Taco Tuesday With a Twist

Taco Tuesday with a Twist
Ready to celebrate Taco Tuesday…with a twist?! Check out these Eggplant Tacos! We love that they are plant-based, gluten-free, dairy-free, low glycemic, simple to make, and taste yummy! Whether you are vegan or not, give these a try.

Full of bold, smoky flavors, the make-at-home meat substitute at the heart of this taco recipe comes together quickly from kitchen staples you probably already have in your pantry. To make these tacos raw, skip toasting the eggplant.

Vegan Eggplant Tacos

Yield: 20 mini tacos
Active Time:

Walnut Taco Filling
1 cup walnuts
3/4 cup sun-dried tomatoes, soaked in boiling water 10 minutes
1 tablespoon coconut aminos
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
Pinch cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1 to 2 large eggplants rounds
1/2 red cabbage, thinly sliced
Juice of 2 limes
Salt, to taste
1 avocado, thinly sliced
Cilantro, to garnish

Place walnuts, sun-dried tomatoes, coconut aminos, vinegar, spices, and salt in the bowl of a food processor and process until roughly combined and resembles the texture of ground meat, adding in a little water if necessary.

Slice eggplants into 1/4-inch sized rounds. Heat a skillet over medium-high heat. Working in batches, place sliced eggplant in dry skillet, and toast 30 seconds to 1 minute each side, so that the eggplant softens slightly and becomes golden brown in color.

In a small bowl, toss together cabbage with lime juice.

To assemble tacos, top toasted eggplant with desired amount of walnut filling, red cabbage, and avocado. Garnish with cilantro leaves.
