VeganMofo: Taco Dinner

Just a quick write up about a quick and easy favourite. TACOS!

Back home this was one of the few meals my mother (notoriously picky eater) would eat, so it became somewhat of a staple. Now usually we served these puppies with diced peppers, onions, tomatoes, mixed greens and fancy fixings. But with our limited pantry we keep it pretty simple:

Yves classic ground
Salsa
Garlic
Romain lettuces
And shells

Usually I would dice mushrooms and onions to fry with the garlic but as my roommate hates both those things, we skipped them. First brown your garlic in the pan, then fry your fake meat until heated and crispy. If you have any favourite seasonings feel free to add them in as it cooks, I used paprika and pepper because supplies where limited. Now you add your salsa and continue to cook until it gets all nice and bubbly. The salsa will cook down and flavour your fake meat to make a simple and tasty filling for your crispy shells.

Note: I also like to heat the shells in the oven for 5 minutes so they get extra crispy and a little toasted.

Serve in shells with lettuces and toppings of choice. Mine was an extra dollop of salsa and hot sauce. MMM.

What are you favourite taco fixings?
