Summary

Who knew that tacos could be so healthy? Truth is that there are countless ways to prepare tacos using plant-based ingredients. With so many filling options, you could create a different taco for every night of the week! This one, in particular, is pretty special with its plant-powered ingredients including cauliflower, avocado, black beans, and whole-grain tortillas. Layer the tacos up with even more goodness, like kimchi, cilantro, and red onion for even more healing nutrition.

Chef's Notes

Prep ahead
Make the Mouth-Watering Avocado Cream and Colorful Black Bean and Corn Salsa.

Layer it up
Add other delicious toppings like chopped romaine, tomato, red onion, and cilantro.

Add kimchi for additional flavor and probiotics.

Sprinkle with sesame seeds or hemp seeds.

Top with the black bean and corn salsa.

Options for the tortilla
Use collard greens to maximize nutrition.

Use organic romaine lettuce.

Organic, sprouted whole grain tortillas are a good option.

If using corn tortillas, choose organic.

Flour-free
Use flax meal in place of almond or oat flour.

What to look for in a hot sauce
Look for simple ingredients in a hot sauce such as vinegar, chilis, and spices. Try to avoid high sodium and hot sauces with preservatives (ingredients you don’t recognize).
