Whoever said that plant-based, vegan food is boring. That is so far from the truth, at least for recipes I love. These roasted veggie tacos taste amazing with this smoky chipotle sauce. The sauce is also great for topping baked potatoes, yams or fries. I love these tacos topped with creamy avocado, chopped tomato, and a few alfalfa sprouts or lettuce for extra crunch and of course served with pinto or refried beans.
You can even get fancy and top it with a corn salsa, mango salsa, or pineapple salsa ( link from recipes posted) for extra flair. That’s the beauty of creating a fabulous taco. Simple works great, and you can add as many fillings and toppings as you wish to create your favorite taco. If you find yourself at a Mexican inspired potluck, you will see how everyone’s tacos are created differently, all suited to delight each one’s personal tastes.
There is also something so comforting about Mexican Food, mostly in particular Tacos. So much so, that Taco Tuesday has become a nationwide event.
This recipe features a simple assortment of roasted vegetables: peppers, onions, and zucchini. Feel free to add your favorite veggies like portabello mushrooms, cauliflower, kale, and yes, even carrots!

It’s all about the sauce… I am particularly excited about this Chipotle dressing because it's made with such clean and healthy ingredients. Usually, creamy sauces like this in the restaurants are made with mayonnaise as its base, but this sauce uses cashews, which is the main ingredient in making it creamy.
If you are not particularly fond of the smoky flavor, you can use the same base, and switch up the chipotle for fresh cilantro and cumin (and jalapeno if you like a little kick), swap the lemon for lime, and you have yourself a fresh cilantro lime cream sauce!
It’s just so fun when cooking plant-based, you can swap things to suit your likings, and it will almost always come out great.
