I didn´t use them in this recipe. I personally think you don´t need it because this Salsa Verde tastes heavenly and it´s definitely enough with the spicy filling. For the filling, I´ve used tofu as a minced meat replacement. You just have to crumble it with a fork. It´s so easy to make and I highly recommend it! You can also use a ready-made minced meat replacement from the supermarket.
