My Favorite Vegan Taco Salad

Standard
My Favorite Vegan Taco Salad

I have an obsession with Tex-Mex and all spicy foods really. So last night I decided that one of my first vegan meals would of course be Tacos!

Ingredients:
1 Bag of Gardien Beef crumbles
3/4 cup of water
1 Pouch of Old El Paso Taco seasoning
Lettuce, salsa, spinach, Daiya cheese, Arugula, taco sauce for dressing

In a large frying pan break up the beef crumbles and pour the water on. Stir over medium heat until crumbles are warmed through (there should be just enough moisture for the mix to hold to the meat substitute). Mix in taco seasoning.

I added a layer of all my greens, a layer of salsa, a layer of Daiya, a layer of taco filling and topped it off with Taco Bell Mild sauce as the dressing.

A word of caution for those who don’t like spicy foods, the plant proteins hold the heat in more than meat does!! Caliente!
