Fishless Tacos

I tossed hearts of palm in a little oil along with crushed seaweed (snacks), cumin, garlic and onion powders. I then heated/browned them in the skillet.
Served on a flour tortilla and topped with a Vegenaise and Valentina sauce mix and chopped lettuce and onion.
Baked tortilla chips and potato/carrot queso on the side.

A Trio Of Taco Types

For taco tuesday I made 3 different tacos. All served on flour “street” sized shells.

Roasted crunchy chickpea tacos with fresh radish and Valentina hot sauce. Seasoned and sauteed heart of palm tacos with cabbage and spicy #vegenaise. Seasoned and sauteed radish tacos with grilled onion and #herdezsalsa.

Spicy Cauliflower Tacos

I chop/break apart the cauliflower into pretty small pieces then toss them in a mix of a Mexican hot sauce (like Valentina) and little oil till the small florets are coated. Roast them in 400 oven till well done (nearly burnt) 30+ minutes.
Top the tacos with a slaw made of red cabbage, mayo (I use Veganaise) and whatever spices. I included cumin, onion powder and chile powder). I also added chopped green onion.
