Tacos are a weekly staple in our house. We’ve been making these vegetarian tacos on repeat lately and I’m beyond excited to share them with you all because they might just be one of my favorite veggie tacos EVER. They’re not only quick to prepare, but can easily be adapted with different vegetables.

The super creamy avocado sauce is what completes these tacos and it’s ridiculously easy to make! You’ll need only 4 ingredients: avocado, lime, cilantro, and garlic. It’s very and adds another layer of creaminess and acidity to these already delicious tacos!

Ingredients You’ll Need

To make these vegetable tacos you’ll just need a handful of vegetables and a few seasonings to make this recipe happen. Here’s everything you need:

How to Make Veggie Tacos – Step by Step

First add seasonings with black beans in a pan and place on a LOW simmer. Stir occasionally.

The different vegetables each cook for different times. First saute the zucchini for 3-4 minutes in butter, then add mushrooms and cook for 3 minutes. Last, stir in chopped kale for 1 additional minute with everything seasoning.

Let’s Whip up Avocado Sauce (4 ingredients)

Besides water and salt you’ll need 4 ingredients for this simple & super creamy sauce: avocado, cilantro, garlic clove, and lime juice.

Add ingredients into a blender or food processor with water and and season salt to taste. Blend until smooth.

Extra Tips for Making Vegetarian Tacos

Use any vegetable you love: these tacos are very versatile so you can use almost any vegetable you have on hand. I recommend: bell peppers, corn, carrots, broccoli, and cauliflower.

Everything Seasoning: this is a must for the vegetables! It draws tons of umami flavor from the mushrooms and brings a satisfying taste to these tacos. Either use store-bought (located in your grocery store seasoning aisle) or make it yourself!

Tortillas: I love using flour tortillas for this recipe, you can use white flour + corn blend, whole wheat, or gluten free tortillas!

Storing avocado sauce: I love keeping the leftover avocado sauce in a mason jar stored in the fridge for 2-3 days to use up on other recipes or repeat on these yummy tacos. Tip: the more lime juice in the avocado sauce the more it will stay preserved and not brown.
