These Vegan Meat Tacos are made with whole plant foods, spices, kale, tomatoes and topped with delicious Vegan Cheese Sauce. The taco ‘’meat’’ is nut-free, chewy, high in protein, and a great meat substitute.
Cook 1 cup of quinoa and lentils as per package instructions.
When done, place both of them into a large mixing bowl and add spices: chili powder, smoked paprika, cumin, oregano, coriander, garlic powder, nutritional yeast, salt, and pepper to taste, salsa. Stir together until everything is evenly incorporated.
Preheat oven to 400 F. Transfer the contents of the bowl onto a baking sheet and spread it out into a thin layer. Bake on the center rack for 30 minutes, stirring every 10-12 minutes or so to ensure even baking.
