Simple Veggie Tacos

Simple Veggie Tacos

These tacos have been on repeat for a few weeks now, and I have served them multiple ways: as is, or with a different protein.

They are packed with flavor, filled with healthy veggies, and made in less than 30-minutes!

Instead of making a red cabbage slaw, I ended up sauteeing some with the peppers and onions, and I loved how they turned out. The cabbage gets soft and releases a mild sweetness, which balances the heat from the taco spices.

Plus, the vibrant color combo is stunning.

Serve these tacos as is, or topped with my simple chunky avocado salsa for extra flavor, and then add a protein (optional).

Protein Options:

Option 1: Serve with refried pinto beans.

Option 2: Serve with a poached or over-medium egg.

Option 3: Serve with grilled shrimp, seasoned with extra taco seasoning as noted in the instructions.

Whichever way you serve these tacos, you will not be disappointed.  These veggie tacos are super simple, packed with flavor, and extremely fulfilling. Hope you all love them!

Until next time friends, Namaste.
