I wanted to start this post by graciously thanking each and every one of you for supporting The Wholesome 21 and Cookies to Kale. This blog has been such a special place for me to share my passion for healthy food, and our E-Book is an extension of that inspiration. I could not do any of this without you all!
It’s been a while since I’ve posted a recipe since we have been working on our book, and I’m so excited to share this one!
As someone who suffers from allergies, I am all too familiar with seeing a gorgeous recipe, looking at the ingredients and being immediately let down. Legumes are a great vegetarian substitution, but unfortunately, I can’t have them. In fact, most meat substitutes contain some sort of soy/legume product. I’ve learned to play it safe and just stay away from these sorts of things.
What’s a girl supposed to do when she gets a craving for tacos?! I normally love using fish, but lately I have been eating more vegetables. I’m not particularly trying to be vegan, but my body is really happy eating a diet that is mostly plant-based. So, what sort of veggie would be a great meat substitution?
The answer: MUSHROOMS
I wanted to create a taco that would have all of the traditional flavors, but utilize some non-traditional ingredients. I’ve been obsessed with roasted broccoli lately, so why not throw it in there! I can do whatever I want to, there are no rules! 🙂
May I present to you the Mushroom Meat Taco with Roasted Broccoli Guacamole
I swear this was so delicious. I have actually had it for lunch two days in a row. My favorite part about these mushroom meat tacos is that although they are not a traditional taco, they are satisfying, yummy, and completely different. Why not try something new… you may find that you love it!
