When I went vegan, one of the first recipes I tried was veggie fajita tacos. And while they were good, I was hungry again not long after since there wasn’t much to them (just grilled veggies). That’s one reason I love soy curl tacos–they’re just as filling as any tacos I used to eat before going vegan. (I do still love veggie tacos though like my mushroom and cauliflower tacos–I just eat more of them or have some beans and rice with them as well to make sure I’m full for longer.)
Also soy curl tacos are easy to make and delicious! They have a similar texture to chicken fajita tacos, but they’re even better in my opinion.
This is another recipe that I almost didn’t bother posting since it’s so simple, but I wish I had this recipe when I first went vegan, so hopefully some of y’all out there will enjoy it! You could snazz up this recipe by marinating the soy curls after soaking them or adding whatever spices you prefer–this is just the simple way that I like to make them. They’re so good with fresh pico and/or guacamole and a squeeze of lime. Yum! I want to try making an al pastor version at some point as well.
Also not only are these delish, but they’re also completely vegan/plant based, gluten free (assuming you use corn/gf tortillas), oil free, and high protein. You could also serve these in burritos/burrito bowls, over nachos. etc.
